(CHRISTIANPOST) — Results from a Pew Research Center study released Tuesday show that Americans are more likely to correctly identify the Star of David as being associated with Judaism than they are to associate Twitter’s logo with the social media website.

The survey was part of the center’s News IQ quiz, which is conducted at least biannually, and it tested the news and political knowledge of 1,041 American adults. For the second time in the quiz series’ history, researchers asked questions associated with visual images – symbols, pictures, maps and graphs.

Those surveyed correctly identified the Star of David more than any other image in the quiz, with 87 percent of participants correctly associating it with Judaism and picking it out of a group of four religious symbols.
