How Obama Got Elected has produced a video of voters taken on election day, in which various voters are asked questions about the candidates.

On Election day twelve Obama voters were interviewed extensively right after they voted to learn how the news media impacted their knowledge of what occurred during the campaign. These voters were chosen for their apparent intelligence/verbal abilities and willingness to express their opinions to a large audience. The rather shocking video below seeks to provide some insight into which information broke through the news media clutter and which did not.

The video would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic and scary. To be fair, there’s no way of knowing if he really interviewed 120 and picked the 12 that best made the point he was trying to express. He did have Zogby perform a poll that seems to have confirmed his results. He also didn’t ask similar questions of McCain supporters, so we don’t know if they’re by and large equally uninformed. To find out for yourself: ask random people you run into these questions.
