The average republican vote is poorly informed, the average independent voter is worse, the average democrat voter is the most clueless of the three groups.

The website linked to in your OP appears to record the results of similar quizzes several times a year. Your link was to the results of one of their 2010 quizzes (questions asked in January 2010). There have been several quizzes over the nearly 4 year period since then and all the results are archived on the website.

Here for example are the results of how many questions out of 14 each of those groups got correct in the latest and most recent (Sept 2013) version of their quiz...

Republican Voters....6.5

Democrat Voters......6.4

Ind Voters................6.6

You will find these results under the heading "Partisan Differences In Knowledge" at this link...

http://www.people-press.org/2013/09/...ps-and-graphs/

The quiz before that (January 2013) gave the results 8.7, 8.6 and 8.7 out of 13, respectively.

I would have thought that if anyone really wanted to use this site's findings as a guide to which of the three sets of voters are generally most informed they ought to be looking at an average of the results recorded over at least several years.

Of course others might instead choose to simply trawl through each set of quiz results over the past few years until they find one which has results which fit their own pre-determined conclusions (which might or might not transpire be basically correct conclusions if a proper average of results over a reasonable period was ever calculated) and then just post the results of that single quiz as if they were adequate to draw a definitive conclusion.

Good idea ... so I added in the two you found and the results of the combined average was:

Republican voters were the most informed ... independent voters a close second ... and democrat voters the least informed.

Thanks for setting me straight on that.

True ... I'm just amazed that some will argue there is a difference between first/second/third and first/second/third.

The republic is in trouble because even the most informed group performed poorly.

That makes about as much sense as remarking that someone's suggestion that a three month holiday in the Seychelles would be a good idea and then following up with "so I went to Coney Island for the day"

All your reply illustrates is that you seem to hold the daft notion that the combined average of the results of two quizzes in 2013 and one quiz in 2010 can be reasonably described as the combined average of the results of all the quizzes over a period of several years

I don't have any opinion (or preference) on which of the three groups of voters would be found to be the most and least informed if a proper average of all the quizzes held in each of the years over a several year period.

However what I will say quite frankly is that if I were American and if the average of those three results did transpire to be reasonably representative, I'd be considerably more concerned about the apparent average level of knowledge across the board than I would be about the partisan split of that knowledge. which is hopefully similar to your thoughts.

I would consider the this thread, the results of the quiz, and the conclusion to be completely misleading.

Sure I know ... and I know it's the duty of "we the people" to stop it.

We have failed.

"We" had no chance EVER against it...from the git go.

What part of monopoly on violence don't you understand? If you give up your authority to a higher power that is founded and run on coercion, guess what you get?
