Might I suggest the business insider article on the research that found college educated people are more likely to fall on the left/democratic side of the political line. In fact, the more education one receives is directly linked to more staunchly democratic leanings. Conversion rates from students who originally identified as Republican or conservative in the beginning of their college career and later revised their political opinions is as documented. The research showed that it’s not that democrats are more likely to go to college, but that college education is more likely to influence an increasingly liberal viewpoint. Knowledge is power. The more you know….just something to consider.
