New Poll- McCain Voters and Fox News Viewers Most Informed

John Ziegler is at it again. The man who brought us the ten minute video "How Obama got elected" featuring 12 Obama Voters that were misinformed by the MSM, and subsequently was viewed by over 1.6 Million people on Youtube. Due to the overwhelming response and the Public Outcry from the Obama followers, Zeigler has run another poll, this time asking questions of both McCain and Obama supporters. The results confirmed what most of us already knew, McCain Voters were significantly more informed than Obama Voters. But the poll is not designed to make Obama voters look stupid, the purpose was to be an Indictment of the Media for their Negligence in informing the Public. The second study also offered some interesting results about Where the informed get their Information.
Those “exposed” to Fox News voted 70-29 for McCain.

Those “exposed” to CNN voted 63-37 for Obama.

Those “exposed” to MSNBC voted 73-26 for Obama.

Those “exposed” to network newscasts voted 62-37 for Obama.

Those “exposed” to national newspapers voted 64-36 for Obama.

Those “exposed” to talk radio voted 61-38 for McCain.
Ziegler was on Hannity Colmes earlier this week:

Some of the highlights:
35 % of McCain voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.

18% of Obama voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.

McCain voters knew which party controls congress by a 63-27 margin.

Obama voters got the “congressional control” question wrong by 43-41.

Those that got "congressional control" correct voted 56-43 for McCain.

Those that got "congressional control" wrong voted 65-35 for Obama.
One of the other more interesting tidbits from this survey is that only 48% of CNN Viewers surveyed got the "congressional control" question correct. They had a 50-50 chance just by guessing. Yet, CNN is still considered a viable source of "news" by some Americans.

Maybe Ziegler's effort will change that.

This poll is very informative. I bet the dems try even harder to get the Fairness Document reinstated.

Jason- You might be right. Now they know we're actually learning something from "Our" news...They can't have that...

I'm never going to be happy until at least 70% of the voting population knows which party controls Congress at the time of a national election.

Some Leftist friends accuse me of elitism for this, but I don't understand why anyone would vote in the first place if they couldn't even bother to know who controlled Congress.

Biased Girl said...

It is disappointing that so many people had no idea who controlled congress. I don't even know how that happen.

If it makes you feel any better, my friends make fun of me for suggesting there should be a short quiz prior to the Voting process. If you fail the Quiz, you don't get to Vote.

Here is a link to John Ziegler being interviewed by leftist, liberal pollster, Nate Silver.

In short, Silver calls this a "push poll". It is obvious from his questions to John that he is a blatant Obama supporter.
