How Dumb Are We?
Newsweek gave 1,000 Americans the U.S. Citizenship Test–38 percent failed. Brian and Todd both would have passed the test, but missed more than they should have. How would you do?
When NEWSWEEK recently asked 1,000 U.S. citizens to take America’s official citizenship test, 29 percent couldn’t name the vice president. Seventy-three percent couldn’t correctly say why we fought the Cold War. Forty-four percent were unable to define the Bill of Rights. And 6 percent couldn’t even circle Independence Day on a calendar.
