Viewers of dopey late night alternanews may be drunk or stoned while watching (according to Bill "no spin" O'Reilly), but they seem to know more about the issues in the campaign than people who avoid nighttime comedy:
Polling conducted between July 15 and Sept. 19 among 19,013 adults showed that on a six-item political knowledge test people who did not watch any late-night comedy programs in the past week answered 2.62 items correctly, while viewers of Late Night with David Letterman on CBS answered 2.91, viewers of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno answered 2.95, and viewers of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart answered 3.59 items correctly.

Left out of the quiz were questions testing knowledge of local fires, car crashes, and kittens stuck in trees. This is probably the content area where Daily Show avoiders would shine.
