Question 15 Answer


By: J.J. Jackson

Q: The United States is what form of government?
A. A Republican government
If you said “Democracy” do NOT give your self a point because it is clearly stated in the USC Article IV, Section 4: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.

How did you fare? In 1996 when I originally gave this test to 50 people (21 “Conservatives”, 13 “Moderates”,
15 “Liberals”) the following percentages answered correctly:
Total Respondants: 40% (20)
“Conservatives” 90% (19)
“Moderates” 8% (1)
“Liberals” 0% (0)

What were some of the wrong answers?
Democracy (of course it seems so obvious)
Socialistic (close but not quite)
