74. Hmmm

 

I'll have to think on that... But my gut reaction is that anyone who truly believes that there's little difference between the two parties, who can be swayed by slick advertising and political commentary from the talking heads, or barroom conversations etc. instead of researching the issues thoroughly as many of us do, truly is a low-information voter. And no, I don't think their vote is worth any less - I'm just making an observation that America has been dumbed down and that process continues to create a more ignorant voting base - probably on purpose. The idea of not allowing supposedly "ignorant" people to vote, however, is a Republican idea. They know poor people favor Democrats and the poor have less access to quality education, and the Republicans truly believe that the poor are too ignorant to see that they should really be voting for them. IMO that is the real insult, when Republicans talk about "low-information voters."
