"Some Doubts" About Science?

AOSHQ notes a new study.

Fewer than 35 percent of conservatives say they have a "great deal" of trust in the scientific community now--quoting Yahoo News/Blog

Could there be a reason for this?  Or is it mindless moronism of "conservatives"?

During a decade as head of global cancer research at Amgen, C. Glenn Begley identified 53 "landmark" publications - papers in top journals, from reputable labs - for his team to reproduce. Begley sought to double-check the findings before trying to build on them for drug development.

Result: 47 of the 53 could not be replicated --quoting Yahoo News
