Do you think people without a college degree should be allowed to vote in political elections?

I don't think so. I've noticed uneducated people are unaware of issues and just listen to everything the media feeds us. Uneducated people are the reason why presidents like Obama, Bush, Clinton and Carter were elected. They don't care about issues, they just care about what the new tells them, and what the candidates talk like. I hate them. I think you should at least have a Bachelor's degree to vote. People with a Master's should be allowed to vote five times and people with a PhD should be allowed to vote ten times.

  • Yes, let those uneducated idiots vote
    81% (17)100% (12)88% (29)Vote
  • No, only well-educated and smart people should vote
    19% (4)0% (0)12% (4)Vote

  • Nice troll job. Are you serious? Surely not.

    First of all, if you DID go to college, you would know that not everyone that attends or gets a degree is wither smart or well informed.

    Secondly, most teachers/professors have their own political leanings (like most people do) - and they directly (and indirectly) pass those on to the students.

    People that CHOOSE to educate themselves on the issues, and do so while thinking INDEPENDENTLY, are the "smart" ones. Calling people "uneducated idiots" is a VERY ignorant thing to say.

  • I've noticed that people with a higher education tend to only focus on the issues that they deem important. There are plenty of very smart people that don't have a college education but you sir are not one of them and spend your time uselessly trolling just to get a reaction from people you don't know. How lame :-)

    • Yes it does.

    • It really doesn't. I know many wise people who don't have degrees. What even is 'intelligence' anyway? It's such an abstract concept and there is no true way of quantifying it. But whatever, you're clearly trolling and probably won't take in anything I'm saying to you.

  • Wow, this... question really boils my blood. Good job, troll.

    To answer your question: of course those without a degree should vote. They are not stupid. Not everyone can afford college, not everyone has time for college, not everyone has the opportunity for college.
    Having a degree doesn't mean anything special except that you're certified to do this/that, but it doesn't mean you're smarter or better.

    Get over yourself, troll.

    • So if you think I'm a troll, than why did you say it boiled your blood? That proves right there you know I'm not a troll.

  • People without college degrees should be able to vote. Our nation is supposed to be of the people, for the people, and by the people. If only college graduates were allowed to vote then we'd be ignoring a large portion of people. Everyone should be able to make their choice. They have to live in this country too. People with a Masters or PhD should not be able to vote multiple times. Just because someone is a college graduate doesn't mean they're any smarter than anyone else. Just because someone didn't graduate college doesn't mean that they're uneducated.

  • Just because someone has a college degree doesn't necessarily mean they are politically educated though or more intelligent that those who don't, and just because someone doesn't have one does not make them uneducated and stupid. In this economy going to college is more of a luxury than anything else, not everyone can afford to go, especially in a country like the US where education is very costly.

    • It means they're smart.

    • It means they were fortunate enough to have had the means to actually afford an education. Plus, college is not for everyone. Just because someone does not have a degree does not mean they should be stripped of their civil rights. That's a very close minded thing to say. Academic achievement does not reflect someone's intelligence. Although, I believe people should become politically educated before voting, but that is regardless of your educational background.

  • That would mean everyone would have to have a BA in political science. People with Masters and PHDs would be involved in a process called gerrymandering. This would mean that the minority would control who gets into power and that is not democracy. Yes democracy is flawed since there will always be people that will vote for a candidate that has nice hair, or a pretty smile but that is the minority.

    I don't know about the US but in Canada only about 30% of the population votes since most people just don't care or feel their vote has no influence on the outcome. Imagine how many people would vote if they matched your criteria. I will vote in the Canadian federal election, for who I don't know yet. Just because I don't have a degree in political science, doesn't mean I won't do the research on a candidate's policies and how they will effect me.

    • Women are smarter than men.

    • Oh please you really expect me to argue with you now stupid troll?

  • Nope, although I can understand what you mean. The problem is however, you want the entire population to vote, so every social and economical "class". If you only let people with a higher degree vote (which often have a higher salary as well), the voting will not be beneficial to people from other groups, since people have the tendency to vote only for things that benefit them, no matter how highly educated they are. So it will result in votes which only benefit the "richer" and "more educated" instead of equally benefiting all (which is the goal, not always the outcome however).

  • While I see your point, I don't think education determines one's intelligence completely.. Some well-schooled people fall for the media garbage as well, ande many people who don't have fancy degrees truly think for themselves. It may seem like a good idea to you, but I think it's too close-minded.

      He was even intelligent enough to recognize the limits to the value of intelligence, something very few intelligent people are able to do.
