Elon University released a study earlier this month with an analysis of the levels of voter knowledge of state and federal politics. It revealed that only 17% of those polled could identify the position held by their state senator and only 22% could identify the position held their state representative when shown their names. Additionally, only 11% could identify NCGA Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger's job when given his name.
