  1. We were surprised to learn that most people did not know that there was 100 senators. Meaning that most did not know that there was 2 senators per state and that we only had 50 states, thus we would have 100 senators (50 * 2 = 100). It was surprising that people could know so little about the country they live in.

  2. What surprised us most was people who are supposed to be defending our law barely know our representatives and how our government is run!

  3. I was surprised about how the people didn’t know a lot about the government and how many questions they got wrong. They didn’t know how many amendments.

  4. We were surprised when they told this one guy that there were 2 senators for every state, and he still did not know how many there were. He did not even know how many states there were

  5. What surprised us most was people who are supposed to be defending our law barely know our representatives and how our government is run.

  6. We were surprised to learn that not many people knew that there was 100 senators. Most people said answers like 50, 104, 23, etc. It was surprising that most people did not know how many states were in the U.S. and that there was only 2 senators per state.

  7. The thing that surprised us the most was that most of the people didn’t know how many amendments there were. They should know it since it’s our law and they give them, as the people, their rights.

  8. One man didn’t even know how many states there were! 104? We were also surprised that nobody knew any names to the Supreme Court Justices.

  9. What surprised us the most was that they were asked questions that they should not have known off the top of their heads.

  10. What surprised me is that most people had to guess the answers which meant that they didn’t know about our constitution and civics of our nation.

  11. What we thought we the most shocking was when the man said was 104 senators. As well as someone thought the declaration was signed in the 1740s.

  12. We thought it was shocking when the interviewer hinted at the fact that there are two Senators per state and the interviewee still wasn’t able to do the simple math and blurted out “104” where the actual answer is one hundred.

  13. I was very disappointed in most of these people. They can’t even name the amount of senators, and even when they are told it’s 2 for each of the 50 states, somehow 104 still comes up. This is why other countries hate us. GG.

  14. What surprised me was that even when they gave the one guy a hint by saying there was 2 Senators per state, he said 104 Senators, when there are 100. (50 x 2 = 100)

  15. Whats surprised me the most was when some of the adults guessed 27 for how many amendments are in the constitution. The number 27 is a very random number and those adults guessed which is very lucky.

  19. We are surprised that the younger people did not know as much as the older. We figured that since the younger are younger and may or may not still be in school, they would remember more since they were recently in schoo;. Also, we were surprised the adults did not know much about that government. Well they knew more the the younger kids but still. They should know after all its their duty to vote and stuff.

  20. we were surprised that even after the announcer lady told the person there was 2 senators for every state, the man said 104

  21. We were surprised about the amount of people who had a small amount of knowledge of the government. Current students know more about the government than adults.

  22. We thought that their answers were coocoo and that the answers were not even educated guesses. For example, in one of the questions a guy said Dr. Seuss as an answer.

  23. It surprised us that no one knew any supreme court justices. Also that someone thought that there were 52 states. Most people got most of the questions wrong.

  26. We were surprised to see how many adults did not know the answers to the questions and how one person didn’t even know the 50 states.
