Polling Republicans

This guy's promoting his own book, and I don't know the methodology or linkage of this Harris poll so take it with a grain of salt, but it's still eyepopping.
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."

A new Quinnipiac poll finds Republicans leading the generic congressional ballot, 44% to 39%, but if there is a Tea Party candidate on the ballot, the Democrat would get 36% to the Republican's 25%, with 15% for the Tea Party candidate.

Overall, the survey found that 13% of American voters consider themselves part of the Tea Party movement.


  • I wonder if this summer's recess will be the progressive version of last summer's tea bag, Fox-promoted, rage.

    I wonder if this will be the summer that good people stand up to the seditious goon squads and say "enough!"

    I doubt it, since the left doesn't have the 24/7 broadcast infrastructure to manufacture and promote such things.

  • I don't think so.

    Even if it was. The press wouldn't cover it, because if you're not white 50 and rednecky male you don't speak for all America.

  • Yeah. I was just spinning on a thought.

    Although, if we all showed up in tie-dyed tee shirts, pony tails and sandals... then we'd be dirty hippies and get the media's attention! :)

  • Yes, bu we'd be fringe... (unlike the 50% of Republicans who think Obama is a Muslim....)
