Hi, what are you looking for?

Third Base Politics


You can shut up now.

You may remember this from a few weeks ago…

If you shared that with your Obama voting friends you probably got the same reaction as I did.

“Whatever, I could find you just as many dumb McCain voters.”

“So what, if they had polled McCain voters it would be the same result.”

“:insert your favorite deflective and defensive quote here:”

Welllll….it turns out they DID decide to poll McCain voters using the same questions and same sample size. Some 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.

So at the end of the day we may be losers…but at least we’re not idiots.
