    The less Americans know about Ukraine’s location, the more they want U.S. to interven

    The less Americans know about UkraineAmericans showing off their geographical knowledge again. I've got to think the people that thought Ukraine was within the US were pranking them though. Still, even the people who were "kind of close" were more likely to favor intervention if they got it wrong.

    EDIT: Should I clarify that I don't put this on "all Conservatives," or would it be more fun to watch it twisted into that?

    Notice they didn't poll any ultra-Liberal regions of the country?

    I'm looking for the original data, but as of yet I cannot find it. Where are you getting this information? The Washington Post article cites no such sample data, and they do not link to their March research.

    I was looking at the dots on the map. Am I in error?

    Yes.

    The dots are where people who were surveyed think Ukraine is. What kind of moron thinks Ukraine is in the midwestern United States, I don't want to know.

    Yup.

    Likewise, their sample data indicates that neither major party voter has an advantage in being more correct.

    So, do you have any info on who was polled and what parts of the country they live in?

    None of us do, except for the insinuation that it was a national sample.

    Do you know how representative sampling works?

    I have a feeling that doesn't matter at the moment. Let's just wait and see how long this keeps up.
