A clue surfaced this week in the quest to discover how our citizens can elect the likes of Michele Bachmann and Ted Cruz to represent them.

In a survey conducted among 2,300 men of voting age, participants were asked to define a handful of common technological terms. Turns out 1 in 10 think that HTML is a venereal disease. Other responses included:

  • 77% of respondents could not identify what SEO means. SEO stands for “Search-Engine Optimization”
  • 27% identified “gigabyte” as an insect commonly found in South America. A gigabyte is a measurement unit for the storage capacity of an electronic device.
  • 42% said they believed a “motherboard” was “the deck of a cruise ship.” A motherboard is usually a circuit board that holds many of the key components of a computer.
  • 23% thought an “MP3” was a “Star Wars” robot. It is actually an audio file.
