Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

College (civic) knowledge

This article describes a study (no link) undertaken by this professor. The results are heartening for those who worry about college students’ civic knowledge: many more know the name of their member of Congress than of the latest American Idol. The bad news is that, to the extent that the engagement is web-related, it seems to be much more oriented to Democrats and liberal causes than to Republicans and conservative causes.

Update: If you want to drink out of the half-full glass, here are some vaguely leftish curmudgeonly fulminations from across the Atlantic. Hat tip: Mere Commenter David Mills.
