ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST: On November 4, documentary filmmaker John Zeigler interviewed a dozen Obama supporters as they left the polls. He asked them simple questions about the campaign and politics in general. Here are some of their responses.


JOHN ZEIGLER, FILMMAKER: Which party currently controls Congress?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Currently? Like — I don't know, actually.




ZEIGLER: Republicans control Congress?


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Probably Republican because the president's Republican. That's my honest answer.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I think it's — it's Republicans who control it now, I believe.


ZEIGLER: Which political party currently controls Congress?

Video: Watch Sean and Alan's interview with John Zeigler


ZEIGLER: You don't know?


ZEIGLER: Which wore clothes that their party spent $150,000 on?


ZEIGLER: Which has a pregnant teenage daughter?


ZEIGLER: Which has a pregnant teenage daughter?


ZEIGLER: Which of the four candidates has a pregnant teenage daughter?


OBAMA: I've now been in 57 states. I think one left to go.

ZEIGLER: Which claimed to have campaigned in 57 states?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Sarah Palin, I don't know.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Fifty-seven states? Probably Sarah Palin.


COLMES: The same questions were asked in a nationwide Zogby poll of Obama voters. Some of the highlights were that, while 81 percent identified McCain as the candidate who forget how many houses he owned, only 42 could say which party controls the Congress.

Joining us now is former radio talk show host, documentary filmmaker and the producer of 'Blocking the Path to 9/11," John Zeigler.

How are you doing, John?

ZEIGLER: Doing all right, Alan. Give me your best shot.

COLMES: Moi? Look...

ZEIGLER: Yes. Go ahead.

SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST: Fire away, John.

COLMES: I just want to ask you this. If you were to go out and find McCain supporters, could you put together a similar documentary with those kind of wrong answers?

ZEIGLER: Not without the corresponding poll results, Alan. And here's the challenge I present to you and any other liberal. I will bet you the money that I spent on this video on this poll, which was about $13,000 for you to go out and do the same thing with McCain voters. And if you get the same poll results or worse, I will pay you your expenses. I will double your expenses.

COLMES: No, you fund my film first. I want the money first. I want it up front.

ZEIGLER: I'll be happy to do that up front, if you pay me back in double. You will not be able to duplicate the poll results with McCain voters. Not a chance in the world, Alan. And you know it.

COLMES: So your point is the people who voted for Barack Obama are a bunch of morons...


COLMES: ... and the people who voted for John McCain are all bright, well-educated, knowledgeable human beings?

ZEIGLER: No, because that would, of course, be racist, like every other criticism of Barack Obama.

COLMES: That's not what I'm saying. I'm just asking you about your position.

ZEIGLER: But no. No, here's what I'm saying, Alan. What I'm saying is that the media coverage of this campaign was so scandalous, so beyond bias, into the realm of media malpractice, which is why I'm doing a documentary with that title — and that's why we did this film, at HowObamaGotElected.com — that the reality is the media coverage was so horrendous that Obama voters had no idea for what they were voting. They had no idea about some of the basic issues of the campaign, many of which you and Sean talked an awful lot about.

COLMES: So what you're saying. John, at least be honest and tell me, because what you're saying is you believe we stupidly elected Barack Obama. The people who did it, you think, are not that bright. If they knew anything they wouldn't have voted for him. Isn't that the point you're trying to make?

ZEIGLER: No, that's what you would like to believe, Alan. But the reality is, I think that every person that was interviewed on that video, which again you can find for yourself, 12 people who are very intelligent, very informed at HowObamaGotElected.com?

I, by the way, did not choose them. They were chosen by a black female, by the way, Alan. I had nothing to do with choosing the subjects for my — my documentary.

But the reality is these are not dumb people.

HANNITY: John...

ZEIGLER: That's a tragedy. They're not dumb people. They were misinformed by the media.

Yes, Sean.

HANNITY: For years on radio, for years on television, I do a bit. It's called man on the street. And this corroborates every single interview I've ever had.

It's frustrating to me how ill-informed people are, you know, that can cancel out our well-educated, well-informed vote. I mean, you look at the numbers here.

As much as I talked about the Weather Underground, 56 percent couldn't identify that Obama started his career in Ayers' house. Eighty-eight percent said that — could not correctly say that Obama, you know, wanted to eliminate the coal industry, as he said, as you point out. These questions are really fundamental and really basic.

ZEIGLER: Well, Sean — well, Sean, the important point here is the Zogby poll, which will come out in its entirety tomorrow, was a multiple choice question.


ZEIGLER: This wasn't just off the top of your head. That means if you were guessing, if you were guessing, you would get 25 percent of them right, because we gave them the four choices of Obama, Biden, McCain, and Palin. There are three questions on this list that a group of monkeys, if they had been guessing, would have done better than the Obama voters did.

HANNITY: Let me...

ZEIGLER: HowObamaGotElected.com.

HANNITY: One question — one question. Nearly 60 percent could not correctly say which party controls Congress. Now, that's frightening.

ZEIGLER: What else can you say?

HANNITY: That's pretty bad.

ZEIGLER: What can you say? HowObamaGotElected.com.

HANNITY: I've identified this as Obamania syndrome, and the media, I think, are the biggest culprits. Journalism died. And I suggest, for better — you know, from what I've seen of this documentary, it's pretty frightening, I've got to tell you, John. Thanks.

ZEIGLER: Thank you, Sean.
