    The Daily Signal:

    Numerous students at George Mason University, located near Washington, D.C., in Fairfax, Va., were unable to identity America’s beloved 40th president in the same classic photo.

    One student guessed Bill Clinton.

    Texas Tech University’s nonpartisan political organization PoliTech and the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, a nonprofit organization that promotes civic education at America’s colleges and universities, conducted the survey.

    They found that the students weren’t any better at identifying Vice President Joe Biden, but they easily identified Kim Kardashian.

    The American Council of Trustees and Alumni released a survey that found that nearly one in 10 recent college graduates think TV personality “Judge Judy” is on the Supreme Court.

    The same study found that “almost 40 percent of college graduates didn’t know that Congress has the power to declare war and nearly half couldn’t recognize the term lengths of members of Congress.”​

    But they can identify every one of the Kardashikunts from a single ass shot on their iPhone, so they got that going for them.

    Reagan was President before most current college students were born. I don't know many high schools that teach recent American history.

    These will be the same folks whose vote Hillary will need once she beats Sanders, will they turnout or will the air be out of their balloon?
