Vanderbilt University in Nashville recently conducted a poll that measured, amongst other things, the Tennessee Public's negative feelings about "Common Core." Most respondents identified themselves as Republicans. Fully, 46 percent of those polled had negative feelings about "Common Core." When the same people were asked if there should be national education standards for high school students, only 34 percent disapproved. According to Vanderbilt, the two questions were posed in such a way that both guestions addressed the same issue. The only difference was that the term "Common Core" received a much higher disapproval rate while the guestion content was the same. Recently Professor Jonathan Gruber of MIT started a firestorm of critical comments when he referred to "Voter Stupidity." Since the majority of respondents in the Vanderbilt Poll identified themselves as Republicans, we can only surmise that these Republican voters were uninformed, easily manipulated, and stupid. Looks like Jonathan Gruber hit the nail on the head!
