Health Care Repealed? 8 Statistics That Define 1/4 of Americans

As far as 25 percent of America is concerned, the Supreme Court can stop debating. A new poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that one in four Americans believe the health care law has already been repealed.

Here's a look at eight more instances where the stat "one in four" describes Americans.

1. One in four adults read zero books in 2006. Flip side? The same percentage read e-books in 2011.

2. In 2011, 26 percent of Americans lacked health coverage at some point of the year, according to a poll by the Commonwealth Fund. The percentage equals approximately 48 million people. (A recent analysis from Avalere Health said that more than 22 million people could lose health coverage if the Supreme Court overturns President Obama’s health care law.)

3. A quarter of Americans were deemed binge drinkers in 2011. Apparently, North Dakota has the highest percentage--almost 30 percent!

4. Every day, one-fourth of Americans eat fast food. Additional and related fact: One-eighth of Americans have worked at McDonald’s.

5. One in every four students drop out of high school, a potentially scary statistic during a time when even high school graduates can’t get jobs.

6. Americans spend nearly one-fourth of their grocery budgets on processed foods. It’s the largest category on which we spend, and it’s up from just 12 percent in 1982.

7. Up from 15 percent last year, 26 percent of American sports fans track their teams on social media.

8. From which country did the colonists declare independence, and when? Approximately one-fourth don’t know the place or the year. (It’s Great Britain in 1776, by the way. Go tell your friends.)
