In this video, I take a look at recent and long-reviewed studies on the decrease in civic knowledge of the average American and correlate those with the rising number of students being admitted into liberal arts colleges and universities.
These studies have been ongoing for 20 years now, and have shown that not only is the average American less knowledgeable about the inner functions of civics, but college students in particular are disproportionately ignorant of how the system actually works.
No wonder so many of them identify as Democrat/liberal by default lol.
