There is no requirement that voters must be well-informed. This year, turnout climbed significantly among "low information voters."
Now is a good time to remember this message from former President John F. Kennedy:
"Low information voters" may vote by emotion. Or to go along with their friends and peers. Or be swept away by a movement.
They may know nothing about issues except from watching The Daily Show, The View, or The Tonight Show.
Simply put, their votes will be controlled by Hollywood, pop culture, and the media.
Years ago, an infamous article claimed that Christian voters were mostly "poor, uneducated and easily led." Now we should ask whether the description fits many who liberals rely upon for votes.
And let's ask what can we do to fix this. That's what "The Kitchen Table Agenda" is all about.
