  •  This is the kind of research... (6+ / 0-)

    ...that makes people think social science is the study of things everyone already knows.

    Rest assured, however, that there are plenty of us social scientists who react to studies like this the same way the diarist did:

    Well...duh!

    •  You know better than that (0+ / 0-)

      I'm a big fan of your writing here, precisely because of your social-science orientation.  I'm disappointed that you would laugh off an entire study because of the top-line findings that the university press office thought might be worth publicizing.  Descriptive work is never published in political science, so obviously there's much more to it, as we'll find out when it hits a journal down the road.

      I don't care about your farm or mafia! Oh wait -- wrong forum.

      •  You know why this kind of work... (0+ / 0-)

        ...is never published in political science journals? Because there's absolutely nothing notable about it. This press release is just an attention grab; there's nothing substantive about it. If there was, they would have publicized something with some substance.
