They call it civics…But it is history too.

    You can consult the following table to see how citizens and elected officials scored on each question.

    The table showing the deficit between "citizens" and "elected officials" is revealing. There are only 4 questions for which "elected officials" had a larger percentage of correct answers.

    Presuming knowledge of basic civics and history is useful for governing, we would be better off governed by people chosen randomly from a phone book. Oh, wait, well, do those exist anymore?

  3. 87.88% 29 of 34. 2 were "no brainers" I shouldn't have missed. 1 I honestly did not know and the last I completely mis-read.
