I got 10 out of 12. Not bad. If you get less than 7 of 12 then you shouldn't vote! ;)

I got 8, but hen again - I am Canadian.

Joe Cavalry, I beg you to never leave.

9 of the 12 politically savvy am I, I am.

(There needs to be like a meter that shows when you are at 50 characters.)

You correctly answered 11 out of the 12 possible questions, which means you did better on the quiz than 92% of the general public.

Mmm. Yummy. A Jamaican knows more about these things than 92% of Americans. Some of those demographics are actually quite appalling, though.

18-29 year olds got a mean score of ~4. Men 6. Women ~5. 30-50+ ~6.

Yeah, the idea that only 26% of people knew the amount needed to break a filibuster was sad.

What is even worse is that these statistics are probably lower in reality because the only people who would consider going to Pew to take the poll are the ones who are actually "active" in politics.

I am really quite suprised .Really.

Hmm, not as much as I thought. I got 75% right. I missed questions 1,5, 8 and 11. I missed 1 because I've heard reports that it's closer to 20%, so my source is bad. As to number 5, I thought there must have been a few idiot Republicans who voted for it. The last two I just didn't know.

"You correctly answered 12 of the 12 possible questions along with approximately 2% of the public. You did better than 98% of the general public."

The one about the total fatalities in war during 2009 was a guess but all the others were either common sense questions or current events.
