Are we any smarter in 2012? 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair decided to poll Americans to test their common knowledge and found some gems like this one above of presidential hopeful Mitt Romney ;) (His real first name is "Willard," despite what he told Wolf Blitzer)

I hate to break it to you all but MITTENS has been the nickname of Mitt Romney around political blogs for at least 4 years and maybe even back as far as the Mass Gov position.
