Another story about how dumb Americans are

Headline: "Americans Flunk Simple 3-Question Political Survey." Who wrote that? A European?

Anyway, let's see how you all do. Here's the questions:

  • What party controls the U.S. House of Representatives?
  • Who is the U.S. Secretary of State?
  • Who is Great Britain’s Prime Minister?
Click here for the story, which includes the answers, and then:

How many of these questions did you get right?
All three!
Only one
Zero free polls

It’s anonymous, so answer honestly! Only 18% of people surveyed got all three right.

UPDATE - Yes, I got all three, although it took me a minute to think of the Brit’s name.
