Stupid is as stupid does

A recent poll done by supposedly non-partisan Program on International Policy Attitudes ("PIPA") suggests that Republicans are more ignorant than Democrats when it comes to foreign policy matters. The guys over at the Volokh Conspiracy effectively address the fallacies inherent in the poll, but they avoid the overall question: Are one party's supporters more ignorant than the other's?

Studies have shown that, when it comes to fiscal matters such as trade, welfare, and taxes, women are more liberal than men and are more likely, therefore, to vote for Democrats. It has also been conclusively demonstrated that, on average, women are more ignorant than men concerning political issues.

So which party is more ignorant? You do the math.
