[ANES 2008 data]
Universe = people who self-reported that they voted for President in 2008
Question 1:"Do you happen to know which party had the most members in the House of Representatives in Washington BEFORE the election (this/last) month?
Question 2:"Do you happen to know which party had the most members in the U.S. Senate BEFORE the election (this/last)month?"
The results are dismal no matter how you look at it, but on these basic questions Republicans and Men were less poorly informed than Democrats and Women.
|By Party ID||Dems Control House||GOP Control House||\\||Dems Control Senate||GOP Control Senate|
|By Gender||Dems Control House||GOP Control House||\\||Dems Control Senate||GOP Control Senate|
Though I'm glad Republicans outperformed, this is hardly chest-thumping data. How the hell did the party run a major election without conveying this basic information? This is a colossal failure of GOP campaign management.
