Hidden Prejudice... Of The Political Kind

Perhaps you have heard of Project Implicit. It is a Virginia-connected research operation that’s been making huge strides uncovering bias and prejudice. (Often of the type that most of us never knew we had.) 

Now, Project Implicit is out with a new study.

This one reveals that those who call themselves “political independents” often have biases they have been hiding from themselves.
