Maybe all these smart people are right and I'm wrong. But I think it's more that they hope something can work that can't. It is like we are building this giant boat that has a lot on it for everybody and can do everything a boat should do and more, except float. --TS

It's not a question of smarts--they're simply voting their perceived self-interest, like everyone else. Academics are a constituency, like Hispanics or farmers or soccer moms, and they quite accurately saw Obama as more likely than Romney to preserve their perks and subsidies.
