Do Ph.D.s vote differently from MBAs? We surveyed PayScale's users about their education level and voting preference to find out.

MBAs and MDs show strong support for Governor Romney. He also wins with those who have an associate's degree. Meanwhile, we found those who hold bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, JDs and PhDs have a lot of love for Obama. The incumbent also wins with the GED/high school diploma set.
