Our local left, likes to publish surveys that make Republicans look bad. Power Line’s Steven Hayward brings this Pew Survey to our attention via the Daily Caller
The Daily Caller reports on a recent Pew survey that finds Republicans are better informed than Democrats on political issues:
On eight of 13 questions about politics, Republicans outscored Democrats by an average of 18 percentage points, according to a new Pew survey titled “Partisan Differences in Knowledge.”
The Pew survey adds to a wave of surveys and studies showing that GOP-sympathizers are better informed, more intellectually consistent, more open-minded, more empathetic and more receptive to criticism than their fellow Americans who support the Democratic Party.
Steven Hayward favorite factoid of the story:
A March Washington Post poll showed that Democrats were more willing to change their views about a subject to make their team look good. For example, in 2006, 73 percent of Democrats said the GOP-controlled White House could lower gas prices, but that number fell by more than half to 33 percent in 2012 once a Democrat was in the White House.
Remember when Bush and Cheney, those nasty oil guys, were responsible for high gas prices, now with Obama in the WH it is those nasty speculators. This real issue in both cases is the lack of a comprehensive national energy plan. We cannot get there until we know there is!
