What Republicans believe

March 23, 2010 | By | 1 Reply More

A new Harris poll reports what our non-evidence-based-Republican-brethren tend to believe. At The Daily Beast, John Avlon reports:

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.”

Avlon refers to these poll results as evidence of “‘Obama Derangement Syndrome’—pathological hatred of the president posing as patriotism.”

    How do the Republican's get away with it?

    "They repeat the same thing over and over until everyone gets tired of correcting them."
