    There are plenty of videos out there showing equally dumb voters from both sides... what's your point? Bush was voted in... twice. That doesn't speak volumes about the republican voters, now does it?

    [edit]
    The creators of this video are clearly biased. That much is obvious, just from watching it. Nevermind the fact that every single one of the voters they picked were less informed about their own politics than a good many foreigners.

    This is akin to me video taping all the people who claimed Obama was a Muslim, how he was buddies with terrorists, or how he's the anti-christ and presenting it as a broad generalisation of all republicans. You should know better JC.

    To give a better picture, ya'll should read how Ziegler defends his documentary and the poll as well as how Nate Silver debunks his positions.

    Apathy runs rampant in this country despite election numbers. Both parties rallied people and used all means necessary.

    IMO, I don't think the media had much to do with it when you look at the big picture.

    You know I can't decide which is better having likely corrupted electoral college vote for me or have the SNL and John Stewart educated moron public vote. HOLY CRAP!!!!

    While I have no doubt that most voters regardless of who they votd for are represented I am still amazed. I never thought I was the best educated on politics, but WOW that makes a 5th grader look like a political strategist.

    It's also one sided. You don't think for one minute, that the same type of video couldn't be make to look like the press was right leaning? Or did you watch enough of that vid to construct that it wasn't about dumb people but about bias?

    As to the electoral vote, Rocket, you can't have your cake and eat it too.
