What is a "Low Information Voter?" According to Walter Hickey at Business Insider, Lindsay Lohan is a premier example. Why?
Lohan, by all accounts, is a typical low-information voter. And low information voters, like it or not, will decide this election. ...
These people don't follow politics, don't understand the issues with depth, and plan to vote based on what little information they've gleaned. ...
Lohan is a low information voter convinced that (a) employment is really important, (b) thinks that employment is not being sufficiently handled by the White House right now and (c) thinks that Mitt Romney is better equipped to handle employment.Get that? A Low information voter:
And a L.I.V. also "thinks that Mitt Romney is better equipped to handle employment." Well, going against a record like Obama's, who wouldn't be?
That arguably logical sequence is all that it takes for a low-information voter to support Mitt Romney. The thing is, there are millions of voters like her. That should terrify the Obama campaign.This is of course typical lefty trope - that when the people reject their totalist programs, it's because they just plain stupid.
