EVEN THE LEFT-OF-CENTER PEW RESEARCH CENTER COULDN'T SPIN (TOO MUCH) THE NEWS MOST OF US ALREADY KNEW ABOUT THE LIBERAL/CONSERVATIVE 'IQ GAP'

Republicans are more in tune with government, current events and news than Democrats ... and the gap is getting wider.

Want to take the test yourself? This one only includes 13 questions.

Go here:


2012 PEW Research Center Quiz


I answered 13 out of 13 questions correctly which means I scored more than 92% of the public.

That's pretty good considering people are always telling me how I am wrong about everything,

Gee … that must make me a liberal! *sarc*

Or the test must be REALLY easy for me to score in the top 8%. Or that 92% of the people in this country are even dumber than me! *hee hee*

PEW did try to soften the results showing Republicans scored higher on every question

In a 2010 Pew survey, Republicans outperformed Democrats on 10 of 12 questions, with one tie and Democrats outperforming Republicans on just 1 of the 12.

On the latest survey, however, Republicans outperformed Democrats on every single one of 19 questions.

“Republicans generally outperformed Democrats on the current quiz. On 13 of the 19 questions, Republicans score significantly higher than Democrats and there are no questions on which Democrats did better than Republicans. In past knowledge quizzes, partisan differences have been more muted, though Republicans often have scored somewhat higher than Democrats.”

It’s a pretty easy test if you keep up with things so give it a try. If you don’t score well that might be a hint you need to pay a little more attention … especially if you plan on voting on November 7 - (that’s a little joke).
