Will a majority of Republicans ever learn that science is more reliable than their fantasies?

Asked by wundayatta (58329 points ) November 9th, 2012

Huffington Post reports that Mitt Romney was shellshocked after his loss. It seems he believed internal polls that showed him winning, even though an averaging of polls showed him losing.

Of course, a large number of Republicans seem to disbelieve science, in general. They don’t believe in global warming. They think gays are different from others. They think religion has a place in schools. Well, certain religions, anyway.

Is this built into their belief system in such a way that science can never be convincing to them? Or is this a cultural trend that will change at some point? Why or why not? And if you think it will change, when do you think that will happen?
