Are You An Informed Citizen?

We are told that democracy depends on an informed citizenry. As Thomas Jefferson warned, in his letter to Edward Carrington in 1787:
“If once they [the people] become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves.”
So how informed are you?
The Pews Research Center has a short and quick 11-question Political News IQ Quiz that you can take. In a national telephone survey of 1,004 randomly sampled American adults who’ve taken the quiz, only 2% correctly answered all 11 questions.

i missed obesity, medicare and coal coal still provides electricity that sort of surprises me. i thought we had gone nuclear several years back. and only 25% obesity that number seems awfully low.

I am in great company… Only missed the obesity question.
Moochelle wolfing down tamales at the White House Cinco de Mayo celebration has clouded my judgement.

I missed 2 also. 🙁 The obesity and medicare questions. I generally do not watch news programs or read newspapers. I get most of my information from radio and internet blogs.
