Take the Pew Research quiz at

to find out.

It won't hurt, and no one will know whether you cheated or lied.

98th, and government data supports my "wrong" answer on defense costs.

11/12. Same question wrong as Isobars (I must be getting brainwashed reading too much iWindsurf). As one can see, this little quiz is having a hard time predicting the soundness of a person's political points of view.

Got 12 correct answers. That would put me in the top 1%, since one cannot exist in the top 0%.

Seriously, the Google phone OS? How does that qualify as political news?

Did you guys’ so-called “news” sources tell ya that this year’s cable TV channel and show ratings are in, and the top 12 news shows on all of Cable News were all Fox News shows, and that of all cable networks, MSNBC ranked 28th?

BTW, about that poll somebody (KC?) claimed proved Fox viewers are the most misinformed … sorry, dood, but that report has been thoroughly debunked. Debunking data and analysis sources include the CBO, the WSJ, Harvard, the Medicare Chief, and many more. You've been suckered again.
A detailed analysis is at http://tinyurl.com/2fqlno8 in the remote chance that any of You People are interested in the facts.

ISO, the only thing your data proves is that conservatives LOVE TV, I mean they really love it. Average FauxNoise viewer watches over three hours a night! Thats an insane way to spend your evening. If you live in the West and watch TV from 6-9, you should have your head examined. Ratings are formulated by a consistent, lengthy viewer, like Fox, or Facebook, or Drudge . Did you know the the national revenue for Olbermans show, was the same as O'Reilly, in spite of the 40% viewership stat ? why, because advertisers pay for demographics.
