They tend to be low-information voters who vote Dem if they vote at all.

Depends how you define "low information". Studies have shown that the more educated a person is the more likely they vote Democrat. Not being partisan here, it's simply a fact (easily looked-up).

But ethnicity and income also play a role. The GOP has the majority of whites without a college degree, for example. Dems tend to do best with low-income and highly-educated people, while the GOP tends to get higher income and less-educated people. The "middle ground" breaks out more by ethnicity and geography (i.e. rural or urban).

If you mean "watches Fox News", then yes...those who don't watch Fox tend to vote Dem. But studies have shown that those who don't watch Fox are higher-information voters than those that do. In fact, someone who watches NO NEWS AT ALL is better-informed than a Fox viewer. (At least two separate studies have confirmed this.)
