A Basic Civics Test

While the Democrats beat the bushes for more voters, I wonder if we might be better off if a lot of voters stayed home.

The Intercollegiate Studies Institute gave a basic civic literacy test to 2,500 Americans including college students, elected officials and other randomly selected citizens. Nearly 1,800 flunked the test, in fact, elected officials scored slightly lower than the general public with an average score of 44% compared to 49%. Only 0.8 % scored an A.

I scored a 82 %.
Give it a try if you want.
