These are the people that elected Obama

This is very important to consider.  The point isn’t just finding people who were woefully uninformed.  That would be like shooting fish in a barrel and could be done with voters from either party. 

It was that they were completely uninformed about Obama, Reid, Pelosi, etc. while they knew lots about Sarah Palin – and generally not the truth, but rather the falsehoods and exaggerations communicated by the mainstream media.

Also, when asked questions about negative things (Obama and the 57 states, Bill Ayers, Biden and plagiarism, Obama and bankrupting the coal industry, etc.) they almost always attributed them to McCain or Palin.  The 18-to-1 bias against Palin by the Big 3 obviously had a big impact. 

The people interviewed were generally wrong across the board:

  • Ignorance of basic facts such as which party currently controls Congress
  • Believing lies about Republicans
  • Unaware of the truth about Obama / Biden

It was an ugly but very successful hat trick for the media.

See some statistics here, such as how 86.9 % of those polled thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though came from Tina Fey, while “81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing).”

It is funny and painful.  Watch it all.

P.S. Is it me, or is the Obama song really, really creepy?

  1. This video is getting a lot of play. Too bad it didn’t get more before the election. But then, with only Fox willing to show it, it wouldn’t have done much good. One girl gets props for admitting she’s not as informed as she should be, but unfortunately, it ain’t enough to change her vote.

    As you may or may not be aware, I have been opining on this issue on both of my blogs. I have felt this way from well before the election as I asked people why they were supporting this guy. Even when they said they didn’t want a third Bush term via McCain, they couldn’t say with specifics, why they didn’t like Bush. They’d just parrot the Dem talking points. It’s a sad day for Democracy when so many take so little time to make themselves aware before doing the most important task a citizen is supposed to do.

  2. I saw that on Michelle Malkin (I think??) this morning. Wow. Just wow.

    What shocks me is not just that they are uninformed about things across the board (which is fine), but everyone seems to know insubstantial and irrelevant things about Sarah Palin (i.e. the “Russia” b.s., $150,000 on clothes, etc), while remaining totally ignorant about larger policy issues.

    I spoke with a liberal who has, sadly, lived in the echo chamber her entire life. She was unaware of some of Sarah Palin’s basic accomplishments: ousting her own party, working with Canada to get a pipeline to the lower 48, America’s most popular governor, etc. If the media were even remotely unbiased, it wouldn’t have been a contest.

    What really upsets me is that the media now knows that this works. Lie all you want, and you’ll get your man into the White House. Sick, sick, sick.

  3. I love this blog!
    You are so right about the Obama
    voters, very insightful.

    The way Sarah Palin has
    been abused by the media, by
    Hollywood, and by the Democratic
    party is a crime.

    The Barack Obama Song!
    .

    Sung to the tune of
    “That’s Entertainment!”
    .

    Tax –
    We just can’t pay enough
    And the facts –
    We don’t hear for the fluff
    Just relax –
    Give the poor all your stuff!
    .

    That’s Barack – tainment!
    .

    Cash –
    Uncle Sam wants it all
    Hear the crash –
    As the stock market falls
    In a flash –
    Your tax bill will grow tall!
    .

    That’s Barack – tainment!
    .

    Lazy bums
    Will leave you crumbs
    So we all have the same,
    .

    It’s only fair
    That we all share
    What work made you gain,
    If you complain
    You’re insane,
    .

    Give all to the needy –
    Or are you just greedy!
    .

    Poor –
    We must all be that way
    To have more –
    Is a sin so they say
    Just ignore –
    The Constitution and pray,
    .

    You still have a job,
    To pay lazy slobs
    .

    That’s Barack – tainment!

  4. The Worst Crime Of 2008:
    The Year It Became
    Fashionable To
    Bash Women!

    by Rash Manly

    Sexism against
    women is the new black.

    Women have made countless
    strides forward since the 19th
    century,
    advances too numerous
    to mention here.

    The 20th century was when
    women finally got the respect
    they were so long denied.

    Who would have ever
    guessed in the 21st Century
    so much progress would
    be stolen away!

    The thieves were the very
    Liberals who claim to be
    all about the rights of
    women.

    The three headed monster
    behind this travesty of justice
    committed their crime for
    everyone to witness,
    yet few dared speak up.

    One of the terrible trio
    is Hollywood Liberals.

    The second is the
    Mainstream Media.

    The third is the
    Democratic Party.

    The first victim is the
    housewife and Governor
    of Alaska,
    Sarah Palin.

    When this lady dared to
    run for Vice President,
    the sexist three headed
    monster roared out from
    under the rock it had been
    hiding under and attacked
    this wife and mother with
    every weapon it could lay
    it’s claws on.

    Sarah Palin’s reputation
    was dragged through the
    mud by television networks,
    newspapers and magazines,
    many blogs on the internet,
    and most of the nattering
    nabobs of the Hollywood
    Liberal Left.

    This gang of three took
    great delight in smashing
    this female and her family
    with every insult and lie,
    invented scandal and
    smear tactic ever invented
    and a few new ones.

    Rather than debate Ms.
    Palin on the issues,
    this cowardly pathetic
    gang of bullies slammed
    and slandered her
    in the back and
    below the belt,
    in an effort to
    destroy her.

    Both male and female
    so called Liberals
    displayed their contempt
    for strong women in
    their savage unrelenting
    attacks.

    2008 was the year for
    open season on women,
    and Palin Hunting was
    the grand sporting event
    of the Un-Liberal Left.

    The bloodlust
    became so intoxicating,
    wife and mother Cindy
    McCain also came into
    Liberal crosshairs.

    The message was clear:
    women were fair game
    in the 21st Century,
    as decreed by the three
    headed monster.

    Women’s Rights
    became outlawed
    by the Left.

  5. Hi Theobromophile,

    “ousting her own party, working with Canada to get a pipeline to the lower 48, America’s most popular governor”

    Can you imagine if the media would have trumpeted those things in an 18-to-1 ratio instead of the opposite (not to mention that their points were usually distorted?).

  6. What’s the point? Obama won this election because America hates Bush. This campaign has been largely about finger pointing rather than the mess we are in.

    Obama isn’t a saint, he isn’t some (black) knight in shinning armor riding in to save the day and has even said that himself. We gotta let this go and focus on telling the Big 3 to shove it where the sun don’t shine!

    Obama is a crook just like the rest of them, no different than Pelosi, Biden, the Clintons, and every other corrupt Democrat. You can’t get to the top without breaking the rules..period!

  8. I was upset that I couldn’t vote straight democrat. Tina Fey had me LOL as Sarah Palin. I can’t wait for her to run for president . I won’t vote for but Saturday Night Live will be funny again. I have to admit I didn’t really research the issues. I had been a Hillary supported and got uninterested when she lost. I think Obama was the lesser of two evils. I will say this Neil the republican won Texas and you did a good supporting our party.

  9. Neil, I actually didn’t know Biden quit a former campaign due to plagarism. I knew about his plagarism and that he denied it. Otherwise, none of the people surprised me. It would actually be a surprise to find an informed Obama voter. Communist party members, perhaps?

    Come to think of it, I don’t know which would be worse: The ignorant Obama voter or the (hypothetical) informed one. If a person is actually informed of The Messiah’s wickedness and still votes for Him, perhaps that is worse?
