Well, Democrat voters are, at least, younger.
And, if CNN medical guru Sanjay Gupta is to be believed, younger translate to dumber.
Gupta reports — and Wikipedia agrees — that the frontal lobe of the brain (frontal cortex) does not fully mature until around age 25.
And, the frontal lobe is where anticipating the future occurs: things like understanding consequences of actions and reasoning,
“In humans, the largest part of the frontal cortex, i.e. the Prefrontal cortex, is responsible for internal, purposeful mental action, commonly called reasoning or Prefrontal Synthesis.
The function of the PFC involves the ability to project future consequences that result from current actions. PFC functions also include override and suppression of socially unacceptable responses as well as differentiation of tasks.
The PFC also plays an important part in integrating longer non-task based memories stored across the brain. These are often memories associated with emotions derived from input from the brain’s limbic system. The frontal lobe modifies those emotions, generally to fit socially acceptable norms.”
So, if Democrat voters are, on average, younger and have incompletely developed frontal lobes, SCIENCE tells us that they are likely, on average, to be less able to project the future, less able to reason, and less able to fit in socially.
Bottom line: Democrat voters are dumber.
Not just my opinion. IT’S SCIENCE!
