They know more than you think. Just because someone does not hide behind a keyboard does not make them ignorant. Plenty of "ignorant boomers" marching on DC over the past couple of years to get their point across.
They know of the corruption and lies within our political system because they have all seen it slide downhill right before their eyes.

Be careful where you are pointing that finger and remember how many are pointing back at the true ignorance.

I tend to take polls with a grain of salt and try to make up my own mind when it come to Wikileaks and Assange.
The poll was conducted Dec. 9 to 12 among a random national sample of 1,001 adults.

How do you all feel?
