More Polling...

Remember the “How Obama Got elected” website I’ve referred to in the past? The site continues to provide updated information including a new ‘Wilson Research Poll’ which duplicated the ‘Zogby Poll’ questions. The results, relatively unchanged, and virtually identical. It’s amazing I love analytics so much since I truly disliked statistics in college.

Maybe it’s like vegetables, the popular opinion is they are yucky, but they are so good for you. And, when you actually research for yourself, not all of them are yucky. I’m assuming there is a “media bias” leading us all to hate vegetables too. Anyway, see results below.

See the video from John Zeigler’s appearance on ‘Hannity & Colmes’.

Wilson Research Poll

The 12 "Zogby Poll" 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 poll also asked voters to name all the media sources from which they got information.

Those “exposed” to Fox News got "congressional control" correct 64-25 (+39)

Those “exposed” to CNN got “congressional control” correct 48-38 (+10)

Those “exposed” to Network news got “congressional control” correct 48-39 (+9)

Those “exposed” to print media got “congressional control” correct 52-37 (+15)

Those “exposed” to MSNBC got “congressional control” correct 55-35 (+20)

Those “exposed” to talk radio got “congressional control” correct 61-29 (+32)

Voters in the "South" had the best response rate on “congressional control” (+22)

Voters in the "Northeast" had the worst response rate on “congressional control” (+9)

Those “exposed” to Fox News voted 70-29 for McCain.

Those “exposed” to CNN voted 63-37 for Obama.

Those “exposed” to MSNBC voted 73-26 for Obama.

Those “exposed” to network newscasts voted 62-37 for Obama.
