Moderate my eye

A report in TP of a study of how political groups regard science:
TP headlines it as showing that liberals think more of science than do conservatives, but the interesting thing is surely that moderates lost their faith in science earlier and basically flattened out in about 1980.  Conservatives have just taken thirty years to join them.  For half the past thirty-five years it's been liberals and conservatives together against the moderates, and it's only since 1992 that the two ends of the spectrum have really begun to diverge. Not easy to explain.
