Politics Daily: Americans do poorly on general knowledge Pew Poll

A new poll of general news knowledge released Friday found only 26 percent of Americans knew that it takes 60 votes to break a filibuster in the Senate and force a vote on a bill.

In Pew Research Center's latest News IQ Quiz just 32 percent knew that the Senate passed its version of President Obama's health care reform legislation without a single Republican vote.

The survey conducted Jan. 14-17 asked 12 multiple choice questions on topics such as politics, economics, foreign affairs, and prominent people in the news.
