A recent poll indicated stronger support for Obama than Romney, prompting Republicans and conservatives to complain that the sample was biased. Without actually commenting on the poll itself, I was dismayed by the following line in the report: "higher-than-average number of college educated respondents in the poll 'may have produced a higher level of support for Obama'." So, smarter and educated folk seem to support the president, while those with lower educational attainment support Romney. Doesn't anyone see this trend as troubling? It doesn't surprise me, but it is seldom written up so blatantly.
