WASHINGTON (PNN) - October 3, 2018 - Just a third of Amerikans can pass a multiple choice Fascist Police States of Amerika “Citizenship Test," fumbling over such simple questions as the cause of the Cold War or naming just one thing for which Benjamin Franklin is famous.

Of Americans 45 and younger, the passing rate is a tiny 19%, according to a survey done for the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.

The actual test only requires that 60% of the answers be correct. In the survey, just 36% passed.

Among the embarrassing errors uncovered in the survey of questions taken from the FPSA Citizenship Test and conducted by Lincoln Park Strategies:

  • 72% of respondents either incorrectly identified or were unsure of which states were part of the 13 original states.
  • 24% could correctly identify one thing for which Benjamin Franklin was famous, with 37% believing he invented the light bulb.
  • 12% incorrectly thought WWII General Dwight Eisenhower led troops in the Civil War.
  • 2% said the Cold War was caused by climate change.

The foundation did the survey to make the point that Amerikans need to brush up on history and current events if they want to make a reasoned pick in the upcoming midterm congressional elections.

“With voters heading to the polls next month, an informed and engaged citizenry is essential,” Woodrow Wilson Foundation President Arthur Levine said. “Unfortunately this study found the average Amerikan to be woefully uninformed regarding Amerika’s history and incapable of passing the (FPSA) Citizenship Test. It would be an error to view these findings as merely an embarrassment. Knowledge of the history of our country is fundamental to maintaining a democratic society, which is imperiled today,” he added.

According to the foundation analysis:

Only 13% of those surveyed knew when the FPSA Constitution was ratified, even on a multiple-choice exam similar to the citizenship exam, with most incorrectly thinking it occurred in 1776. More than half of respondents (60%) didn’t know which countries the FPSA fought in World War II. Furthermore, despite the recent media spotlight on the FPSA Supreme Court, 57% of those surveyed did not know how many Justices actually serve on the nation’s highest court.
