Misinformed voters

I don't think it's fair to ask voters about Rep. Barney Frank (D.-Mass.), who really hasn't been newsworthy for years. But it does concern me that so many voters don't know which party controls Congress. (If you're concerned about the sample size, the website also commissioned a scientific poll of 512 voters that strongly correlated with these results.) If voters can't identify Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) as Speaker of the House--second in line for the presidency--well, I'm very disappointed. While the guy was busy interviewing these voters, he should have asked them who the current v.p. is. Last time I checked, only 65% of voters could correctly answer that question. Another pro-Obama website could probably do a similar video on McCain voters. (The Muslim question is obvious.)
