Many Voters Uninformed About GOP

It may seem like Republican presidential primary is the only thing the news media cares about these days, yet many voters are still clueless as to who's running and what's going on. A new Pew Research Center poll found that less than half of registered voters realize that South Carolina is the next state to hold a primary, about half know of which state Mitt Romney was governor and 44 percent of voters recognize Ron Paul for his staunch opposition to war. Voters age 65 and older who consider themselves Republican or Republican-leaning were the most informed on the election while only 26 percent of GOP voters below the age of 40 knew the answers to at least three of the four questions on the survey.
