The Level of Knowledge Among American Voters Is Inexcusably Low

This straightforward survey of over 1400 adults conducted by the Annenburg Public Policy Center, asking them to name the three branches of government--something that is a mere base line of civic knowledge that requires only about three synapses to be functioning to answer correctly--returned with the disturbing results:

Only 36% could name all three branches, while 35% couldn't name even one. Ye gads! We're doomed.
That's like having a mechanic not know where the engine is when these non-information voters go to the booth to vote. Calling them low-information is giving them too much credit. And to think that these are the people having the most children. Wonderful.
