Do you know who the vice president is? The speaker of the House? How many U.S. senators are there?
Don't know the answers to these questions? If not, you're not alone. As the Yahoo! News Ask America van travels the country asking people about this election season's hot issues, we pulled a pop quiz on some of them, stumping many with basic civics questions.
Check out some of people's answers, and maybe learn something for yourself.
