That was my thinking too, but it turns out Virginia leads 8-7.

VIRGINIA: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor, Woodrow Wilson

OHIO: Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James A. Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft, Warren G. Harding

If you want to be a real wise guy, if someone asks you to name the one President who was born in Delaware, the answer is "Rutherford B. Hayes, who was born in Delaware, Ohio."

Sometimes a question on these state quizzes reads like, “Bumblefuzz is located in the Obscurayankee Valley” and it is almost always true.

Yep. The movie was (very loosely) based on a historical person. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocahontas

Edit: My apologies, I think you're talking about the spelling. Foreign names that had to be transliterated into English often have multiple spellings, but the spelling used in the quiz seems to be very uncommon.
