This pair of photos shows a view of the crowd on the National Mall at the inaugurations of President Barack Obama, above, on Jan.
20, 2009, and President Donald Trump, below, on Jan. The photo above and the screengrab from video below were both shot shortly before noon from the top of the Washington Monument.

Here’s how we did our research On Sunday and Monday, we surveyed 1,388 American adults.
Arcan, un an après son suicide, parmi lesquels : La robe, L'enfant dans le miroir et La honte, ainsi que deux textes non fictionnels : une réflexion sur le speed-dating et une chronique publiée en 2004, intitulée Se tuer peut nuire à la santé. I don't recommend reading Nelly Arcan while you're still recovering from an unsettling read. Her prose is often beautiful at first glance; read the sentence over again, and you realize it's entirely coated in blood and pus-- impossible to get to the beauty.
In both cases, people who said that they had voted for Trump in 2016 were significantly more likely to answer the questions wrong than those who voted for Clinton or those who said they did not vote at all.
For the question about which image went with which inauguration, 41 percent of Trump supporters gave the wrong answer; that’s significantly more than the wrong answers given by 8 percent of Clinton voters and 21 percent of those who did not vote.
To many political psychologists, this exercise will be familiar.
A growing body of research documents how fully Americans appear to hold biased positions about basic political facts.
