A question occurred to me while I was vacationing: suppose we theorize that a political party is smarter (or dumber) than another.
### Research indicates that Democratic voters are on average dumber than Republican voters, the difference is a couple IQ points if I remember correctly.
IQ tests are controversial. Even if we could figure out some kind of acceptable IQ test, the data set would be microscopic and self-selected. Are there any other metrics we could use?
