The Difficulty of Policy Voting

APUSGV-9G9CGC

How has modern media coverage made policy voting increasingly difficult for American voters?

A

Voters rely on comedy shows to get their information.

B

Voters are rarely aware of a candidate's policy preferences because the media focuses more on appearances and the public campaign than on specific issues.

C

The Internet is flooded with misinformation about candidates and voters cannot distinguish between legitimate sources and social media/blog websites.

D

The media is so thorough with a candidate's policy preferences that voters are over-informed.

E

The media only focuses on a candidate's appearance leaving voters in the dark on policy preferences.
