Al Jazeera: Obama Misconceptions

I thought the poll conducted with the 12 most intelligent Obama supporters was an interesting video. It seemed to me that the goal was to bash Obama supporters and make it seem as if his popularity was based on his personality rather than his politics. It reminded me of this video that Al Jazeera put together from a McCain-Palin rally. This type of journalism almost always misrepresents the majority of voters and contains quite a bit of partisan bias. I tend to watch them for the absurdity of the answers, and they always fail to convince me that the entire party is stupid. With that said, it frightens me to think that even a few Americans vote with no knowledge of the candidates and sometimes with false information. I always wonder which party contains more of these misinformed voters. We can only hope that it is equal to even the votes out.
