I think in general they have moved toward trying to be an unbiased organization.
Its very rare to see an unbiased organization... especially one made up of nearly all academics. Its is the rare animal that has a PHd that leans right much less has a grasp of what it takes to work a real job. My wife just got her Doctorate... I love her to death but there are days she couldnt find her way out of a wet paper bag. If I didnt explain things to her about the news, our government, the military, and dealing with those of different 'faiths' she would no doubt lean way left like the rest of her co-workers. And to keep her 'cush job' she has to keep her mouth shut about her political beliefs.

BTW Heli-splat, thx for catching that... fixed for yah... when you get in a hurry and partake in a copious amounts of caffeine... but it still shows the ludicrousness of the idea that we can gather such a tiny random number of people to make a prediction about the whole.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Do you not find it ironic that you say it is rare for the educated (to me PHD is educated) to ever lean right. From this statement I can deduce you would say the less educated are typically right leaning.

If your wife is an educated woman you should value her opinions and not make your opinions hers.

Yeah ... you don’t live with a PHD... I do.

One day we were watching animal planet... they were talking about caribou having to evade predators and hunters... she turned and said “... why don’t they just fly and get where they’re going?” My son and I laughed and thought it was a great sarcastic joke.. we seriously thought she was joking... she turned around and looked as us like we were stupid. My response to her was “you serious?” She nodded as if to say “yeah WTF?”

True story happened 8 years ago.

So you see I value her opinion... but yeah opinions don’t always have anything to do with fact.
