Do they think the scientifically trained will remain or become religious and conservative?

Not sure there's a study to your point, sounds more like an opinion.

They think people with jobs will be. When you create a tax payer you are more likely to create a Republican.

Just look at how Obama did vs Romney when it came to educated voters

Obama won voters without a High School Degree 64% to 35%
Romney won voters with only a High School Degree 51-48
Romney won voters with a college degree 51-47

Educated voters lean GOP, but not by much. However, non-educated voters go heavily Democrat.
