Wow, what a surprise.  People who watch Fox News almost daily are significantly more likely to be misinformed on issues than those who never watch it.  Here’s how Fox News viewers responded to some basic questions:

– Most economists estimate the stimulus caused job losses (12 points more likely) (91 percent of those who watch Fox News “almost every day”)

– Most economists have estimated the health care law will worsen the deficit (31 points) (72 percent)

– The economy is getting worse (26 points) (72 percent)

– Most scientists do not agree that climate change is occurring (30 points) (60 percent)

– The stimulus legislation did not include any tax cuts (14 points) (63 percent)

Their own income taxes have gone up (14 points) (49 percent)

The auto bailout only occurred under Obama (13 points) (56 percent)

– When TARP came up for a vote most Republicans opposed it (12 points) (38 percent)

– And that it is not clear that Obama was born in the United States (31 points)(63 percent)

I am starting to truly understand what the ignorant sheeple who watch Fox News see in Sarah Palin: cocksure, prideful ignorance that all of them can be proud of.
