66% of online Republicans and 58% of online Democrats think that the internet is full of misinformation
66% online Republicans and 58% online Democrats are likely to agree that the internet is full of misinformation that voters believe is accurate. In contrast, online Democrats are more likely to say the internet helps them feel connected to their candidates and the campaign, according to Pew Internet Project. Some 35% of wired Democrats agree with that, compared with 24% of Republicans and 28% of independents. In contrast to online Republicans, both independents and Democrats who use the internet are more likely to agree with the statement, “I would not be as involved in this campaign as much if it weren’t for the internet.” One-quarter of online independents (26%) and Democrats (23%) subscribe to that view, versus 16% of Republicans.
