Bless its heart, I don’t believe Hotline’s numbers for a second. For example, look at the SAT figures for Alabama (37) and Mississippi (33) next to those of Georgia (6), Florida (4), and South Carolina (3) – whatever these numbers mean, which isn’t at all clear.
Alabama (and I don’t say this just because I’m from Georgia) does far better than any New England state? Fat chance. Something’s screwy.
