77% of Americans think we should all be able to pass it, and 60% think it should be required to receive a high school diploma.
In the study, people did particularly poorly on questions that asked about the government's function:
• 75% didn't know what the judicial branch did
• 63% couldn't name one of the senators from their own state
• 62% didn't know who the House speaker is
• 61% couldn't name their governor
• 57% couldn't say what an amendment is
