About one in four Americans suspect that President Barack Obama
might be the antichrist, more than a third believe that global warming
is a hoax and more than half suspect that a secretive global elite is
trying to set up a New World Order, according to a poll released on
Tuesday.

The survey, which was conducted by Public Policy Polling,
asked a sample of American voters about a number of conspiracy
theories, phrasing the questions in eye-catching language that will have
the country's educators banging their heads on their desks. The study
revealed that 13% of respondents thought Obama was "the antichrist",
while another 13% were "not sure" – and so were at least appeared to be
open to the possibility that he might be. Some 73% of people were able
to say outright that they did not think Obama was "the antichrist".

The
survey also showed that 37% of Americans thought that global warming
was a hoax, while 12% were not sure and a slim majority – 51% – agreed
with the overwhelming majority view of the scientific establishment and
thought that it was not. The survey also revealed that 28% of people
believed in a sinister global New World Order conspiracy, aimed at
ruling the whole world through authoritarian government. Another 25%
were "not sure" and only a minority of American voters – 46% – thought
such a conspiracy theory was not true.

At least some of the insane
theories suggested by the poll were dismissed by large majorities. For
example, only 7% of Americans in the survey believed the moon landing
was faked, 14% believed in Bigfoot and 4% accepted that "shape-shifting
alien reptilian people control our world by taking on human form". In
other good news, Paul McCartney will be relieved that a mere 5% of
respondents believed that he died in a car crash in 1966 and was
replaced by a double so the Beatles could continue their careers, and
just 11% embraced the concept that the US government knowingly allowed
the terror attacks of 11 September 2001 to take place.

The survey
was carried out in order to explore how voters' political beliefs impact
on their willingness to embrace conspiracy theories – it did indeed
find that the partisan divide that is blamed for many problems in
Washington DC also extends to the world of paranoia, aliens and
Sasquatch. For example, when it comes to thinking global warming is a
hoax some 58% of Republicans agreed and 77% of Democrats
disagreed. While 20% of Republicans believed Obama is the antichrist
heralding the End Times, only 13% of independents did and just 6% of
Democrats.

"Even crazy conspiracy theories are subject to partisan
polarization, especially when there are political overtones involved.
But most Americans reject the wackier ideas out there about fake moon
landings and shape-shifting lizards," said PPP president Dean Debnam.

Where I live, there's actually far more than 1 in 4 who believe Obama is the antichrist. In fact, my entire family except my sister and myself believe he is. As well as denying global warming exists and believing that the UN is trying to take over the world. Most of the rednecks here believe all those things.

Oh no...this isn't an April Fools joke. I wish it was...but too many people believe it. The only thing they believe more than Obama being the antichrist is him being a "dirty, disgusting Moozlum" in their words.

Thanks for the chuckle. I needed it. The article shows just how far fetched people can be. Obama the Antichrist? No that he is not. Although in my opinion he is a moron. His failures as president and his lack of leadership show that. Now back to my regularly scheduled Northern redneck programming from your a typical murriken. :D
