Basically, it claims that the reason certain parts of certain states that were red have flipped is due to the populace becoming more educated, eluding to the notion that democrats are smarter than their republican counterparts and should choose for everyone else. It’s pure tripe. More in a minute.

This article is super divisive and insulting. It automatically insinuates that those with degrees are somehow smarter than others and therefore are more adept to make decisions for the whole.

It's a complete waste of bandwidth. What it fails to mention is that people often become who they associate with. Throw a conservative into a hardcore SJW university long enough and they are likely to start thinking that way. That doesn't mean that they have learned anything, rather have been reprogrammed.

Not to mention nobody is truly educated in college lmao. You get your education when you get to the job. The universities have just positioned themselves well enough that you have to pay them for that piece of paper that gets you in the door to one of those cushy jobs. At the end of the day a university is a business. They could care less about you and whether or not you succeed.

This just shows you what we are up against. As long as they have control of the education system we will continue to spiral downward and their nonsense will spread.

I think this is a ruse. The dems know that actually, it is population relocation and immigration that is feeding the libtards rise to power. As the commiefornians bail on that lost utopia they are spreading there ilk to historically red states and areas. It is not education, it is infiltration. They have the population they just need to relocate it to where it will sway the balance toward dems. And where that is not happening fast enough it's immigration and open borders that will give them power. I don't know how many people realize that the commie libs are only about 100,000 votes or so in Texas from never losing another Presidential election. God help us, or better yet maybe the time draws near for us to help ourselves. To quote a great president "the problem is not that the liberals know so much, it's that what they know just isn't so" or something like that.

Sadly, I think you are right. I don’t know the actual number but it’s edging closer and closer every cycle it seems like. The problem is, how many cycles will it take for people to figure that out? 2, 3, 5? I ain’t getting any younger. I’m not old but I’m not sure how much longer we have, realistically.

Red states are being educated? Really?! More like the younger generation in college are being indoctrinated in believing the Left is all peaches and cream and the Right is pure fucking evil. As a parent of young kids myself I highly recommend to other parents of young kids at the Hide to do your best in teaching your kids the right way so that when they're old enough to go to college, they won't get fooled into the Leftist bullshit that's being taught.

South Carolina hasn’t sent a newly elected Democrat to Congress for 25 years. But on Tuesday, voters in the Charleston area broke form and chose a Democrat over a Republican endorsed by President Trump.

That result might seem like an outlier, given South Carolina’s strong Republican tradition. But it is more evidence of a powerful new factor in politics: the nation’s growing educational divide.


Democratic pickups in House races in Oklahoma and Georgia might also have seemed unexpected, given that Republicans hold the major, statewide offices in both states. But as in South Carolina, the outcomes fit a pattern of voters with bachelor’s and advanced degrees swinging away from the GOP. White voters with lower educational attainment, meanwhile, have shifted toward the GOP.
Of the 34 House districts that Democrats picked up from Republicans as of Friday’s tallies, 29 are in the top half among all House districts for educational attainment, meaning more than 30% of adults there have bachelor’s or more advanced degrees.
Democrats now represent 27 of the 30 House districts with the largest concentration of college-educated Americans. Before Tuesday, they held 20 of those districts.
Blue Streak
Voters increasingly back Democrats in the 30 House districts with the highest shares of people with bachelor's and advanced degrees.



When Bill Clinton entered the White House a quarter-century ago, the parties evenly divided the top 30 districts. Republicans since then have gained in working-class and rural areas, and among white voters without bachelor’s degrees.

The result is an America divided in a new way. “The new cultural divide is education,” says Bill McInturff, a Republican pollster.

Education helps explain some of Tuesday’s results that might seem like outliers in solid-Republican states.

In South Carolina, voters last sent a Democrat to Congress from the Charleston, S.C., area in 1979. In Georgia, a Democrat raised $30 million last year to compete in an Atlanta-area district—and lost. On Tuesday, the party carried both seats.


Both those districts—South Carolina’s 1st and Georgia’s 6th—are in the top half among all House districts for educational attainment. Both also have some of the largest shares of college-educated adults in their states.


Flipped
In South Carolina and Georgia, House districts flipped from the GOP to Democratic control have high educational attainment.



Similarly, Democrats on Tuesday won a House seat in usually-Republican Oklahoma, in a district that’s in the top half of all House districts ranked by educational attainment.

And in Utah, where Republican Mitt Romney cruised to victory for a Senate seat, Democrats were leading as of Sunday in a House district that is also in the top half.

At the same time, education helps explain why some political outliers on the House map no longer have that status.

One example is a northern Minnesota district that has backed Democrats in every House election except one since 1946. The district, with a history rooted in mining and shipping, has a large share of the working-class, white voters who on a national level have moved toward the GOP.

Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District had largely withstood the trend—until Tuesday, when voters elected a Republican.



The educational divide is a new feature of politics and is a force among the white electorate rather than among minority groups, polling data shows.

As the Journal discussed in a recent story, its possible causes include the financial crisis of 2007-2008 and changing cultural outlooks. Americans without bachelor’s degrees recovered more slowly from the economic downturn than did those with degrees. At the same time, attitudes toward immigration, guns, health care and other issues diverged among whites with and without bachelor’s degrees. White women who have degrees and white men without degrees diverged most sharply.

The trend is especially strong at the outer edges of the educational spectrum. “Republicans are now the party of those with a high-school diploma or less,” Mr. McInturff said, “with Democrats having a totally dominating advantage among those with a postgraduate degree.”

The issue is less about education than it is education vs indoctrination. These are two words that should live in separate rooms but now they share a bed in a college dormotory near you (much like liberal and left). The dumbing-down of education is a by-product of indoctrination. The NPC memes leftists rail against are quite unfortunately exactly what colleges try so hard to produce: group-thinking, dogma babbling, automotons.

Of all of the reasons the authors could have explored for why people vote the way they do they took refuge (from an uncomfortable reality) and found solace in a prejudicial belief that typifies the left, and what the NPC meme movement was given rise to through exasperation... there are two types of people in the world and Trump voters are the dumb ones.

About the NPC memes, and in like many areas in life, you only catch flak when you’re over the target.

Also, a lot of what the left has symptoms of is the Dunning-Kruger effect. Basically, their hubris gets in the way of rational thought because they think they are smarter than they actually are. They don’t know, what they don’t know.

My fathers wisdom is timeless.

Know what you know.

Know what you don’t know.

Never confuse the two.

Truthfully, college enrollment is plummeting and has been for some years. So, if it's true that College Boyz become Democrats we should see less Democrats soon.

I live in Charleston, SC born and raised and here is my take on it. First we have had a huge population increase mostly from people that are from blue states when I meet people out and about they are surprised that I am actually from here. I always here "wow we hardly ever meet any locals" Second Joe Cunningham the democrat that won against Katie Arrington the republican hammered a issue that even most locals were against "offshore drilling" off the coast of Charleston. He even got all the local republican mayors from the beaches to endorse him mostly over off shore drilling. Katie Arrington said she was also against it, but I believe there were some older interviews where she said she was ok with it. Third Katie Arrington beat the well know Mark Sanford in the republican primary to run against Joe Cunningham and Mark Sanford wouldn't endorse her for the main race a lot of people think if he would have that might have made the difference. Forth there were a lot of reports of voter fraud the next morning after the election a lot of people were calling in the local radio stations saying the voting machines wouldn't let them vote a straight republican ticket, but would let a straight democratic ticket go through some people were even saying some of the machines wouldn't accept Katie Arlington at all and a few handicap voters said when they got the ballot brought out to them in their cars they were already filled out all democrat. So even with all that she didn't lose by much.

Ga 6th is easily explained by the Mexicans taking over parts of Cobb and Cobb’s public transportation. CCT (buses linked to Marta) ruined the area.

Gents, keep pushing this kind of info out to the masses!!! Whatever came of the voter fraud issue? Did you contact the AG and your official over voting for your state?
