In the 2012 election, you'll be happy to know, misinformation thrives. Obama is Muslim, says 23.1 percent of U.S. adults in a national survey. But ...how about a face-to-face versus a web-based survey? Respondents were randomly assigned to get one or the other. I'd expect in the F2F version, you might see fewer kooky responses. Turns out, I'm right.
- F2F: 19.9 percent say he's Muslim
- Web: 24.7 percent say he's Muslim
- F2F: 9.2 percent
- Web: 16.8 percent
Maybe it's time for me to do another "Obama is a Muslim" study after all.
