    While not crazy about the source, the questions are generic enough.

    Even the indies are more savvy than the dems.......Not at all surprising.

    It comes from Pew Research, which is a very good polling firm.

    Was talking about the Weakly Standard being the shaky source.

    Still, I'd bet that the results from Pew won't be reported anywhere in the traditional MSM.

    Pew polls are rarely reported in the MSM. See: My two polls from Pew I've posted here.

    Those two were about Atheism and Scientists political leanings.

    These numbers likely switch, people tend to learn more about what they don't like than what they do and with the current administration it doesn't surprise me that Republicans scored higher this time around. ;)

    The fact that anyone missed the majority of those questions on either sides is pathetic. Though considering some of the polls I've seen and their numbers, it's not surprising.

    Hence the fear of the tea parties. Politicians thrive on an ignorant constituency and they were left unaccountable for far too long,I guess we can say BHO accomplished something.

    There are plenty of ignorant people in the tea parties. The only reason I would fear the tea parties if I were Barack Obama is that one of them may try to carry out the whole "water the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants" sign they carry.

    Obammy shouldn't be alone in that fear....All the tyrants should be very afraid.
