New Poll: McCain Voters Knew More About Candidates Than Obama Voters

You might remember that a few weeks ago a video put together by John Zielger at HowObamaGotElected.com came out which set the liberals howling with rage.

The video showed interviews with 12 people who were existing the polls after having voted for Barack Obama. In the video, we sadly see that the Obama voters knew all the media spin on Sarah Palin (none of which was accurate), but new none of the very real detractors about Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

The point Zielger was illustrating wasn't so much the ignorance of the average Obama voter, but that the "mainstream" media had fed Americans a truck-load of propaganda making the McCain-Palin ticket look bad while sanitizing coverage of Obama and Biden of anything negative.

The polling firm Zogby International also released a poll commissioned by Ziegler which found similar results.

Now, as you see in the video below, Ziegler has done what many wounded liberals howled that he should do: check out the McCain voters.

While the knowledge of the average McCain voter was woefully inadequate also...it was still far better than the Obama voters.

Some of the results posted at HowObamaGotElected.com:

Wilson Research Poll

The 12 "Zogby" questions were duplicated, one on the Keating scandal was added for extra balance. The results from Obama voters were virtually IDENTICAL in both polls.

Here are 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.

The results also show more information about the knowledge level of the voters based on what news sources they relied on for information during the election.

Our right to vote is of profound importance and should be exercised with the greatest of responsibility. That means each voter should take the time to learn about the candidates and the issues on both sides in order to cast their vote responsibly.

In aggregate, our vote affects the whole country, along with our safety, welfare, and the moral fiber of our nation. Voting should never be done lightly, casually, or ignorantly. Too much is riding on it.

We'll soon begin finding out what a vote based on profound ignorance has wrought the people of the United States.
