With primary season finally coming to a close, and a democratic nomination finally on the horizon, a question comes to mind. All I keep hearing is how Clinton has a majority of blue collar workers, and Obama owns the "college-educated" vote. Sometimes I wonder if this correlation has been overemphasized.
If you were an undecided voter, and you kept hearing about the "educated" voters choosing Obama over Clinton, what preconception would you hold? Maybe you'd want to join this league of elite and intelligent people, who must know something great about Obama that you don't. At the very least, if you "choose" Obama then you must have more in common with these college educated voters and be smart yourself.
I'm sure this has no actual bearing on the outcomes of the elections, but I feel that the intelligent college educated bandwagon crowd is probably bigger than whatever the opposite would be -- perhaps some sort of...proud to be a child of or be one of the blue collar working class group of people? It's possible.
