Americans admit they don’t know about EU

Americans Know Little About European Union

By their own admission, Americans are largely uninformed about the network of 25 countries that now comprise the European Union, or EU, as it is widely called. A landmark Gallup Poll testing U.S. public knowledge of the EU finds a remarkably high number — 77% — admitting they know very little or nothing about the organization. Only 3% claim to know a great deal about it. Furthermore, relatively few Americans — just 20% — correctly assess the population of EU nations relative to that of the United States, saying the EU is "larger."

For shame, America. For shame. 🙂
