Is SOH a direct indication of how the rest of the country comprehends any given subject?
Most of the people are not well informed and the MSM made it worse.
No, I think we are better informed, because the people who get involved in political discussions on SOH are the ones who care about such things and therefore tend to be more knowledgeable about them. People who don't care don't know as much because they don't pay attention.
I hope the average SoHers are more intelligent & informed.
