Conservatives exhibit less cognitive ability than liberals do. Or that's what it says in the social science literature, anyway. For example, a 2010 study using data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health found that the IQs of young adults who described themselves as "very liberal" averaged 106.42 points, whereas the mean of those who identified as "very conservative" was 94.82 points. Reason Science Correspondent Ronald Bailey delves into the research and finds that there is one political tendency whose adherents are generally smarter than either liberals or conservatives.
