and probably put in place some kind of IQ test requirement for people running for president so that someone as stupid as Trump can’t run again.

What about an IQ test requirement to allow people to vote? I don’t think that’s the worst idea either.

Do you think that would affect the outcome of elections? Are low-IQ voters shifting the results? I’m sure there are those who think cutting out less intelligent voters would shift election results to the left, but believing you’re smart when you’re not isn’t exclusive to the right.

Besides, it’s my experience that most people overestimate their own intelligence and don’t realize a minimum IQ would exclude them. They take an “IQ test” they found on Facebook and it tells them they’re a genius, after which they like and share a post made by a Russian bot about Hillary and pizzerias or Trump and Nazis.
