The negative statistics from red States come overwhelmingly from the Obama zombies.
Republican voting Southern Whites are very well educated, civil, physically fit, etc.
Also, lefties stupidly consider any college degree, no matter how brainless or useless or no matter how uncompetitive the college, to be a symbol being "well educated".
From the liberal perspective, highly skilled electricians and the like aren't "well educated", but a person with a useless degree in art history from low I.Q. Norfolk State is an intellectual.
