One Third Of Americans Have No Idea What the World Cup Is

I remain convinced that all that separates us as Americans as a nation from total anarchy is ten minutes without electricity and the cancellation of Two and a Half Men. I have twenty semiautomatic rifles, 500 gallons of fresh water, and a year’s worth of food in the basement for the day when this happens. You should have the same.

A new Rasmussen Reports nationwide telephone survey finds that 66% of Adults correctly identify soccer, or football as it’s known outside the United States, as the sport played in the World Cup competition. However, three percent (3%) say it’s all about baseball, and one percent (1%) each think the international teams will be playing tennis, hockey or golf. Twenty-eight percent (28%) are not sure what sport will be played.

A third of Americans have no idea what sport is played in the World Cup. When you wonder why signs reading “DO NOT EAT” are placed on bins full of broken glass at recycling centers, remember this, because 33 percent of Americans mistake it for hard candy.
