The truly depressing thing for me is that as elementary as these questions are to understanding how the government works, it would be cast as racist, discriminatory and unacceptable by one of the two major political parties if you advocated the same standard be met before being allowed to vote. Even if you lowered the passing grade to one correct out of 96, it would still be “racist”.
More’s the pity, that so many could not, or perhaps willfully WOULD not, pass this test, even though they are endowed by birthright with citizenship.
Incidentally, I got all 96, mostly as information I already had by the time I was in about fourth grade. The rest is largely based on current information.
Oddly, no questions were about MTV or NFL. Those I would probably miss.
