correlating belief in UFOs visiting earth to US political party

from hunch data… believing in ufo's (specifically, answering "Yes" to "Do you believe in UFOs or alien visits to Earth?") tends to skew toward conservative parties.  It's kind of hilarious that the marijuana party is #2.  (Note taht number on right is correlation – notice that lower ones are negative correlations).
