    Dear EDM,
    Is there any research available about the voting habits of the science community? I hear all the time how the Republicans make statements about the falsehood of global warming and the need to teach creationism. You would think that the science community would be an expanding bloc in which Democrats could make gains. Is that accurate? Thank you for your informative site.
