The Pew Research Center administered the News IQ Quiz that you just took to 1,002 American adults, June 22-25, 2017. The results:
- Only 10% scored 10/10, correctly answering all 10 questions.
- Substantial age differences in knowledge about Washington figures like Tillerson, Gorsuch, and Mueller, with older Americans more knowledgeable.
- Modest partisan differences: the average number of correct answers was 5.7 for Republicans/Leaning Republican, vs. 5.5 for Democrats/Leaning Democrat.
- College graduates performed better than those with less education: the average number of correct answers was 6.9 for those with a bachelor’s degree or more education; 5.2 for those with some college experience; 4.3 for those with no more than a high school diploma.
