PostSubject: Poll Shows That Republicans Are As Nutty As Ever   2/2/2010, 5:31 pm

I know it's from KOS but Research 2000 is a credible pollster.


The 2010 Comprehensive Daily Kos/Research 2000 Poll of Self-Identified Republicans

Some of the highlights.....

Quote :
Do you think Barack Obama is a socialist?

Yes 63
No 21
Not Sure 16

Do you believe Barack Obama wants the terrorists to win?

Yes 24
No 43
Not Sure 33

Do you believe ACORN stole the 2008 election?

Yes 21
No 24
Not Sure 55

Do you believe Barack Obama is a racist who hates White people?

Yes 31
No 36
Not Sure 33

Should public school students be taught that the book of Genesis in the Bible explains how God created the world?

Yes 77
No 15
Not Sure 8

So what's your favorite? Mine? Difficult choice,but I'm going with: The 57% of wingnuts that either believe or aren't sure if Obama wants the terrorists to win.

KOS just wrote.....

Just got this note from Del Ali, president of polling firm Research 2000:

We have received two threatening phone calls in the past hour. Interestingly enough, both calls conclude that both you and I are terrorists promoting a gay and of course ant-American agenda.

Got it? Polling Republicans and asking them what they think, then jotting down their answers, promotes terrorism, gays, and an anti-American agenda. It's fun being a wingnut!

Comments from conservative blogger "Little Green Footballs"....

Poll: Bad Craziness in the GOP Base, Part 2
Quote :
Apart from the insult-spewers, though, many readers wanted to know exactly which questions were asked, and where the samples came from. Today the full results from the poll are posted at Daily Kos, and the questions seem very straightforward.

And the results are disturbing indeed. If this poll is accurate (and Research 2000 has a good reputation for accuracy) the Republican base has an absurdly high percentage of wackos of all stripes, from religious fanatics to creationists to secessionists to conspiracy theorists. This is more evidence that the perception of a Republican base dominated by religious right extremists is grounded in solid reality.

These numbers are astounding. Social conservatism has a death grip on the GOP.

I mean — 77% of the Republican base wants creationism taught in public schools? And not the “intelligent design” type of creationism, but Biblical literalist the-earth-is-6000-years-old creationism?

77%?

Bad, bad craziness. This is why I had to draw the line and say, “No, I do NOT subscribe to this dysfunctional world view.”

Quote :
Disapproval of Congress, at 71 percent, matches its highest since 1994, when the GOP swept to control in a midterm rout of the Democrats. Americans by a 20-point margin say they're inclined to look around for someone new to support for Congress. And by a 13-point margin, 48 to 35 percent, Americans call themselves anti-incumbent rather than pro-incumbent – not quite the levels in 1994 or 2006 (when the Democrats regained control) but broad nonetheless.

That's the one that really irks me. Why the hell can't they impose their magical Christian gobbly gook in their own Christian schools? You don't see me demanding that they teach evolution at Liberty Baptist...

Conservatives were outraged at our January Poll suggesting that Republicans were batshit insane. But it wasn't so much the results which they challenged, but the veracity of the pollster and of us. Rather than argue that Republicans weren't birthers (they are), they tried to discredit the organization commissioning the poll (us).

Well, another non-partisan pollster, Harris, has reported similar results:
Quote :
* 67 percent of Republicans (and 40 percent of Americans overall) believe that Obama is a socialist. * 57 percent of Republicans (32 percent overall) believe that Obama is a Muslim * 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" * Scariest of all, 24 percent of Republicans (14 percent overall) say that Obama "may be the Antichrist."


he GOP base is full of all-out lunatics, motivated and fueled by Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and the rest of the neo-Birchers of the conservative movement. As long as they hold sway with the Republican Party, compromise will be impossible. They won't allow it.
