Interesting political survey
Take the simple quiz and see how you do. Also, read the article, which is written about the longer quiz.
Overall, we're pretty ignorant as a nation on the most basic of political issues. The fact that an entire demographic can have less than a 50% score on one of the T/F questions from the 13-question interactive quiz is mind-boggling.

I got a 13. The fact that only 8% got a 13/13 makes me sick. Republicans crush the Dems on political knowledge though.Blog: Hidden Content

Got them all right with no problem...I'm surprised that only 55% of respondents knew that Lincoln was a Republican.
The most missed question was: Which party is generally more supportive of reducing the size and scope of the federal government?

13/13...that was even slow pitch, that was kickball.
I can see people missing Roosevelt and Lincoln's party, things have changed back and forth throughout the past....but still, all in all, sad to see the level of the general public's knowledge and sad to think these people are voting.
