THE 4PM POLL: Americans Suddenly Got Way Smarter. Why?

Americans’ knowledge of the U.S. political system has improved dramatically in recent years, according to a new study.

  • The annual survey conducted by the Annenberg Public Policy Center found Americans are significantly better at naming all three branches of government: In 2021, 56% of Americans are able to do so as compared with only 33% in 2006.
  • In 2016, most Americans could only name one freedom guaranteed by the First Amendment. Now, more than half of respondents can name at least three.
