Here’s a great News IQ quiz from the Pew Research Center. I’d hope that anyone who reads Grand Rants would score at least 10 out of 12. (Full disclosure: I took the quiz and got all 12 questions correct, although I had to stop and think about one of them.)
As a nation, how’d we score? The those with a high-school education or less scored dismally, at the 31st percentile. Horrifyingly, however, the average 18- to 29-year-old scored even worse, down at the 28th percentile. These are the folks who voted in hordes for Obama.
Hmmm, I wonder what conclusions we could draw?
