Are you smarter than your elected officials? Answered
A new study found that after giving the ISI civil literacy quiz to over 2000 people, those who held some form of office scored lower on average than those who didn't!
Bear in mind it was close, and both were poor: 44% to 49%, yet it's kind of scary to think about!
You can take the quiz yourself, and see how well you do. I got a 64%, which isn't great, but I'm apparently in the top 85% of the random sample!
I'm curious how some non-Americans will fare. Please don't be embarrassed to post your score, we won't mock you too much...
