College Kids Give Stunningly Bad Answers to Questions Like, “Who Won the Civil War?”

By Joey

There’s no better way for a new student organization to make a splash on campus than to make a video that shows their own student body’s incompetence, and then watch it go viral for the whole world to see.

That’s what a new non-partisan political organization called PoliTech did on the campus of Texas Tech University, asking fellow students to answer simple questions about U.S. history, current affairs, and — of course — pop culture.

You can probably guess how well most students did in each category…

Of course, the video has created enormous controversy on campus at Texas Tech. People like political science professor Mark McKenzie say it represents a typical student. Others, especially students, are outraged at the potential impact the video could have on Texas Tech’s reputation.
