Poll: Few Obama Supporters Familiar With Candidate's Statements
The results of a new survey published Tuesday showed that just 2 percent of voters who supported Barack Obama obtained perfect or near-perfect scores on a post election test which gauged their knowledge of statements and scandals associated with the presidential tickets during the campaign.
The survey, conducted by Zogby International for 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, "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," Zogby reported.
Ziegler blamed biased media coverage in favor of Obama his supporters' lack of information.
"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," he said.
Nearly three of four voters polled could identify the negative aspects of the McCain-Palin campaign, but few could identify any negative issues associated with Obama-Biden, the survey found.
