For example, the majority knew the first 10 amendments of the U.S. Constitution are called the Bill of Rights (87%), and nearly 9 in 10 also knew that the rule of law means no one is above the law (84%). Also, more than 3 in 4 (78%) knew the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives is next in line to run the country if the president and vice president can no longer serve.
