33% of Americans cannot name a single branch of government according to a new study by the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania.

The annual Annenberg Constitution Day Civics Survey finds that:

More than half of Americans (53 percent) incorrectly think it is accurate to say that immigrants who are here illegally do not have any rights under the U.S. Constitution;

More than a third of those surveyed (37 percent) can’t name any of the rights guaranteed under the First Amendment;

Only a quarter of Americans (26 percent) can name all three branches of government.
