Nearly Half Have No Idea About Health Care

A new Pew Research poll finds that 45% of Americans either didn't know what the Supreme Court had decided with regards to President Obama's health care law (30%) or thought that the Supreme Court had overturned the law (15%).

The Fix concludes that "assuming that the electorate is paying close attention to the political goings-on -- even when they are so seemingly high profile as the Court ruling on health care -- is a mistake. Most people -- especially those who are unaffiliated or independent voters -- tend to be relatively low information voters. That is, they don't have all the facts on an issue -- and they don't really care to find them out."
