If you peruse many academic Civil War and history related blogs and sites, you will soon be exposed to the narrative that the "educated" and "enlightened" ones in America are more "tolerant", "open-minded", etc., etc. than anyone to the right of Karl Marx. Their lockstep conformity on that false narrative is stunning. But if you read many of these folks' posts (as well as the comments that often follow), you soon discover this notion is quite far from the truth. Wikileaks has recently blown that narrative all to h*** and now Pew Research confirms the same:
“Clinton backers – particularly highly educated ones – have more difficulty respecting Trump supporters than the other way around,” Pew acknowledged in the Nov. 1 report.The article discussing this Pew report is quite interesting.
