One In Three Americans Would Fail the U.S. Citizenship Test!
Here are some of the questions that gave Americans the most trouble:
#1.) How many amendments does the Constitution have? Only 7% of Americans knew the right answer . . . which is 27.
#2.) The Federalist Papers supported the passage of the U.S. Constitution. Name ONE of the writers: Only 8% could name Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, or John Jay.
#3.) When was the Constitution written? 9% got it right. It was 1787.
#4.) What is the rule of law? It means that leaders have to follow laws instead of doing whatever they want, like a dictator. 15% of people knew that.
#5.) The House of Representatives has how many voting members? There are 435, but only 16% of people knew that. PR Newswire
