College Students' Answers to These Basic Questions Will Shock You

This video is the most terrifying thing you will see today.

A political student group at Texas Tech University released a video named “Politically-Challenged.” In the video students were asked very simple questions like “Who is the vice president?” and “Who won the Civil War?” and their answers were nothing short of appalling.

The student group that created the video, PoliTech, released an official statement saying, “This video is not a criticism of the school’s academics, but instead a bold message to college students everywhere to be more politically involved.”

The group added, “Could these students have answered these questions correctly if they were on a written exam? We believe so. But the video shows that political matters are not what’s currently on college students' minds. Instead, they are pre-occupied with useless pop-culture that is constantly being fed to them by today’s media.”
