Polls Finds Most GOPers Think Climate Change a 'Hoax'--and More Fun Results!

The polling firm PPP decided to survey Americans recently about various wild or "conspiracy" theories and here are some of my favorite more serious findings.   Yes, there are also fun ones re:  Roswell, aliens, the deliberate  tainting our precious bodily fluids with fluoride, mind control via TV signals, belief in Bigfoot, the JFK assassination, and much more.  At least only 5% believe Paul McCartney is dead and just 11% think the 9/11 attack was an inside job.  And what's this about "lizards" running government?
--- Republicans say global warming is a hoax by a 58-25 margin, Democrats disagree 11-77, and Independents are more split at  41-51. 61% of Romney voters believe global warming is a hoax.

--28% of voters believe Saddam Hussein was involved in the 9/11 attacks.  36% of Romney voters believe Hussein was involved in 9/11, 41% do not.

--13% of voters think Barack Obama is the anti-Christ, including 22% of Romney voters.

--Voters are split 44%-45% on whether Bush intentionally misled about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. 72% of Democrats think Bush lied about WMDs, Independents agree 48-45, just 13% of Republicans think so.
