Survey finds most voters are badly misinformed about well known policy topics

A knowledge survey asked voters about 24 popular policy topics. A majority of voters had the wrong answers. The “conventional wisdom”, it turns out, is often wrong.

This survey measured voters’ knowledge – rather than measuring their opinion. As our blog has noted previously, an opinion poll is a measure of the effectiveness of prior propaganda messaging. Consequently, setting policy based on opinion polling is turning policy making over to the most effective propagandist.

A survey that measures one’s knowledge is different than an opinion poll and tells us whether those being polled understand the issues – or not. Most voters, it seems, do not understand the issues – but often hold strong opinions not based in facts.

Ignorance on important policy topics is widespread and possibly the result of widespread propaganda messaging operations.
