5. sheeple....
Although it's a politically incorrect term, it is nonetheless an accurate description of many, perhaps the majority, of Americans. They get their information largely from the infotainment media, and form their world view upon that basis. They are information consumers at the end of a corporate production line, spoonfed product. They aspire to being the lowest common denominator. As awful as that sounds, it is broadly true. Sheeple.
