INTERVIEW SNIPPET: "Frontpage Interviews guest today is John Ziegler, a former talk show host who is the director of the documentary Blocking 'The Path to 9/11. He is now working on a new project, HowObamaGotElected.
FP: John Ziegler, welcome to Frontpage Interview.
Ziegler: Thanks. It has been a weird and rather rough time.
FP: Why has it been weird and rough?
Ziegler: Well, when I released the Zogby poll of Obama voters I never anticipated the level of outright hatred and irrationality that would be unleashed on me. I spent most of that week deleting nasty e-mail from my inbox just so I could keep receiving e-mail.
FP: Id like to talk to you about that poll today.
Lets start with your forthcoming documentary on the media coverage of the election "Media Malpractice...How Obama Got Elected." Youve also produced a video of Obama voters on election day being asked simple questions about the election. Whats it all about?
Ziegler: This is a film that I knew several months ago just HAD to get made and that I was the right person and maybe the only person who would and could do it correctly. It will tell the story of how the news media went to unprecedented lengths to help the Obama campaign from the start of the primary season right to the election. As part of that project I interviewed twelve Obama voters on election day and tried to understand how that distorted media coverage impacted what they knew, or thought that they knew about the campaign.
What I found was so incredibly astonishing that I decided to make a web video of the responses and commission a scientific nationwide Zogby poll of Obama voters to see if these results were representative of a broader reality and we found that they absolutely were.
We put the video and polling information at www.HowObamaGotElected.com and it has been a smash hit on the internet with the video getting well over one million views in less than a week."

Willfully ignorant people are just as guilty as the left-leaning creative “reporters”, in my opinion.
Thank you for the aditional link ETL.
stepping back in time...
The super delegate craziness helped but ACORN has a big impact as well.
Wonder if the hate directed at the pollster will deter him from getting at the truth as to how O got elected.
“How Obama Got Elected”

A proper side-by-side comparison should have been given, instead we live with the stupidity of an uninformed choice of those 52% that were Punk’d out by the Media bias
“Wonder if the hate directed at the pollster will deter him...”
That’s a good question.
I understand Son House and this is what good honest voters will be up against the next presidential election.
I started this thread for archival purposes only, really.
bookmark for later.
A number of things converged to a perfect storm.
Having a spectacularly bad candidate chosen for us by dems and independants didn't help.
Having an idiot sitting president who just sat there letting libs vilify him for eight years and just sat there and took it sure as hell didn't help. The idea of turning the other cheek depends on a certain set of assumptions, mainly that the other person is capable of learning something from the example, and is problematical at best; in American politics, it is a formula for disaster.
Having an entire generation of American youth totally brainwashed didn't help. Nobody can hope to prevail in any sort of a culture war while sending their children off to the enemy for indoctrination. The NEA and the govt. school monopoly must be broken before conservatives can ever prosper again.
But the biggest factor was John (the "Maverick"(TM)) McCain having his Ross Perot moment with the bailout. The American voting public will not elect somebody they view as a flake to the whitehouse.
Look folks, this should raise the stakes. The other side got out the vote, but failed to educate the voter. If we want control of congress back we've got to get people educated about their own political party. I'd say if these folks learned something about their own representatives they might not remain democrats.
I for one would like to see a similar survey completed about Republican voters. We might learn why there is such a thing as a swing voter and what we need to do to keep them loyal republicans.
We can poke fun at this stuff, but the reality is it isn't really funny. They knew more about the smears of Palin than they did about their own party.
Who ran the smear campaign?
We need to stop being scared of being label by the left.
Simple. He got elected cause there are more taxtakers then taxpayers.
One woman of my acquaintance said she didn’t like Palin. (A big fat lie.) She voted for Obama because she has a son, who, at 6, is well nigh uncontrollable — attention deficit syndrome. She must lie awake night wondering how her family will pay for his medical care, and so saw Obama as the answer to her prayers. The irony is, of course, that there won’t be enough money to pay for her son when the Great One implements socialized medicine.
