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.

13 of 13 correct. I thought it would be harder.
My 60-something year old mother has actually said she couldn’t be FOR a candidate in the past because they look like a “drip” or some such 1960’s word. When we were watching TV and they showed a clip of Newt saying something really good she said “right on” but when I asked her if she’d vote for him she said no she doesn’t like his looks.?!
Believe it or not they have church friends who are actively for Obama’s re-election. Told her I could not possibly be friends with someone like that. Shouldn’t a Christian be more discerning than that?!
100% Wasn’t very hard. Sad to see only 8% could answer all of them. To be honest, I didn’t know which one was Brazil but I knew Brazil is darn big. I picked the biggest one and was right.
My Auntie sent this to me in the email the other day and I GOT THEM ALL RIGHT AND I’M a WOMAN!!!!!!
Really it was easy, but of the people i sent it to, no one else got it right.
I watch Fox and read FR....what else can I say? I pay attention to what I see/read?
Me too...but I contend it is Islamic and more prevalently seen in the Western World than the blatantly islamic symbol they chose as the right one. For all I know, it could have said, “Abudullah was here”.....
36% of women know republicans only had house majority. Wow no wonder they support this clown.
I missed two, one was the Sotomayor question, and the other one was one I accidentally clicked the wrong answer and changed it, but it still registered the wrong one.
I completely get why I missed Sotomayor. Both unqualified female hard-core liberals dedicated to tearing down the country.
I had the same problem with Pelousy, but caught myself and changed it to no avail.
Same problem I have. I don’t watch television or read newspapers/magazines.
I missed the David Cameron or Tony Howard question.
Right wing nut job goes 13 for 13!
That would explain a lot of Romney's votes.
The OldPossum got 100% correct. I must be paying attention.
Yep - Bernanke at Fed
My wife’s best friend is just like that — “Those stupid Republicans - they hate all women. Just look what they did to that Fluke kid. And they are trying to outlaw contraception. Are you going to vote for Obama?”
They are dear friends as long as politics doesn’t come up. My wife usually just bites her tongue when it does.
