Educational IQ isn't everything. I've worked with some remarkable people who were incredibly emotionally intelligent, had amazing practical skills, or just a hefty dose of good old-fashioned common sense.
What is "Educational IQ", I have not heard that term before? I agree there are many other skills.

Problem is many political topics are complex so being of high intelligence helps to understand them. The temptation for politicians is too dumb down complex topics to reach a wider audience and then there is a further temptation to add bias to increase popularity.

Like, for example, Trump's claim that a physical Democratic national party server is hidden in Ukraine.
