FactCheck.org: Our Disinformed Electorate
Notable, but disheartening. FTA: "We humans all have a basic disposition to embrace our side's arguments and reject or ignore those offered by an opponent. Our polling reflects that. [...] Voters aren’t highly knowledgeable about government to begin with. [...] And voters, once deceived, tend to stay that way despite all evidence [...] None of this bodes well for the future, in our view. Spending hundreds of millions of dollars on campaigns that systematically disinform the public can only make the task of governing harder for the eventual winner."
