Sunday quiz

So this is floating around the Internet:
Some news audiences are more politically savvy than others, according to a new poll, with readers of The New Yorker and similar high-brow magazines being the most knowledgeable.

The survey, conducted between April 30 and June 1 by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, measured the political knowledge of 3,612 U.S. adults. Participants were asked to name the controlling party of the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. secretary of state and Great Britain's prime minister.

Overall, just 18 percent of participants answered all three questions correctly.

Let's see if we can do better.

Oh, wait. Americans-only.

That means I fail at reading comprehension, doesn't it? :D
I slipped up and over-skimm'd that bit about yankees only too. i'm aussie, but i reckon that it is demos, condi. rice, and gordon brown - so you can exclude one answer along those lines from your stats if you want.
Okay, I'm not an American, but I do live in America, and have done for the last 13 years, so I answered the poll. :-)
