Found this article today. It supports my assertion (in a couple of other threads) that there is a statistically significant negative link between intelligence and conservatism. Gordon Hodson and Michael A. Busseri, "Bright Minds and Dark Attitudes : Lower Cognitive Ability Predicts Greater Prejudice Through Right-Wing Ideologies" in Psychological Science. 23.2 (Feb 2012): 187-195. I never believe headline claims, so I read the article in full, and it checks out. What it's saying is that whilst there is a clear correlation between low intelligence and prejudice, the strongest correlation is between low intelligence and social conservatism. If you take out that association, the direct correlation is much weaker. So, low-int people are more drawn to conservatism than prejudice, per se. I'd be happy to share the material, except that it's under copyright. PM if you are unable to acquire this material any other way. For those of us involved in the discussion in the other threads, I'd say it challenges the idea (cyclopath's for example) that social conservatives are "undereducated" and supports my view that there are some very basic and core inabilities to reason and think in a complex way.
