They asked them ridiculous questions such as if they wanted President Obama to kill Osama bin Laden if he wins re-election or if he should get life imprisonment, not realizing that he is already dead.
“Every person they interviewed – about 10 people – didn’t know that bin Laden was dead,” Stern laughed during an exchange with sidekick Robin Quivers. “I could play every single one of these interviews, and they don’t know that bin Laden’s dead.”
Still others thought that Obama did the right thing picking Paul Ryan as his running mate or that Mitt Romney was a Muslim.
Stern’s crew even was able to find people who thought that Sen. John McCain was on the ballot for 2012 against Obama.
“I just don’t see McCain is presidential material,” one woman who was interviewed said.
One Obama supporter even thought he was pro-life and was unaware of the President’s staunch abortion-on-demand ideology. The same was true on gay marriage where the same individual said he supported Obama because he was against gay marriage.
Asked if he was bothered by Mitt Romney’s support of gay marriage, the same individual said the GOP nominee’s alleged stance on the issue bothered him.
Quivers laughed at the responses, noting that many people don’t know the issues let alone care about them and vote based on names on the ballot.
“It’s interesting that all you need to do is to get your name out there because nobody knows what you’re about,” Quivers said.
Stern agreed, noting that many people just vote based on party label without regard to who is on the ballot.
