    Cool

    29.
    It's incredible to see in the comparison chart that there were 14 people so ignorant as to not get even 1 correct.
    I'd like to see a comparison chart showing the scores by age groups considering how little 'government' is taught these days in school.
    I thought it was sad when I heard of a 'poll?' (with teenagers or young adults) asking if they knew who George Washington was. More respondents thought he was an actor than anything else.

    26/30 for test 1. There was 1 brain-fart and 1 where I'm pretty sure I clicked something different that the test says I did.
    15/20 for test 2. Yes, there's a second test on Presidents. I scored low because there are several questions that are strictly party related and I abhor political parties. I can't fathom how they are even legal. What ever happened to thinking for yourself?

    28. I didn't realize there was an amendment that was ratified at that time. I don't know why I got how Presidents have been impeached wrong (I know why but I should have known it.)

    I got 24, I must need to study.

    "How many branches of government do we have?" is a trick question, the correct answer is four if you count the news media.
