How Smart Are Americans?

A Newsweek poll asked Americans a series of questions and tells us what we know and what we don't know. It's from the summer but still interesting. Somehow I missed it.

Examples: Three-fourths of Americans couldn't name the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and over half couldn't name the Speaker of the House. All in all, sad.

Thanks to Karen Russell for pointing me to this one.
