Just six-in-10 know Biden is vice president

In a new Pew poll, just about six-in-10 (59%) could correctly identify Joe Biden as the current vice president in an open-ended question.


More people (69%) were able to identify Dick Cheney as the vice president in a 2007 Pew Research Center survey, but at the time Cheney had been in office six years, compared with about a year and a half for Biden when this survey was conducted.

Another interesting finding related to politics (in a poll focused on religion):

- 72% know Democrats have the majority in the House

What does this all say about the engagement of the American electorate generally?
