Most Americans don’t know or get it wrong.

Nearly half of Americans say the Troubled Asset Relief Program — the bank bailout — passed under President Obama. A further 19 percent say they do not know whether Obama or his predecessor signed the bill. Of course, TARP passed through a Democratic Congress and President George W. Bush signed it into law.

Funny that it was the Indies who got most things right. It appears that Dems aren't such intellectual elite, afterall :)

Here’s another study with questions that are relevant. Does it matter if we really know the depth of the oil spill or who the host nation of the world cup is?
