Test your knowledge of white working-class Americans with this quiz from the Nathan Cummings Foundation, based on the findings from PRRI’s recent survey. The quiz may challenge some of your assumptions about where white working-class Americans differ from white college-educated Americans.
For example, if 10% of white college-educated Americans say they consider themselves part of the Tea Party then how many white working-class Americans consider themselves part of the Tea Party? Head over to the quiz to learn the answer.
