To everyone who is saying that a majority of the US being stupid is statistically impossible, remember that the rest of the world exists.

Although there are many, MANY people who don't have the brightest minds - it's just not fair I say the average American is stupid. The great deal of us are hard working people who did decent through school. Some are just misinformed or don't know how to identify the (some) dirty liars in Washington

Stupid and getting worse. It makes them all that much easier to exploit.

Politics in general are dumb. Rich people lying through their teeth just to get elected. Voting, where not even 1/3rd of our registered voters participate.

Rich get richer, and the dumb get dumber. It's obvious.

People can be as stupid or smart as they want based on what they put their time towards.

Americans are smarter than the average person in the world.

Obama's approval rating proves a good portion of the citizenry is rather stupid. How anyone other than his wife supports him is beyond explanation.

I'm sorry, you're all idiots. I'm Mexican so I can say that. Oh wait, we're pretty dumb too... I'd say humanity in general is pretty stupid.

Wouldn't the average American be neither stupid nor smart, but just average?


07/19/12 12:11 am

I never met a "average" person. There are Americans who cannot read or write who are smarter than I am. Pigeonholing people should be illegal.

Naturally, I think I am smarter than everyone. Looks like about 75% think the same thing. Since I know that makes no sense, I know I am still smarter than everyone. Bwahahaha

I think the average American is stupid going by the average grades at my school. I however, am above average so the above average are awesome.

@Drew41. Please make a list of the ways Obama has hurt America and post it. Maybe I'm just uninformed. Get your head out of your rear and read a book without pictures every now and then. Hint: Well-resourced books have what's called a bib-lio-graphy.

So true... America really is stupid. The majority cares more about celebrities than the betterment of America... If we vote Obama in again I will lose all faith in the people.!! Not to mention all the money in my wallet cause Obama wants to give it to the lazy.

@kirksten
You missed something.. A lot of people either don't make it or don't even go to community college. They just go flip burgers at McDonalds or wait on tables while I go there and be like, "hey Johnny! I'd like a number six with pickles and no onions. Oh wait, you added the change wrong.

Public schools don't effectively tach because they don't want to hurt the students feelings. Instead we want to make it ok for adults to live at home until they're 30 so they can go to community college. Unfortunately, Americans are getting stupider.

If the question is asking if the average American knows a lot then yes. If it is asking if the average American is wise, then sadly, no, not as much.

A person that is aware of their ignorance and does nothing to improve their understanding of a subject that would benefit their life is ignorant and stupid.

The average American isn't stupid; the average American is just incredibly ignorant is all.

The same person who calls others stupid calls the President of the United States a communist. That's hilarious!

The average American has to be stupid because Obama was elected President and he is a damn communist.


07/16/12 8:15 pm

no one of the populace should be ostentatious about their unwavering stupidity.

I think that the average American is smart, but doesn't apply their wisdom as they should.

Sorry I used a word 1letter longer. Also everyone on this app is on either a phone or a phone-like device. And by more productive, you're probably going to play WOW. I'm in high school and currently doing summer homework for next year's honors English class: 3 books w/ split journals.

I don't think all or most Americans are completely stupid. Just a good number are ignorant/thick headed.

Not necessarily. Don't make assumptions like that
