They are not just misinformed, they are intentionally uninformed and that's exactly how they like it. Ask them about the latest video game, or "reality" show on TV, or the latest news about the Kardashians, and they will show you what they DO know about.
Fox doesn't do this to them, they do it to themselves.

However, when it comes to voting, I think that an amazingly high percentage of voters could not name the vice president, or one of their senators. Their ignorance is astounding and I wish there were some way to ensure that they had at least a rudimentary knowledge of the candidates and issues before being allowed to vote. I know it won't happen.
As far as one-issue voters go, gun control may have taken over from abortion as number one!
