In the spirit of the 2004 IQ hoax, states are color-coded according to how their white electorates voted in 2012. Due to insufficient exit polling data in the less competitive states, it's not possible to accurately ascertain the margins of victories among whites at the state level, so red (blue) indicates a simple Romney (Obama) win. Connecticut split evenly, 49%-49%:
|1. District of Columbia||108.0|
|3. New Jersey||103.5|
|12. New Hampshire||101.4|
|13. New York||101.3|
|19. North Carolina||100.9|
|20. Rhode Island||100.9|
|27. South Dakota||100.3|
|32. North Dakota||100.1|
|36. South Carolina||99.8|
|40. New Mexico||99.5|
|51. West Virginia||95.1|
For the uninitiated who feel as though they're seeing an awful lot of red in the preceding table and presume I'm in error giving vermilion hues to the likes of California, Illinois, and New Jersey, please do see here.
A map of the same. The darker a state's shading, the higher its IQ:
Texas outperforms expectations. Is it something miraculous or is something awry? Whatever the case, the state is going to sink under the weight of its increasing diversity load so that even if each of its ethnic groups continue to outperform the expectations of their respective groups, the state as a whole is going to slip into the bottom third of states in the next decade or so.
Notice that the estimates show a mean IQ value above 100 (100.7 to be precise). It's an artifact of my presumption that the national average for the US is 98, the figure given in IQ and the Wealth of Nations, published in 2002 (with national estimates based on data obviously older than that). As the US steadily becomes less white, the national average will correspondingly decline. That should already be the case in 2015, and it's detectable here. Working backwards, I'd peg the contemporary US average at 97.
