All this points to is that conservatives are buying more books... and that more conservatives than non-conservatives and moderates like to continuously reinforce their world views and thinking.

I'd say it also indicates that Republicans in general tend to be better informed/better read than Democrats.

They definitely seem to more interested in politics this year.

So because GOP readers read more "partisan books" then democrats they are better informed? Kind of like how fox news watchers are "better informed" then people that watch no news at all? Oh that right they are less informed. Reading books or watching programs that do not challenge your preconceived ideas does not make you better informed it just pads your ego.

The Democrats themselves acknowledge that Republicans are better informed. Why else would they object to people being required to have ID when they vote?

What is the Democrat's slogan in the South? Don't vote for Republicans cause they'll take away your food stamps.

If its not available on an iphone app then Dems don't pay attention to it. It's been my experience that democrats can't read anything that isn't backlit.
