Average IQ in the States and the Election

I don't make up the numbers. I just print them. Someone else is responsible for this but he does a nice job with the colors, don't you think? Posted by Hello

In fairness, though, the data comprising this chart is purportedly a hoax although the order is roughly correct. You can see supposedly more accurate data here and here. And then of course there is the fact that a difference of 10 IQ points represents less than one standard deviation in the distribution (but that is a subject for another time and class).
