Noble lies are still lies

A US poll on COVID vaccination refusers gives the interesting result that the proportion of refusers is high in the least-educated classes, but highest amongst those at PhD level. It is, of course, rather tempting to identify the lower refusal rate amongst the moderately educated with what some would call “midwits,” but the real significance, it seems to me, is how those educated and interested enough to research the issue are discovering something suspicious. That seems to accord with experience of many I’ve encountered here on The Hump and elsewhere.
