12 out of 12. That was way too easy.

I thought I got the geography questions wrong but instead it was the number of female supreme court justices. I really only got that one wrong, but apparently my answer to the Senate breakdown question didn't register and it had me as not answering.

You answered 10 of 12 questions correctly.
See below to review your responses and compare results with a nationally representative sample of 3,147 adults who took part in our survey. For more findings from the survey, read "What the Public Knows - In Pictures, Words, Maps and Graphs."
You scored better than 63% of the population, below 23% and the same as 14%.

My grade was 11/12, better than 77%. I got #11 wrong, the number of seats in the Senate currently.

I got them all right but frankly, I don't think the pope question is important enough to include in the survey, not because it's the pope but because what they are asking about him is small potatoes.

The US Senate and the Supreme Court need a PR firm.

Two wrong: I was one short on women members of the Supremes; didn't have a clue what Eliz. Warren looked like.

Despite not getting 100%, I think it was an easy test - one geared to U.S. high school students. I was surprised, considering that the U.S. is a world power, that there were no questions about the Middle East, Islam, China, Russia.
