    In a survey released October 14, 2009 – just three months ago – the liberal-leaning Pew Research Center ran a “News IQ Quiz.”

    It probably didn’t surprise the Pew staff to learn that a “partisan knowledge gap” existed between Democrats and Republicans.

    But it surely horrified them to realize that the gap favored… Republicans.

    Here's Your Score: You correctly answered 10 out of the 12 possible questions, which means you did better on the quiz than 69% of the general public.

    Not all of their answers are correct, the Dow is closer to 12000 than 8000 right now.
    The current unemployment rate exceeds 10% which would make it closer to 12% than 8%.
    so in light of that I would have 11 of 12

    I got 10 of 12.

    Anyone else notice that the only question the democrats did better at than republicans was the number of those killed in Iraq?
