The less likely you are to know where Ukraine is, the more likely you are to want to bomb it

So this is fascinating, cutting across all political stripes, Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Conservative, whatever.
.
A group of political scientist did a study of where people thought Ukraine was.  About 16% could get pretty darn close (on the map below the red dots are close, the more purple, the farther away they are).
.
But what was even more fascinating to me, the more wrong you are, the more likely you are to support military intervention.  Probably because one you know it borders Russia, that is kidn of a red flag.

I don't know, I thought it was humorous.  (via Washington Post)
