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.

Why we need to bring back poll testing to qualify voters.

And no, poll testing is not unconstitutional. Poll taxes are.

Poll testing does have a bad history, as it was used in violation of the Uniformity Clause by the South in the Jim Crow era, amongst other abuses. But if it were applied as a uniform, standard 'multiple guess' test determined by Congress -- something similar to this poll, it would be the next best thing for our Republic since the introduction of the Australian Ballot.

We need this badly. Not to mention that Conservatives pass these tests more than Libtards do. :)
