For an immigrant to become a U.S. citizen, he or she is required to pass the 100-question U.S. Citizenship test. American-born citizens have no such obligation, and it shows.
In a recent Newsweek Magazine poll 1000 people answered 10 of the 100 questions at random.
Some of the more astonishing stats:
38% failed the whole thing.
29% didn’t know who the current Vice President is.
27% don’t know who is in charge of the Executive branch.
6% didn’t know when Independence Day is.
Test yourself to see how you stack up.
