Metropolitan State University students, in Denver, were recently asked questions that appeared on a basic test for 8th graders in 1912.

The conservative website CampusReform.org wanted to see if pubic school students were smarter now than they were 100 years ago.

CampusReform.org asked, "What are the eligibility requirements to be president?”

One student answered: “To be president you have to have a high school diploma, you have to be at least 25 years of age, that’s what I know."

One woman said, "Being a man is a criteria."

However, the correct answer is the president must be 35 years old, born in the U.S. and live in the U.S. for 14 years.

The next question was, "Describe the manner in which the president and vice president are elected?"

A student said it was, "based on a two-thirds majority vote," which is not true.

“George Bush put this motherf***** down the hole, so its Bill Clinton’s. He was more, he was his successor,” claimed another student.
