    thing.

    67% claim to be unfamiliar with these exchanges
    The Republican fringe won't go near the Exchanges. They know the Exchanges are evil. They heard it from their elected Republicans. So they would be unfamiliar with the Exchanges. By design.

    It seems fair to question kos about his conclusions. But your evidence, as presented here, does not disprove kos.

    You've put your own  "most likely" this means that, in your diary. But Gallop doesn't prove your assessments either. Only your interpretation of Gallup.

    Does that mean you made "up a narrative that fit your preconceptions"?

    •  Unfamiliarity is a form of ignorance (2+ / 0-)

      Perhaps some folks are intentionally ignorant as you suggest. Gallup's analysis doesn't provide a firm basis for any narrative and I am not trying to claim it does. Perhaps I should have said something like "appears to be more consistent with Gallup's analysis".

      look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

      •  I don't see the word "ignorant" in the Gallop (0+ / 0-)

        poll information you've posted, I see the word "unfamiliar".

        Have you substituted the word ignorance for unfamiliar?  They do not mean the same thing. It could be interpreted as such, but not necessarily.

        "Appears to me, to be more consistent with Gallup's analysis", would be an accurate and a fair statement.  Because that is your interpretation of the poll analysis.

        I'm not saying your wrong. You may be totally correct. But you may also be wrong.
