Geography is Your Friend

According to ppp, of the voters who think Benghazi is the biggest scandal in American history (seriously people?!?! biggest in history???)- 39% of them can not tell you what country it is located in. 

The amazing part is all but 4% of them guessed.

10% for Egypt and 9% for Iran came in at the top levels.

Then came something really bizarre. 6% guessed Cuba. I am not sure how they would even come up with that. Do they think Cuba is a hot bed of fundamentalist Islamist extremists??

5% guessed Syria and 4% Iraq- neither of those surprise me as a guess.

And then there come the 1% guesses – North Korea and Liberia. Wow. Just wow. What did poor Liberia do to that guy?

Now to be fair, the people who don’t think Benghazi is the biggest scandal in the history of ever did not really do any better at identifying where it is. However, if you want to focus so much attention on an event, you could at least learn where it took place.
