A new poll from the Democratic-learning Public Policy Polling finds that among those who describe the Benghazi controversy as "the biggest political scandal in American history," 39 percent don't actually know where Benghazi is located.

From PPP:

One interesting thing about the voters who think Benghazi is the biggest political scandal in American history is that 39% of them don't actually know where it is. 10% think it's in Egypt, 9% in Iran, 6% in Cuba, 5% in Syria, 4% in Iraq, and 1% each in North Korea and Liberia with 4% not willing to venture a guess.
