Apparently, one out of every 50 people in this country thinks Mitt Romney is a cat.

According to a new survey by "Vanity Fair" and "60 Minutes", a full 2% of the U.S. population thinks that "Mitt" is actually short for "Mittens."  They believe his full legal name is Mittens Romney.

Another 2% believe his real first name is Gromit.

Granted, this was SORT OF a trick question...his real first name is Willard. Only 6% of the people surveyed knew that.

The most popular answer was that Mitt isn't short for anything, at 20%. 18% thought Mitt was short for Mitchell, and 8% thought it was short for Milton. 44% of people admitted they didn't know.

The survey also found that 23% of Americans wouldn't go back to school for more education even if it was free , 28% believe one billion people live in the U.S. (it's about 313 million) and 11% would kill their pet for $1 MILLION.

Good times, man. Good times.
