This is a cool test.
It shows results in a number of ways. It indicates that the majority of Americans haven't the slightest idea as to what is going on.
It's no wonder our politicians take such advantage of us.
This is an interesting and simple test. It's astonishing that so many people got less than half right. The results say that 80% of the (voting) public doesn't have a clue and that's pretty scary. There are no tricks here - just a simple test to see if you are current on your information. Test your knowledge with 13 questions, then be ready to shudder when you see how others did.

only missed the islam symbol
Oh for the love of Pete, I missed the Sotomayor question. I was sure I had them all.
Got them all right, but it wasn’t that hard.
Freepers should be proud.
Thanks to all Freepers and thanks to Jim Robinson for FreeRepublic.
I didn’t miss any. And I had to answer that I’ve had no education beyond high school.
I missed the Soledad O’Brien question. My guess is that the average freeper would score 12.5
I must not watch FOX News.
Got ‘em all right except the one on the unemployment rate — I was thinking of the actual rate vs. the rate reported by the gov’t.
I got them all right.
it must asked different questions to different people
13/13. I would expect most freepers to score well
The only Turkey I know about is the one on my Thanksgiving Day table.........
Yes, it was very, very easy. I expected tricky stuff.
I nearly voted Kagan for the Sot0mayor pic.
Since the average score among men was around eight correct and the average score among women was around six correct, this must prove that women are subject to ongoing harassment and oppression by the Pew Research Center.
Got them all correct... not a hard test. On the other hand, I’ve been paying attention.
Aced it... too flukin easy...
Got 12 right. Only missed Sotomayor...which is surprising considering how much media attention they were given. However, they’re both so fugly that I must have blocked them out of my mind.
But why did women do so poorly on the test? Are we seriously stupid or just clueless? The men totally pwned us on every question. Depressing.

Easy questions but results explain how Obama Got Elected:
Men Averaged 8.5 of 13
Women Averaged 6.8 of 13
I got 13 - gotta help the women’s score. Many women I know just say they’re not political. Unfortunately, many of them are also ill informed and vote with their emotions.
got them all, but was a little lucky wit sotomaie
The only one I missed was one of the easiest...Speaker of the house.
Dumb me, I can not get that picture of Paluzie and her gavel
out of my head.
Yes, I do know that we recently took back the House.
After seeing the results of that quiz it is understandable as to why the Founding Fathers originally limited voting rights to older educated men of property.
I got 100%, just like most of my peers.
13/13 and I DIDN’T vote for 0bama, imagine that? This so-called IQ test was made easy otherwise HALF of America would fail it because they’ve been INTENTIONALLY DUMBED DOWN by liberal teachers whose goal it is to manufacture more TOTALLY IGNORANT Democrat voters.
13/13. Too easy for this female woman of the delicate persuasion who barely made it out of high school.
Aced it. Very easy.
“Men Averaged 8.5 of 13
Women Averaged 6.8 of 13”
Yeesh, what a dipshiite test - almost a quarter of the questions involved matching a picture to a name; almost all the rest were something I expect my 8th grader could handle. Looking at the average score, I despair for my country.
But not only did women do worse than men overall, they did worse than men on every single lousy question.
Thank God for female freepers - I’m confident they at least did better than the national male average.
I, another woman, got 100%. Currently that’s 8% of those taking the quiz. Very, very sad.
Missed one, no idea which one. Maybe the first guy? Was he Federal Reserve?
I also got 13/13. Didn’t even have to think hard about any of them.
All of the women acing the test are probably FReepers.
Very easy...I expected a much harder go...sad state of affairs that many (men & women) don’t know such basic knowledge.
So did I - missed only the Sotomayor.
Obama will exploit this in his war on Congress when the Republican House has been doing work and Hooligan Harry's Do Nothing Democrat Senate has become a legislative black hole.
Now I feel like a nerd.
Depressing, isn't it. What's why some women, like Ann Coulter, think women haven't earned the franchise.
Additionally, our Forefathers understood what happens when candidates are male and if voters are female. Votes get cast for all the wrong reasons.
That’s how I missed the one I missed.
Got them all except that one- and for the same reason.
Holy crap. I got all 13 right.
I got 13 correct.
Which one is the Islam symbol.
Agreed. Far too easy. Any half-baked political junkie — yes, even lefty turds — would have gotten 10-11 minimum.
got 13/13 right
13 of 13. Freepers must make up that 8%. ;)
