Big surprise

A (Reagan-loving) social work master’s student at Southern Connecticut State University ran a study encouraging psychiatric outpatients to vote.

When he went back and analyzed his data, he discovered that there’s a direct statistical correlation between how psychotic a person is, and how likely they are to vote for George W Bush.

In the interests of balance I should say that the reverse inference has yet to be demonstrated statistically, and is merely anecdotally true.
