    Most recent polls suggest that there's no clear frontrunner in the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. A new poll suggests that may have something to do with the fact that most people can't even name any of the candidates.

    About half of all Americans -- 53 percent -- could not name anyone when asked which Republican candidate they've been hearing the most about, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center.
    The rest of the "story".

    Pew. Heh.

    Other things most Americans can't seem to do:

    Vote
    Name the Vice President of the United States
    Sing the National Anthem properly
    Recite the Pledge of Allegiance properly
    Recite the 1st Amendment of the Constitution
    Name their local government representatives
    Name their Congressional representatives
    Name ANY of the Cabinet Secretaries
    Find New Hampshire on a map of the US
    Find most other countries on a world map

    Oh, and name the anchor of the CBS Evening News

    Well, considering Katie has gotten the ax, the answer to this really is I dunno.
