How Obama Got Elected

Via Ace of Spades:

Rank ignorance. They don't know which party controls Congress, and never heard of Reid, Frank, or Pelosi, but damn, do they know the media-approved misinformation that Palin wore a $150,000 wardrobe.



Here's a question for Howie Kurtz

Where do people get their information?

If people don’t know which party is in control of Congress, who is to blame?

If people are totally unaware of congressional leaders who is to blame?

The media will attribute the ignorance to the audience.

But why is it that those same people know about Palin’s wardrobe and pregnant daughter?

Why is it that those same people think that Sarah Palin said she can see Russia from her house?

Why don’t those same people know that Obama claimed to have campaigned in 57 states?

But why is it that those same people know about Palin’s wardrobe and pregnant daughter?

Why don’t those people know that Obama won his first election by getting his opponents kicked off the ballot? (They guessed McCain).

But why is it that those same people know about Palin’s wardrobe and pregnant daughter?

Why don’t those people know who said the Obama would be tested by an international crisis if he was elected?

But why is it that those same people know about Palin’s wardrobe and pregnant daughter?

Why don’t these people know that Obama said his policies would bankrupt the coal industry and make energy prices skyrocket?

But why is it that those same people know about Palin’s wardrobe and pregnant daughter?

Good job MSM. How's this for a new slogan: "Ignorance is our most important product."

UPDATE: John Ziegler, who produced the video and commissioned the Zogby poll has a website.
and has the video website "How Obama Got Elected."

UPDATE2: the Zogby Poll

The 12-question, multiple-choice survey found questions regarding statements linked to Republican presidential candidate John McCain and his vice-presidential running-mate Sarah Palin were far more likely to be answered correctly by Obama voters than questions about statements associated with Obama and Vice-President–Elect Joe Biden. The telephone survey of 512 Obama voters nationwide was conducted Nov. 13-15, 2008, and carries a margin of error of +/- 4.4 percentage points. The survey was commissioned by John Ziegler, author of The Death of Free Speech, producer of the recently released film "Blocking the Path to 9/11" and producer of the upcoming documentary film, Media Malpractice...How Obama Got Elected.

"After I interviewed Obama voters on Election Day for my documentary, I had a pretty low opinion of what most of them had picked up from the media coverage of the campaign, but this poll really proves beyond any doubt the stunning level of malpractice on the part of the media in not educating the Obama portion of the voting populace," said Ziegler.

Obama voters did not fare nearly as well overall when asked to answer questions about statements or stories associated with Obama or Biden -- 83% failed to correctly answer that Obama had won his first election by getting all of his opponents removed from the ballot, and 88% did not correctly associate Obama with his statement that his energy policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry. Most (56%) were also not able to correctly answer that Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground.


Zogby is getting criticized for the poll, responds:
"We stand by the results our survey work on behalf of John Ziegler, as we stand by all of our work. We reject the notion that this was a push poll because it very simply wasn't. It was a legitimate effort to test the knowledge of voters who cast ballots for Barack Obama in the Nov. 4 election. Push polls are a malicious effort to sway public opinion one way or the other, while message and knowledge testing is quite another effort of public opinion research that is legitimate inquiry and has value in the public square. In this case, the respondents were given a full range of responses and were not pressured or influenced to respond in one way or another. This poll was not designed to hurt anyone, which is obvious as it was conducted after the election. The client is free to draw his own conclusions about the research, as are bloggers and other members of society. But Zogby International is a neutral party in this matter. We were hired to test public opinion on a particular subject and with no ax to grind, that's exactly what we did. We don't have to agree or disagree with the questions, we simply ask them and provide the client with a fair and accurate set of data reflecting public opinion." - John Zogby
