    Here's why Trump won

    Willful ignorance and stupidity.

    Apparently, there are just enough stupid people to gerrymander "stupid districts" because over half of Americans think positively of high education.

    Poll: Most Republicans say colleges have negative impact on US


    A majority of Republicans in a new survey think colleges and universities have a negative effect on the U.S.
    The Pew Research Center poll finds 58 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents think colleges and universities hurt the country.
    Just 36 percent of Republicans think they have a positive effect.

    Believe me, I'm not at all knee-jerk in favor of some of the things in universities. But the point is, people go there to explore different viewpoints and learn something, and make EDUCATED decisions.

    Overall, that might be a good thing. I'm not sure, though... Maybe it's bad? Hang on let me ask Fox News what they think. I'll get back to you tomorrow.

    I have such a hard time understanding why education has become such a dirty word in conservative circles.

    Because the neo-con talking points are utterly preposterous...but only if you know how to think in a straight line for more than 1 or 2 steps before you get confused. Period, fact, stop.

    Because liberals run higher education and have it in for conservatives.

    If you are openly conservative in a university setting its an environment of hate directed at you.

    If you are a conservative and a Christian you automatically get tagged with a life expectancy number.

    Because Hillary.

    Many reasons, but Hillary only has to look in the mirror to see the number one reason.

    The anti-intellectualism of Americans is legendary, but this is hard to believe. We are a hysterical bunch, we Americans.

    STEM is toast. China is going to win without firing a shot. It will take quite a few years, but they are a patient bunch.

    Wait...Liberals run higher education? [*!*]***SO_XXXCITED !: Opium Trade Built Many American Fortunes of Skull & Bones Members

    Who do you think continues to fund our most influential and powerful universities?

    Oh, I'll grant that they are also a playground for quasi-liberal poser excesses that could nauseate Jane Fonda with their sappiness. But that isn't what they ARE or what they DO.
