    This is the very reason Republicans have gutted public education in the states they run.  Republicans and Trump supporters know no educated person votes for their candidates.  The era of the Republican/right-wing is over, and they know it. 

    Also interesting to note that virtually all of those states you listed send more money to the federal government than they receive back.  Unlike red states that suck down the federal welfare dollars to prop up their corrupt Republican-run regimes and support the worthless white racists who refuse to go to school and refuse to get a job.

    i do not know why

    please.. we see the main reason is corruption! the wealthiest parents payoff the schools of their choice so their dumb kids can graduate from the best universities! The wealthy want to keep their money in their pocket and make their pockets grow by all means even if it means bribery and corruption. The wealthy are the ones that can afford higher education. So voting democrat only helps their own pocket and squashes the middle class. They keep the poor to do their dirty deeds. and you can't say that's not true, look at all the "elite" celebrities and corrupt politicians like crooked hillary and dirty Joe (hmmm, wonder how his son secured a million $$ a year job with the precise company dirty joe was dealing with when he was the joke of a vice president and crookeds daughter went to Stanford! and made millions of $$ working for the clintoon "foundation"???The states your mentioning are the wealthiest in the nation. It is greed and corruption and the love of money which keeps them voting democrat. Their intelligence comes from their pocket not their heads.

    It is not the WELL-EDUCATED STATES that vote Democrat, it is the most indoctrinated states that vote democrat, you would know this and not have to ask if you were well educated instead of well indoctrinated.

    most of the educated people are of high intelligence and thus rational. cons are more likely to behave like children.

    Let me start off by saying this,since the wealthier states are in fact blue, can liberals really claim they are oppressed? What is with liberals still claiming oppression since companies favor them for higher positions as well as universities treating liberal oriented students better as universities are designed for liberal indoctrination.Corporate Globalism favors the left because they are more compliant to following their orders.When America hits collapse I will laught when you greedy liberal scum get whats coming to you.

    Most well educated or most indoctrinated? There is a difference.

    Because they BRAINWASHED THE POOR to vote for them or paid them off with the offer of more freebies for doing less work.
