As Christian Finnegan pointed out to David Shuster on Countdown, Fox News' goal is not to inform, but to "provide light intellectual cover for the gut prejudices you already have."
Fairleigh Dickinson University conducted a poll of about 700 New Jersey residents. They adjusted the results for partisanship and came to the following conclusion:
