Does the sample include the vast numbers of illiterate persons who cannot even read the test?
I’ll take the tact you took and ask why anyone would believe the Associated Press commonly known as AP, one of the blame America first crowd.
We need more money for the chirrrrdren.
Here is your one question test: Does you thank that Obama is doin the great job as President of all 57 states?
By cultural group
We are a mishmash.
Most others are not.
Homeschooling is illegal in every other country in the “survey”.
The intelligent are using contraception while the stupid are multiplying like rabbits.
Public schools are child abuse.
US adults are not genetically dumb. This issue is really about the corrupt federal government taking over public schools using constitutionally nonexistant federal government powers, for the purpose of producing low-information voters.
Low information voters then vote for Democrats and RINOs who promise such voters constitutionally indefensible federal welfare.
Ferst you dumby dem down.
Den you tellem: komunist good, free everything
Don beleeve? Free Gulag for you!
The ones who voted for 0bama are the dumb ones.
I agree with everything you said, but I also blame the fact that kids don’t read anymore. I hear them say, “I don’t read”, as though it’s something to be proud of. How can anyone have language skills when they never see the language being used correctly?

Explains how Obama got elected.
Oh come on! Wolf can make up his own facts! He don’t need no stinking knowledge!

They have the greatest chance for personal freedom because of the Constitution and they elect Obama.
Two thirds of Americans are mostly ignorant and some downright insane. Nothing new here.
The proof is sitting in the oval office.
