Poll: Many voters clueless about 2012


Just over half of those surveyed, 53 percent, correctly answered Massachusetts when asked where Romney served as governor, according to a Pew Research Center poll. And only 45 percent of voters were able to identify South Carolina as the state where the next primary will be held, while just 44 percent identified Ron Paul as the GOP hopeful who opposes U.S. involvement in Afghanistan.

Sixty-nine percent of voters gave the correct answer of Newt Gingrich when asked which GOP 2012 candidate once served as House speaker, the survey found.

A higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats answered each of the above questions correctly. All in all, 43 percent of voters gave correct answers to at least three of the four questions, or 48 percent of Republicans and 41 percent of Democrats.
