Poll: 1 in 3 Americans can pass citizenship testBreaking News
Only about a third of Americans can pass a multiple-choice test consisting of questions from the U.S. Citizenship Test, according to a new poll released Wednesday by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
Around 60 percent of respondents didn't know which countries the U.S. fought in World War II, according to the poll. The results also found that 57 percent did not know how many Justices sit on the Supreme Court; 72 percent either incorrectly identified or were unsure of which states were part of the 13 original states; and 12 percent believed Dwight D. Eisenhower commanded troops in the Civil War.
