Americans and Common Sense

Americans and Common Sense... here I mean US Americans...

Only 18% got it right, for these 3 simple questions!

A very funny article!

Americans Flunk Simple 3-Question Political Survey

Excerpt

//

Participants were asked to name the controlling party of the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. secretary of state and Great Britain's prime minister.

Overall, just 18 percent of participants answered all three questions correctly.

More than 50 percent of Americans knew that the Democrats have a majority in the House, while 42 percent could identify the secretary of state (Condoleezza Rice). Less than 30 percent could name the prime minister of Great Britain (Gordon Brown).

This is something like half the kids in USA tell that India is in Africa!
