    I just barely passed with 24 correct.....

    A score of 24 out of 30 is considered a passing grade. Supposedly 96% of all High School Seniors FAILED this test.. AND if that's not bad enough, 50+% of all individuals over 50 did too!!

    Take the test and be surprised at what we don't know. It is a history test about our country we should know......

  3. I got 27. Didn't know about Ike, I chose the obvious answer. Missed the amendments not ratified and the liquor one (Trying not to give the answers).
    I can't believe High schoolers were THAT bad

  5. Being a Conservative, you probably lied, cheated, stole, did whatever you could to get that score. Can you say: "Exploited the Man"???

    Come on, you Conservative......

    got 10 correct.....give it a try!

    Current events quiz......

    This is a interesting, simple test that shows the results in a number of ways. It sure indicates that the majority of Americans don't know what's going on. It's astonishing that so many people got less than half right.

    There are no tricks here - just a simple test to see if you are current on your information. This is quite good and the results are shocking.

    Test your knowledge with questions, then be ready to shudder when you see how others did

    This one says I'm a Centrist.......


    Try this test. It's said that 16 million people have taken it already and it’s supposedly very accurate. You'll be asked just 10 questions, and then it instantly tells you where you stand politically. It shows your position as a red dot on a "political map" so you'll see exactly where you score. The most interesting thing about the Quiz is that it goes beyond the Democrat, Republican, and Independent. The Quiz has gotten a lot of praise. The Washington Post said it has "gained respect as a valid measure of a person's political leanings." The Fraser Institute said it's "a fast, fun, and accurate assessment of a person's overall political views." Suite University said it is the "most concise and accurate political quiz out there."

    OK—give it your best---

    Try this test! It is very interesting. It will test your knowledge of current events. It is interesting that 11 people of the original survey conducted by Pew Research did not get a single question correct.

    This is an excellent test and it shows results in a number of ways. National results indicate that the majority of Americans don't know what is going on in their country. Are these the "low information voters" we have been hearing about?

    It is astonishing that so many people got less than half of the questions right. The results say that 80% of the voting public are clueless about current events. That's pretty scary but not at all surprising.

    There are no trick questions in this test -- Either you know the answer or you don't. It will give you an idea whether or not you are current on your information data base.

    The test contains 13 straight forward questions.
