Super What? 

Despite warnings from liberal quarters that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the groups that are backing him financially are trying to buy the election, a majority of American voters have no idea what a super PAC is. A Pew Research Center poll released Aug. 2 found that only 25 percent of respondents said they've heard a lot about the outside spending groups and 46 percent said they don't know what the term "super PAC" means. (Photos from left: Win McNamee/Getty Images, Spencer Platt/Getty Images, GettyImages)
