Americans fall short on citizenship test

Updated

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.
