Probably because I already answered it. Think of it in terms of how a political scientist will quantify a portion of the population, not as a synonym for stupid.

That's why I said that, on the semantic level (not the more colloquial one, which is the way that you're looking at it I think) not going to college literally means that you're uneducated.

Don't confuse it with uninformed.

I've never wondered why people get in fights with me. I'm a big boy. I also don't care. As soon as I hit the "sleep" button the internet *poof* goes away. Frowny, is his usual snotty nosed pretentious and dickish way hurled a volley across my bow. I responded in kind.

@Frown: Still don't understand. You can be educated without a college degree.

If your posts are what not having a college degree looks like, then no, you can't be intelligent without a college degree.

But dumbasses with college degrees are still educated though. That's the point. The word "uneducated" when used by political scientists and journalists means that they didn't go to college. It's kind of like how the unemployment rate is based off of how many people are unemployed and looking for work, not just people without jobs. Context is important as ****.

Your degree in Psychology doesn't make you smarter than anyone but the reason the college educated are more likely to be leftist is the same reason Urban voters are overwhelmingly leftist even in red states

When you go off to college you get exposed to a lot of different ideas and people and cultures that are not your own

if you live in a rural area and never go to college you can live your entire life with very little exposure to ideas outside your upbringing
