The Wealthiest 1% Have More Education Than The 99%

From Gallup, "U.S. '1%' Is More Republican, but Not More Conservative: Nearly half of wealthiest Americans have postgraduate education" by Lydia Saad:
Advanced Education Separates the 1% From the 99%

Apart from their bank accounts, Gallup finds education to be the greatest difference between the wealthiest 1% of Americans and everyone else. The Gallup analysis reveals that 72% of the wealthiest Americans have a college degree, compared with 31% of those in the lower 99 percentiles. Furthermore, nearly half of those in the wealthiest group have postgraduate education, versus 16% of all others.
