Media uneducated when it comes to Analyzing polls

The polls only indicate whether someone has more formal education (via some college or a college degree.) Please remember formal education is a money making venture backed up by big business. It is not an indicator if you are smart, better educated or talented. Actually the polls should make us question the actual value of a college degree in the United States. Just look at all the “educated” people who analyzed the poll wrong, they equated a college degree with words such as “smarter” and “educated.”
