Or maybe they just prattle on with no idea of what the theory actually is.

I think that's the more accurate assessment. Evolution is probably the least widely understood theory amongst the general public. Lots of people have the idea mutations happen to individual specimens, but that is probably only the grossest mistake. The "I was not descended from an ape" argument probably sums it all up quite well.

I think more people have a better idea of Relativity than they do of Darwinian evolution.
