This is for those who think you can actually reason with "the other side": This is a legit survey from Public Policy Polling. It's so wacky it set off a Twitter craze of other fanciful ACORN conspiracy theories. I did a Huff Post roundup here. Now that poll:
The poll asked this question: "Do you think that Barack Obama legitimately won the Presidential election last year, or do you think that ACORN stole it for him?" The overall top-line is legitimately won 62%, ACORN stole it 26%.
Among Republicans, however, only 27% say Obama actually won the race, with 52% -- an outright majority -- saying that ACORN stole it, and 21% are undecided. Among McCain voters, the breakdown is 31%-49%-20%. By comparison, independents weigh in at 72%-18%-10%, and Democrats are 86%-9%-4%.
