Who Is Joe Biden?

You'd think that most Americans would know that Joe Biden is our Vice President, and that he had previously been a senator.  Back in 2008, when Senator Barack Obama  (D-IL) was running for president against an old white guy named John McCain (R-AZ), I figured that he chose Biden (D-Del) as his running mate in order to have his own old white guy.  However, if a little social experiment by Jimmy Kimmel is any indication, some people don't know the V.P. from a hole in the wall, even when he pays a visit to their local area.  From The Washington Free Beacon:
Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel was so irked by the traffic congestion caused by Joe Biden’s visit to Los Angeles that he decided to find out how much Americans really know about the vice president.
A select group of Americans walking along Hollywood Boulevard were asked one simple question: “Who is Joe Biden?”
Here's the video, full of hilarious, mostly wrong answers:

Did any of these people vote in 2008 or 2012?  If so, did they even bother to look at the name appearing on the ballot with that of Barack Obama?
