Native-born Americans try to answer questions about the U.S. from the citizenship test

May 8, 2014 By Abraham 8

When immigrants want to become citizens of the United States part of the process is a quiz about our history and government. Guess what happens when lifelong citizens try to answer some of the questions on this exam…

How well did you do? Or do you not want to admit?

    I’m in! And so was my 12 year old. It was kind of, sadly, embarrassing to watch this. We really should know basics about our country. I don’t know enough, though.

    Keep in mind the folks taking this test are given the hundred questions and a study guide in advance. With the exception of not knowing our VP or the number of Supreme Court Justices, I can see how someone years out of high school might miss these questions.

    I got 4 correct. Those people that didn’t know who the vice president was must be the low information voters who voted for Obama.

    This is not an unreasonable test for immigrants to take, since all of us natural born citizens are tested on our history in school.

    I got most of these right and I’m Canadian… And David: you are an idiot for making this video about your problems with Obama…
