"A majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (58%) now say that colleges and universities have a negative effect on the country, up from 45% last year. By contrast, most Democrats and Democratic leaners (72%) say colleges and universities have a positive effect, which is little changed from recent years."George W. Bush went to Yale and Harvard. Mitt Romney? Harvard. For fuck's sake, even Cheeto Hitler went to Penn. Not just four year degrees, but four year and graduate Ivy degrees.
As others have noted, this major shift has happened within the past two years.
America is truly in a race to the bottom, and 35 percent of the country is actively cheering on our collapse into a third-world plutocracy.
