Clinton vs Sanders Primary results sorted by states’ IQ

I was wondering if there was any correlation between a state’s average IQ and how they voted. So I took the results from the McDaniel’s Estimated Average IQ Score and made a chart showing the states in order from smartest to… least smartest, listing the percentage differential in the democratic primary race between Clinton and Sanders.

I entered all the data by hand so let me know if you see any mistakes. You can hover over the results bar to see each candidate’s score.

Dark blue is where Sanders won, and light blue is where Clinton won.
