The 6% figure comes from a 2009 Pew Research Center report. It contrasts with 23% of the public identifying as Republican. 35% of the public and 55% of scientists were Democrats.

Only 9% of scientists identified as conservative; 52% as liberal.

Coverage at HuffPost (updated 2013), plus a slideshow of ten "Politicians' Science Gaffes" (all Republicans): http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/07/10/only-six-percent-of-scien_...

Anyone know who created this? I've found it, unattributed, in a few places on the web. Maybe someone has better google-fu....
