Republicans are more intelligent. If only whites are considered, things look a little brighter for whiterpeople:

Party IDAverage IQ
Republican100.9 (100.0)
Democrat100.1 (102.3)
Independent96.3 (95.0)

In the aggregate, there is little apparent relationship between intelligence and party identification among whites, other than self-styled independents being less intelligent than either Democrats or Republicans, a pattern that is also apparent among moderates in comparison to liberals and conservatives.


From anecdotal evidence here: independents are those who don't grasp how the game is played, and so generally are flakes more than being stupid, and republicans are divided between a blue collar faction (115 average IQ) and a wealthy yet realistic faction (IQs between 120-150). On the other hand, liberals are generally disillusioned underachievers (IQ 115) and wealthy opinion workers (IQ 120-125).
