Constitution Day: For Many Americans, It’s Time for the Basics
"The American public is ignorant of basic facts about the Constitution. When asked if they knew any of the three branches of government, two-thirds (68%) of Americans said yes. One-third could correctly name all three; one-third could not name any.
Those findings, based on a new national survey of 1,002 people, are being released by the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center to coincide with the national observance of Constitution Day."
