Test scores show Obama supporters have a low IQ
Denver, CO - The Institute for Freedom released its annual report on American politics and it had some profound revelations.

Professor Sidney Campbell's report highlighted the disparity in current voting trends and some eye opening facts about Barack Obama.

Dr. Campbell: "Our findings have shown that a typical Barack Obama supporter is between 19 and 37 years old. Sixty-seven percent never graduated high school. Twelve percent graduated high school."

Further statistics reveal that of all study groups, the Obama supporters have an average IQ of 78. This is the lowest of any candidate's support group ever and at any time in history.

Re: Test scores show Obama supporters have a low IQ
The modern controversy surrounding intelligence and race focuses on the results of IQ studies conducted during the second half of the 20th century in the United States, Western Europe, and other industrialized nations. In almost every testing situation where the tests were administered and evaluated correctly, a difference of approximately one standard deviation was observed between the mean IQ score of blacks and whites. In the United States, the mean IQ score among blacks is approximately 85 and the mean IQ score among whites is approximately 100; the mean IQ score of Hispanics is usually reported to be between the mean black and white scores. The mean score for people of East Asian and Jewish descent is usually higher than the mean score of whites, but the extent of that difference is not precisely known. However, several studies place the median IQ of Ashkenazi Jews (who make up the overwhelming majority of American Jews) at approximately one standard deviation above the mean for other whites. In a normal distribution, only about 16% of the population is at least one standard deviation above the mean

Similar gaps are seen in other tests of cognitive ability or aptitude, including the SAT. Likewise, the gap is reflected by gaps in the academic, economic, and social factors correlated with IQ. The practical importance of intelligence makes the source and meaning of the IQ gap a pressing social concern.

Many compilations of average IQ by country place East Asian countries at the top of such lists. Some argue that this is in part attributed to some IQ tests' inherent bias towards testing spatial reasoning. They argue that logographic languages like Chinese or Japanese develop spatial reasoning better than Roman languages prevalent in Europe and America. The same reasoning has been used to explain why students from Asia-Pacific countries (eg Singapore, South Korea) tend to score better than average in tests of mathematics. Some argue that the East Asian advantage can also be explained by more rigorous education programs. Opponents of these interpretations point out that people of East Asian descent who are born and educated in the United States and primarily speak English have a higher mean IQ score than their white peers.

Arthur Jensen was one of the first researchers to propose that the IQ gap between blacks and whites is best explained by a hypothesis that attributes at least some of the cause to genetic factors. His 1969 paper in "Harvard Education Review" also stated that compensatory education was not very effective and that "genetic differences were more important than cultural or socioeconomic differences in explaining individual differences in IQ within the white population."

In 1974, an English biologist named John Randal Baker presented a lengthy argument in favor of innate racial differences in intelligence in a volume entitled "Race" (Oxford University Press, 1974), in which he claimed there had been a systematic, politically motivated suppression of classical biological anthropology outside Germany since the 1930s, and went on to attempt to demonstrate a relation among five historical civilizations (Sumerian, Egyptian, Indus valley, Helladic-Minoan and Sinic) and the supposed biological dispositions of their creators.

Re: Test scores show Obama supporters have a low IQ
Point of order: Article says O supporters have average IQ of 88, not 78. Still not too good, but not quite as bad as in OP.

I'm pretty sure this article is a joke, though, based on this:

"Recent IQ tests results were released today for VP Joe Biden. His scores were above the norm at 104. He is considered a genius amongst his fellow Democrats."

That said, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if the story was true.

I have a difficult time believing the veracity of this story. FTR I am not a Obama fan but I graduated from one of the best schools in the country A school that basically requires a very high IQ, such as it is, to attend. I know by my continued connections that many , many people from that school and other schools with similar standards and pedigree are or at least were Obama supporters.
What isn't being said here is many our best bodies of higher learning are and have been for at least 40 years now, subtly but distinctly ,instilling "leftist" values out of balance with "conservative views.
It seems to have been policy .

Sure, there are plenty of smart Obama voters, but for every PhD, there are probably 5-10 of these.

I read somewhere awhile back that the majority of Obama supporters were voters with either more than 4 years of higher education, no higher education, or high school drop-outs.

If that can be believed then I would submit that only 1% of Obama supporters could be considered even remotely intelligent.
