(Newser) – Republicans remain pretty stinkin' mad over Benghazi, with 41% of GOP voters telling Public Policy Polling that they think it is the biggest political scandal in our country's history. Just 10% of Democrats feel similarly. But here's the most interesting nugget: Among those voters who ranked it as the worst scandal ever, 39% don't know where Benghazi is: Some 10% picked Egypt, while 6% thought Cuba, for instance. Our geography skills aren't that great overall: Only 58% of all voters polled knew that it's in Libya.
