Pew Poll on Knowledge of Public Affairs
Click on image to view
A typically fascinating poll was released by the Pew Center over the weekend, this one covering knowledge of public affairs. An interesting result is Daily Show viewers are far more knowledgeable of pubic affairs than are viewers of, oh say, FOX. Everyone surprised by that can stop reading now.
Some demographic differences are understandable - more educated people are more informed, as are richer folks. Older people are generally more informed than younger people. I didn't know how much more men consume news than women, though.
I'm not surprised that Northerners are more informed than Southerners.
Here's the analysis.
Here's the questionnaire.
Take the quiz.
