judge_judy_320wAccording to CNN, a poll conducted by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni reveals that nearly 10 percent of college graduates surveyed believe that Judith Sheindlin, aka “Judge Judy,” serves on the Supreme Court.

Judith Sheindlin is an American lawyer who rose to prominence on the court show “Judge Judy,” which features her handling small disputes. She has never served as a member of the U.S. Supreme Court.

The poll, released this month, is said to show an alarming level of ignorance of America’s history and heritage. The respondents’ lack of knowledge of the country’s judicial system also applied to their answers on the constitution and federal government.
