I got a 64.

I have only seen one of the TV shows and none of the movies on the list.

I can walk 5 minutes one way and be downtown or walk 5 minutes in the other direction and be in a cornfield, maybe that has something to do with it.

In my opinion, the older you are the higher the score you will probably get.

Not only is that a pretty narrow view of the mainstream, it's an insult to ALL Americans who don't fit his stupid stereotypes.
Very good post, but I think its both liberals and conservatives, pbs did this poll. I think both parties really dont like blue collar and that less effeminate america. Blue collar guys who know how to work with their hands and fix things, military guys ,police officers,fireman etc. Having a neighborhood with college educated people or watching tv etc doesnt say much about whether you are middle america. Anybody can just look at their zip code or income to see if they are "middle america" .

I graduated from college with a comp sci degree and thats just a ticket to student debt , not always wealth. I bet most of the wealthiest 50 people in america dont even have college degrees, I am sure of that in the computer and start up world. Its like that tv show silicon valley where the ceo pays people to drop out of college. lol

"You got 25 points."

I take these sort of quizzes with a grain of salt.

I'm over 60, and got a score of 20. Odd questions, I have seen only one of the movies and none of the TV shows, though I watch TV a lot.

51, virtually no effect from TV shows, movies, or restaurants

White male, age 66, college graduate, single-never married, homeowner in a town of 1800, part of the community of 25000 in which I grew up, lots of "blue-collar exposure"

I can tell you who won the 1962 Southern 500 (Larry Frank)

No regrets
