Based on your day-to-day interactions with people, how do you rate liberals vs. conservatives when it comes to overall intelligence? 

What about their respective knowledge and understanding of politics, current events, etc.?

Most liberal people I know are hyper emotional about issues and know surface level understanding of issues that is reflected in what is on CNN or MSNBC - little else.

I've encountered quite a few like that.  Even some highly educated people who are otherwise pretty smart fall apart when it comes to political/social issues. 

I know conservatives who are off the rails with conspiracy theories, but they are a minority.

Gee, what an insightful topic.  Roll Eyes  I wonder if posters will say that people who share their political affiliation are smarter and have more positive character traits, while those with differing views are dumber and have more negative character traits?

At least you qualified these statements. Maybe you gravitate to hyper emotional people. Regardless of where people stand on the political left to right spectrum their level of general understanding of the issues is limited, this includes most politicians as well. I don't know about you, but I watch news and read articles from both the left and the right. Heck, most of the politically orientated posters on Getbig lean strongly to the right, including you. I lean left and I read your posts. I'm more of a "big picture" kind of guy. In my opinion, the truth in these matters are generally somewhere in the middle.

Take the Second Amendment rights give people the right to bear arms. The weapons people used when the article was written are nothing like the ones we have today. Why would anyone outside the military need semi-automatic and automatic weapons which are designed to take out a large number of people and fire at one second intervals? -Can't use these for hunting because they'd destroy whatever got hit. All the fire power any civilian needs to protect themselves and others is a pistol or a rifle.

Yes, I agree.  So insightful you couldn't help commenting. 

Another trait I've noticed with a disproportionate number of liberals is arrogance.

I tend to think - From my limited interaction with Liberals & from what I see & Read
That a lot of Liberals are easyly Triggered if you don't agree with them & come across
As very Emotionally Weak / unstable Also Have a hard time with Factual statistics.

Not saying  that makes them less intelligent.

We've seen the emotional response in full effect since the election.

It seems that Trump voters are less educated ( see poll).
Trump's base is composed of those WITHOUT a college degree.
Those with a college education are LESS likely to support Trump.

I did ok in school and got some formal education , so I fit into the poll trend.

Pretty silly to apply that label to all 62+ million people who voted for Trump.

Trump's base isn't the 46.4% of the electorate who voted for him, but rather about half of that number (maybe a little more) who are his core supporters.

 Huh This makes no sense. I said "insightful", not "interesting". My commenting on the predictableness of a shallow, circle jerk thread doesn't prove it's either, though.


... and considering your well-documented history of being able to read minds, inability to click a link that opposes a point you're trying to make and your conveniently selective ability to comprehend English, it's probably safe to assume you're using a definition of "arrogance" that the rest of reality doesn't subscribe to.

Oh shut the heck up.  Stop trying to sound smart.   You're not.  You're a hack, incapable of independent thought.  And your analytical ability sucks. 

But thanks for your participation.   Smiley
