Yet another new survey shows that Republican supporters know more about politics and political history than Democrats.
On eight of 13 questions about politics, Republicans outscored Democrats by an average of 18 percentage points, according to a new Pew survey Partisan Differences in Knowledge.
The Pew survey adds to a wave of surveys and studies showing that GOP-sympathizers are better informed, more intellectually consistent, more open-minded, more empathetic and more receptive to criticism than their fellow Americans who support the Democratic Party.
Republicans fare substantially better than Democrats on several questions in the survey, as is typically the case in surveys about political knowledge, said the study, which noted that Democrats outscored Republicans on five questions by an average of 4.6 percent.

but of course
The survey was skewed because it wasn’t written in Ebonics or Spanish.
That means the whole survey was racist.
I am very surprised that Pew didn’t just pitch this one down the memory hole.
” . . . concluded that the customers of Popeyes, White Castle, Dunkin Donuts and Chuck E Cheese were mostly Democratic . . . “
Okay, they can have Popeyes and Chuck E Cheese, but they damn well better not ruin my source of sliders and doughnuts!
I’ve never had one GOP voter ask me if I wanted to see his/her deed for the Brooklyn Bridge either.
There are no pictures.....sheeesh!
A March Washington Post poll showed that Democrats were more willing to change their views about a subject to make their team look good. For example, in 2006, 73 percent of Democrats said the GOP-controlled White House could lower gas prices, but that number fell by more than half to 33 percent in 2012 once a fellow Democrat was in the White House.
In contrast, the opinions of GOP supporters were more consistent. Their collective opinion shifted by only a third, according to the data. In 2006, 47 percent in believed the White House could influence gas prices. By 2012, that number had risen to 65 percent up 17 points compared to the Democrats 40 point shift.
Donks have no substantial moral compass, GO. FIGURE.
Here is a really fun one...
the firm also conducted a study of chain restaurants customers which concluded that the customers of Popeyes, White Castle, Dunkin Donuts and Chuck E Cheese were mostly Democratic, while the customers at Cracker Barrel, Chik-fil-A, Panera and Bob Evans were mostly Republican.
The same restaurants study showed that the the customers at Cracker Barrel, Panera and Bob Evans were the most likely to vote in elections.
Sliders bump! White Castle bump! Krystal (the southern version of WC) bump!
I think an interesting bit of research would be to discover the tipping habits of dems compared to repubs.
Example of democrat voters:
“White Castle bump! “
George Webb’s bump!
The test procedures were defective. Democrats do their best when herded en masse onto busses and then told what the answers are. Occasionally, even this procedure goes awry, see FL 2000.
