Americans have no idea what the 1st Amendment protects

09.12.17 08:24 AM

Perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise given endless attempts by the American left to block 1st Amendment rights in an effort to make the nation one big utopian safe space. But liberty lovers should be appalled by the results of new polling data which shows just how many Americans “can’t name any” 1st Amendment protections.

According to data compiled in the Annenberg Foundation’s annual Constitution Day Civics Survey, 37 percent of Americans don’t know what the 1st Amendment protects.

While 48 percent of respondents did realize that the 1st Amendment broadly protects freedom of speech in the U.S., most respondents were unsure when asked to cite specific protections for the poll.

Here’s a breakdown of responses:*

*The 1st Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
