              9 out of 11. All you had to do was give the more Progressive answer on each question and you'd almost certainly get it right.

              For example, the first two asked you if you knew what economists thought versus actual now known results or what your own impression was.
              There were several other questions like that. The sources cited on many were clearly Progressive ones too.

              On the whole the survey was pretty biased in its question design.

              For example, question 2 about economist's predictions on Obamacare: Those are now proved horribly wrong. Obamacare is a black hole of increased government spending:

              http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...et-report.html

              Obamacare program costs $50,000 in taxpayer money for every American who gets health insurance, says bombshell budget report
              http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...lion/14861405/

              Even the horribly pro-Obama "Factcheck.org" grudgingly admits it:

              http://www.factcheck.org/2015/02/con...ts-of-the-aca/

              Kominski stressed to us that while the costs associated with the ACA are not insignificant, they are a small portion of total national health expenditures in the United States. In 2013 alone, national health spending totaled $2.9 trillion, more than double the 10-year net cost of the ACA. The nationís total spending for that year amounted to $9,255 per person.
              Okay, not (by their estimate) the $50,000 proposed just $10,000 per person... How nice.

                More like where do you get your propaganda, especially considering the source/link and the slant of the questions. Take the misdirection of the question on "global warming" where it starts sounding generic, but like usual liberal dialogue here, no distinction between natural or man-caused influence, yet the answer drags out the old canard about CO2 and shows the blatant bias towards the ACC/AGW agenda.

                One of those quizzes/tests where one has to decide do a play the game and give the obvious sought answers to make their high score, or do I give the real answers and see how off this test/quiz really is?

                    I love the stupidity of "is it your impression that". Technically any answer you give would be correct as long as you weren't lying about your impression. I did notice the "that economists think" too. "Never mind the facts, what do you think our cherry picked economists thing?"

                      Exactly, and it's not just this questionnaire of course. Pretty much all multiple choice questions are always worded this way, and it makes no sense to me. How can you ask an open question with no right or wrong answer, and then say it has a correct answer? You're basically saying that if my impression is that american economy is failing then my impression is wrong, but you didn't ask me if my impression is right or wrong, you asked me what my impression is.

                      So when you see any "x thinks this way" or "poll finds out" etc. they are always, always, always flawed from the get go.

                      In this case, if I answered the question based on what I think or what my impression is I would get about all of them wrong. If I however answer what they want me to answer I'd probably get all of them right.
