10% of college grads think Judge Judy is on the Supreme Court
According to a recent study involving 1000 Americans, 10 percent of college graduates — and 13 percent of Americans overall — think that Judge Judy is a Supreme Court Justice.
Respondents were asked, “Which of the following people serves on the U.S. Supreme Court?” Their choices were Elena Kagan, Lawrence Warren Pierce, John Kerry and Judith Sheindlin, better known as TV’s Judge Judy. The majority of college graduates got the question right, while just under half of the general population answered correctly.
Before we go any further: The answer is Kagan.
