GOP: The anti-science party, documented

SHARE

A new study in the American Sociological Review examined how conservative trust of science has declined over the years. The problem is more pronounced among the educated (h/t Andrew Sullivan):

Conservatives with high school degrees, bachelor’s degrees, and graduate degrees all experienced greater distrust in science over time and these declines are statistically significant. In addition, a comparison of predicted probabilities indicates that conservatives with college degrees decline more quickly than those with only a high school degree.
