Not really a surprise to anyone Im sure...
A new documentary demonstrates how uninformed some Barack Obama voters are about American politics and the recent presidential campaign.
Documentary filmmaker John Ziegler interviewed a dozen Obama voters as they left the polls on Election Day "to see what they learned from the media coverage of the campaign." Ziegler says the twelve "were chosen for their apparent intelligence/verbal abilities and willingness to express their opinions to a large audience."
He has posted a video of the interviews on the website HowObamaGotElected.com. Here is a small portion what the Obama voters had to say when asked some basic political questions.
Ziegler: Which party currently controls Congress?
Adarsha (Obama voter): Currently? Like - I don't know, actually.
Melinda (Obama voter): The Republicans.
Nick (Obama voter): Uh, Republicans.
Ronald (Obama voter): Republicans.
Ziegler: Republicans control Congress?
Ronald: Yes. Yes.
Janan (Obama voter): Probably Republican because the president's Republican. That's my honest answer.
Ziegler: Do you know who Barney Frank is?
Amber (Obama voter): Um, no."
Ziegler: How about Nancy Pelosi?
Ziegler: How about Harry Reid?
Amber: I've heard that name but I don't know who that is."
Ziegler: What do you think of Barney Frank?
Adarsha: "I have no idea who that is."
Although nearly all of the Obama voters interviewed did not know who the Democratic leaders of the House and Senate were, they did know that the Republican Party spent $150,000 on Sarah Palin's wardrobe and also knew that she was the one candidate with a pregnant teenage daughter.
