Lots of Ignorant folks out there.

This is probably why Democratic Progressives win any elections at all.

One in Three Voters Don't Know Who Controls Congress
With the crucial midterm elections in November set to determine which party controls Congress, one in three U.S. voters are unaware of who currently controls the U.S. House and Senate, a new poll reveals.
The Rasmussen Reports survey of likely voters found that just 63 percent know that Republicans have a majority in the House, and the same percentage are aware that Democrats control the Senate.
Twenty percent of respondents mistakenly believe that Democrats control the House, with 17 percent not sure, and 18 percent think Republicans are in charge of the Senate.
One-third of voters believe it is better for the nation when one political party controls both the House and the Senate, while 44 percent think it is better when a different party is in charge of each chamber. Twenty-three percent are undecided.
No Republican in the House or Senate voted in favor of the Affordable Care Act, yet 31 percent of those polled are not sure how their representative in Congress voted on Obamacare.
It is not surprising, then, that just 9 percent of respondents believe that most Americans are informed voters regarding major policy issues.
Other findings of the Rasmussen poll include:
54 percent believe it is at least somewhat likely that Republicans will take control of the Senate in November, but only 20 percent believe it is "very likely."
20 percent say they don't know enough about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to offer an opinion of him, and 27 percent say the same thing about Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.
Just 6 percent of the likely voters think Congress is doing a good or excellent job, while 65 percent say its performance is poor.
25 percent of voters think their own member of Congress deserves re-election, the lowest percentage in nearly five years.
