Presidential Election Quiz Has Lubbockites Guessing

If you haven't been paying attention to the news, the race to the White House is well underway. And NewsChannel 11 wanted to know just how recognized some of the candidates are exactly one year from the next presidential inauguration.

"I think this is going to be the most important election and history. It's fixing to determine what this country's going to do," said Devin Ballard.

Because of that we did administered a little quiz. Most of the quiz takers passed, missing one or two candidates. But, of course, there were the ones who had no clue and gladly accepted some coaching from friends on the sideline. 

All the fun aside, for some this was a big deal and this election is a big deal, too.

"Honestly I don't think any Republicans or Democrats on either side are very good candidates," said Jennifer Hansen.

"I think it's very important that we know who's going to run our country and get to know what they're all about," said John Barbosa.

"If the election goes one way or the other there could be some pretty significant changes in our country," said Michael Trook.

If you're like most of America and are still confused about which candidate shares your opinions, you can take the 14-question candidate quiz below to find out.
