    These numbers are similar on the best educated states as well. My point is this is not about race as you were implying.

    How similar?

    American, you know the real reason why we are falling behind the rest of the world?

    Arrogance and laziness.....

    As a whole, our children probably spend more time on social networks, video games, and watching TV than other kids around the world. The average household do not put the focus into education like other countries do. America is kind of like the jocks from Revenge of the Nerds. We think we are invincible and we do not feel like we can lose.

    Also we let media and politicians tell us how to think because we are too lazy to think on our own. We continually fight each other over stupid things while the rest of the world just pass us by.

    Our downfall is not going to be China or India or Russia. It is going to our ignorance.

    SUCCESSFUL college-educated people vote conservative by an overwhelming margin.

    Education is not even half the equation. Hard work, character, perseverance, and ethics - sprinkled with formal education and experience - define a truly "educated" person.

    Liberals tend to be generally useless, whether they hung around in college until they got a piece of paper or not.

    And here we have a classic example of not being able to understand how to use statistics. Let me give you some much more relevant statistics. Source: A Closer Look at the Parties in 2012 | Pew Research Center for the People and the Press

    In contrast, 61% of Democrats are white,
    Uh oh, that makes your statistic look kinda underwhelming. The vast majority of democrats are in fact white.

    More directly related to the OP:

    Lower-income and less educated whites also have shifted substantially toward the Republican Party since 2008...

    Similarly, whites without a college degree now tilt decidedly toward the Republican Party the GOP now holds a 54% to 37% advantage among non-college whites, who were split about evenly four years ago. The partisanship of white college graduates, by contrast, has not changed.
    UH OH!

    Tell me how is it we hear so much about blacks being negatively affectly by education issues, because they are liberal voters. So it must be a lie, and they are actually more educated than we are led to believe.

    Our tolerance is standing in the way of our education? What? Also how does this work when the best educated countries are even more tolerant than we are?
