Politics just go right past some people

The Polling Company has found that Americans don't really know that much about the filibuster. When asked what it was 61% of people had no idea.
When given a closed list:
68% knew from the list it was a legislative procedure
21% gave 'I don't know'
4% decided it was a medical procedure
2% thought it was a Sports Team
2% thought it was some sort of appliance
1% went with a racehorse
1% believed it was a sandwich

That makes me wonder about NZers understanding of our system. How many people would be able to name the stages a bill takes through the House? Or what must Ministers do when asked questions? (address it, not neccessarily answer it) Or the understanding of MMP?
