How Obama Got Elected

And because 12 live interviews doesn't constitute scientific evidence, here is the Zogby poll to backup the documentary:

512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points

97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates

Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)

81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)

82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)

88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)

56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

And yet.....

Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her "house," even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we "gave" one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)

Nah... the media and the movies have NO IMPACT AT ALL about coercing public opinion. Just like Joe Camel had no affect either. Control the media, control public opinion. Don't need to live in Cuba or China to figure that one out. Air what you want the masses to hear, and deliberately leave out what you don't want them to know.

Damn, the silence from the left is deafening...

...I guess their indoctrination studies of authorized DNC material are getting the best of them. They are probably thinking that video doesn't exist.

I guess we're going to ignore this like Obama is ignoring Berg. Perfectly ok to ignore crackpots and voters alike.

I'd like to see a similar survey of GOP voters, with questions like "What's Obama's religion?"

Ya'll still lost. Get over it.
