One in three Americans would 'fail citizenship test'

A survey has found that around one third of U.S. citizens would fail the country's citizenship test for immigrants.

The study, conducted by the Center for the Study of the American Dream at Xavier University, in Cincinnati, Ohio, found that one in three respondents would fail the civics portion of the test given to those applying for U.S. citizenship.

More than 1,000 Americans over the age of 18 were asked 10 random questions from the civics test, which asks about US history and government topics.

Of those questioned, 35 per cent were unable to answer the pass mark of five correctly. >>>

According to U.S. News and World Report, 97 per cent of immigrants applying for U.S. citizenship pass the test.



A May 2 Rasmussen Poll found that 31% of likely voters thought the country was heading in the right direction. Think theres any chance these are same idiots who couldn’t pass a basic civics test?
