100% left with 3:08 left. What is sad is that the average is only 19/50. Although even sadder that the quiz hasn't been updated with the new senators, as has been pointed out repeatedly below.

Assuming these are ordered roughly by difficulty, I think Lindsey Graham should be much closer to the top. He's pretty famous and it's impossible to not know where he is from given the accent. I would also put Schumer/Gillibrand higher, and Reid/Heller up slightly as well. Virginia was easy for me but that might be because I'm from there. I know that each senator has had some controversy but I don't think it was big national news.

Also, looking at the results, Hatch/Lee and Collins/King sould be moved up a bit, too.

I suppose Tim Kaine is fairly famous now even outside of Virginia.

Level 73
Sep 14, 2017
Briefly famous. Generally, failed VP candidates return to their pre-election obscurity - I believe Senator Kaine is close to that point now. Heck, even successful VP candidates fade away from memory pretty quickly. Nobody seems to remember Agnew or Mondale very well, despite the fact that they served within living memory for a good number of quizzers.

People remember Agnew and Mondale a hell of a lot better than they remember John Tower, Howard Metzenbaum, or Scoop Jackson, and they were all relatively well known at the time. And Gore, Palin and Ryan are a fairly well known now, and John Edwards' moment lasted for 4 years.

Well, Gore and Ryan did a lot more than just be obscure politicians and VP candidates: Ryan's been Speaker of the House for quite some time now (which is a almost a higher-profile position than even VP). Al Gore went on to run for president himself, in the closest, most legislatively contentious presidential election ever, and then had a whole post-political career in environmentalism. John Edwards is more memorable for his affair and resultant campaign finance controversy than anything else at all, it seems, and as for Sarah Palin… WELL, we're all still trying to forget.

Can't tell you how many different ways I spelled "Massachusetts." Not sure what happened; I thought I was just wrong. I usually have no trouble--I guess all the accepted variations are just making me lazy when it comes to spelling.

I feel like the fact that I got 100% on this quiz is probably a testament to me paying attention to the news a *bit* too much in the past few months. Granted, I still had to guess on quite a few and some states I only recognized the name of 1 of the senators... but even so, 19 in July 2019 to 50 in January 2020 is a pretty big jump. Thanks 2020.

i might be misunderstanding but shouldn't the title be 'States by Senators'? most other quizzes with 'by' seem to be that way round, like 'African Countries by Flag', meaning that you're naming the former thing 'by' using the latter as a hint. it's not super important but might give a better impression to people deciding whether to click on the quiz?
