One Third of Americans Couldn't Pass a Citizenship Test

Here is a testament to America’s state of decline. Approximately, a third of our citizens couldn’t pass a civics test. The Daily Mail reported the following:

A survey has found that around one third of U.S. citizens would fail the country's citizenship test for immigrants.

The study, conducted by the Center for the Study of the American Dream at Xavier University, in Cincinnati, Ohio, found that one in three respondents would fail the civics portion of the test given to those applying for U.S. citizenship.

More than 1,000 Americans over the age of 18 were asked 10 random questions from the civics test, which asks about US history and government topics.

Of those questioned, 35 per cent were unable to answer the pass mark of five correctly.

A Wednesday, May 2 Rasmussen Poll found that 31% of likely voters thought the country was heading in the right direction. I wonder if these are same idiots who couldn’t pass a basic civics test.

At least there is one highlight from the Daily Mail: 97% of immigrants passed the test. Hopefully, these people value their citizenship more than the natives.
