Based on this, it’s hard to defend that notion.
12% of them don’t consider Hawaii a U.S. state. That’s one in eight.
I don’t know what else needs to be said, except that 5% of Democrats said the same thing. Americans in general are horrible at geography, and much of North Carolina is not the intellectual capital of the world.
This country is fucked, but pretty soon I’ll just be laughing around the clock at this.
