Right-Wingers Are Less Intelligent Than Left Wingers, Says
Study Children with low intelligence grow up to be prejudiced
Right-wing views make the less intelligent feel 'safe'
Analysis of more than 15,000 people


Right-wingers tend to be less intelligent than left-wingers,
and people with low childhood intelligence tend to grow up to
have racist and anti-gay views, says a controversial new study.
Conservative politics work almost as a 'gateway' into prejudice
against others, say the Canadian academics. The paper analysed
large UK studies which compared childhood intelligence with
political views in adulthood across more than 15,000 people.
The authors claim that people with low intelligence gravitate
towards right-wing views because they make them feel safe.


The survey, which compared childhood intelligence with
political views, is bad news for David Cameron, the
Conservative Party Prime Minister but should give a lift to
Labour Party leader, Ed Miliband, pictured in Question Time
Crucially, people's educational level is not what determines
whether they are racist or not - it's innate intelligence,
according to the academics. Social status also appears to play
no part. The study, published in Psychological Science, claims
that right-wing ideology forms a 'pathway' for people with low
reasoning ability to become prejudiced against groups such as
other races and gay people.


Left-wingers tend to be more open-minded says the survey -
Democrats voted in first black U.S. president Barack Obama. But
right-wing ideology forms a pathway for prejudice - Republican
frontrunner Mitt Romney, pictured right, was glitter-bombed
yesterday by gay-rights activists because of his views
'Cognitive abilities are critical in forming impressions of
other people and in being open minded,' say the researchers.
'Individuals with lower cognitive abilities may gravitate
towards more socially conservative right-wing ideologies that
maintain the status quo. 'It provides a sense of order.'
The study, by academics at Brock University in Ontario, Canada,
used information from two UK studies from 1958 and 1970 , where
several thousand children were assessed for intelligence at age
10 and 11, and then asked political questions aged 33. The 1958
National Child Development involved 4,267 men and 4,537 women
born in 1958. RELATED ARTICLES

'Individuals with lower abilities may gravitate towards
right-wing ideologies that maintain the status quo. It provides
a sense of order,' say the academics The British Cohort Study
involved 3,412 men and 3,658 women born in 1970. It's the first
time the data from these studies has been used in this way. In
adulthood, the children were asked whether they agreed with
statements such as, 'I wouldn't mind working with people from
other races,' and 'I wouldn't mind if a family of a different
race moved next door.' They were also asked whether they agreed
with statements about typically right-wing and socially
conservative politics such as, 'Give law breakers stiffer
sentences,' and 'Schools should teach children to obey
authority.' The researchers also compared their results against
a 1986 American study which included tests of cognitive ability
and questions assessing prejudice against homosexuals. The
authors claim that there is a strong correlation between low
intelligence both as a child and an adult, and right-wing
politics. The authors also claim that conservative politics is
part of a complex relationship that leads people to become
prejudices. 'Conservative ideology represents a critical
pathway through which childhood intelligence predicts racism in
adulthood,' says the paper. 'In psychological terms, the
relation between intelligence and prejudice may stem from the
propensity of individuals with lower cognitive ability to
endorse more right wing conservative ideologies because such
ideologies offer a psychological sense of stability and order.'
'Clearly, however, all socially conservative people are not
prejudiced, and all prejudiced persons are not conservative.'

only forge posts and then redirect followups. They're just whiney little
cowards that are incapable of taking care of themselves and want real
people to wipe their little butts for them. The last dying gasps of a
dying idiotic ideology.

important to them to elect a "father" figure.

But greenies want others to ignore reality.

They want to spew about what some cherry-picked study or climate model

We are talking about entitlement freeloader, not BS reports that
include federal salaries and federal upkeep.

Certain types of people are so stupid welfare is all they know and
federal housing. The few with a work ethic do deserve welfare while
they try to better their lives. The true trash have 5 kids while on
welfare.
