Just a third of Americans can pass a multiple choice "U.S. Citizenship Test," fumbling over such simple questions as the cause of the Cold War or naming just one thing Benjamin Franklin is famous for.And of Americans 45 and younger, the passing rate is a tiny 19 percent, according to a survey done for the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.Worse: The actual test only requires that 60 percent of the answers be correct. In the survey, just 36 percent passed.
But my favorite one: 2 percent said the Cold War was caused by climate change.
