No, this isn’t an Onion headline. Yes, it is yet another poll that shows Republicans are out of their fucking minds.
On the heels of health care, a new Harris poll reveals Republican attitudes about Obama: Two-thirds think he’s a socialist, 57 percent a Muslim—and 24 percent say “he may be the Antichrist.”
In fairness, that question was clearly designed to make conservatives look bad. I mean, it’s completely possible that Obama may be the Antichrist. Has anyone thoroughly checked him for the Mark of the Beast? How can really we be sure?
Other findings of the Harris poll, due out tomorrow, include:
- 67 percent of Republicans (and 40 percent of Americans overall) believe that Obama is a socialist
- 45 percent of Republicans (25 percent overall) agree with the Birthers in their belief that Obama was “not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president”
- 38 percent of Republicans (20 percent overall) say that Obama is “doing many of the things that Hitler did”
I’m surprised that only about half of the polled Goopers are birthers — that feels low to me.
But we shouldn’t be surprised that nearly 40% think he’s the second coming of Adolf Hitler, since elected Republicans and clowns like Glenn Beck and the Pantload make the comparison often.
Nice party you’ve got there, GOP.
