Got the Kosovo question wrong. I knew it too. Whip me, beat me, make me eat dirt; I'm a bad American

Got a 91 which is 11 out of 12. I rather dislike politics and pay no real attention to it because it's too infuriating and negative.

Strange thing is the "HS or less" education level averages 29.

Scored an 83. Embarrassed to have missed the one on two major islamic groups in Iraq. Lets just say I got the size of groups wrong.


Also missed the one on whomever leads the Federal Reserve Board.

I only remember the two groups because of my humanities teacher in college. He was Iranian and always said when somebody screwed up "the Shi'ite is about to hit the fan"!

7 out of 12 isn't bad for someone who isn't savvy with U.S. politics.

Okay for a n00b.

I got 12 out of 12. These types of quizzes can be a real wake-up call for many people of all ages. I agree that this particular quiz assumes that you live in the USA.

59% here.

not bad for a non-American I thought.

Yeah... it helps when you study topics like these. I am an economics major and those seemed to be some of the tougher questions. International Affairs students should have an edge when it comes to this test.... I would at least hope so.


If you failed I would suggest that you change your major.

I also got 76%, could it be a Portuguese thing?


I wonder why, from all those more or less US related questions there were the questions about Hugo Chavez and Serbia.

Here's Your Score: You correctly answered 11 out of the 12 possible questions, which means you did better on the quiz than 91% of the general public.
Can you name the chairperson of the Democratic National Committee? Howard Dean Incorrect >>>oops


Amazing if the general public REALLY only knows 50%?? Wow... And the clueless/ignorant public is allowed to VOTE. Scary.

Thanks for sharing, Lloyd
