"Higher levels of education and awareness of current events, however, are linked to a reduction in belief in such theories, the study reported."
Most important line in the entire article.
"Democrats and independents with more political knowledge were found to be more likely to dismiss conspiracy theories, while Republicans with more political knowledge were more likely to believe the theories."
I'd like to hear some opinions on this statement.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
I think it all depends on what the study defines as "political knowledge". If that term means watching MSNBC v. Fox, I would absolutely believe that statement.
When combined with:
"The poll also found that 63 percent of registered voters believe at least one political conspiracy theory."
What does this say about voters in general....
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
It could also indicate that republicans "might be" more open-minded on controversial issues than people give then credit for.
