How Obama Got Elected by American Elephant

A new Zogby poll confirms what many of us knew: Obama won the election because of uninformed, misinformed and ignorant supporters.

A documentary, “Media Malpractice…How Obama Got Elected,” addressing the “mainstream” news media’s complicity in keeping voters ignorant and misinformed is in the works. In this preview, the film-maker interviews 12 Obama supporters, randomly selected by another Obama supporter. The results would be funny if they weren’t so frightening:

According to the Zogby poll, a whopping 57.4% of Obama supporters believe erroneously that Republicans are currently in control of congress. The most unpopular congress ever, for good reason, and well over half of Obama voters are exactly wrong about who is controlling it.

And so Obama supporters give even more power to the party that has presided over our current economic collapse. Its not a surprise, but it doesn’t make it any less depressing.

Other results from the poll:

81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)

82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)

88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)

56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

And yet…..

Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we “gave” one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)
