The belief that Obama is a “domestic enemy” is widely held—a sign of trouble yet to come.



67 percent of Republicans (and 40 percent of Americans overall) believe that Obama is a socialist.

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."




The full results of the poll, which will be released in greater detail tomorrow, are even more frightening: including news that high percentages of Republicans—and Americans overall—believe that President Obama is "racist," "anti-American" "wants the terrorists to win" and "wants to turn over the sovereignty of the United States to a one-world government." The "Hatriot" belief that Obama is a "domestic enemy" as set forth in the Constitution is also widely held—a sign of trouble yet to come. It's the same claim made by Marine Lance Corporal Kody Brittingham in his letter of intent to assassinate the President Obama.

I don't know why everyone is so surprised that BHO has socialistic leanings...he told EVERYBODY during his campaign where he stood and on what issues, and was elected anyway.

As for the wingnuts, there are PLENTY to go around on both sides.

You get what you vote for regards,

Interesting propaganda video. Reminds me of the Jay walking bit on Leno. Too bad they did not ask McCain voters the same questions or some basic and obscure questions about McCain.

Imagine that, 12 for 12 did not know which party held the majority in Congress. That's kind of strange because if 12 people had guessed you would expect a 50:50 ratio. I am sure they only interviewed those 12.;)

The "home" versus "Alaska" question totally showed their biased hand.

I was also shocked that no one interviewed watched Fox news.

But wait, I am now confused, are these the people that many here claim are "elitists"?

We are just following the lead of those on the right here. ;) Shall we review the postings here? Better yet, maybe we should start a thread about the stock market's reaction to passage of the health care bill. Great precedent set there too.

As long as we're on the subject, perhaps you help me understand the change in heart by those on the right on the following issue. The previous President was respected, admired, and arguably reelected for "staying the course" and saying patriotic things like
Polls? You know, if a president tries to govern based upon polls, you're kind of like a dog chasing your tail. I don't think you can make good, sound decisions based upon polls. And I don't think the American people want a president who relies upon polls and focus groups to make decisions for the American people.

Now, this congress and President Obama are being vilified by those on the right for staying the course on health care despite a narrowly divided public on the issue.
Aah, never mind, its just "politics" as usual.

For sure. I listened to the FOX news cast today for an hour. Almost as entertaining for me as POTUS, but then, maybe that's where many here get their material so I shouldn't be surprised. ;)

Henry, I know you were not directing this solely towards me, but I have never cited a poll or used one to support any of my ideals.

I kinda follow that line of reasoning most of the time.

Just saw results of a recent poll in my local newspaper. The poll focused on independents. Surprisingly (to me), there are around 50,000 reg Rs here in PA; about 83,000 reg Ds; and around 48,000 reg Is. Yet O carried PA by something like 49% ... which would mean that a lot of voters who were reg I must have voted for McC.

Today, those Is who voted for O are disappointed in the "change" thing ... they don't seem to like that it's still just politics as usual in DC. Many believe the Fed is ineffective in governing. The short of it, while they are slightly more disapproving of Rs than Ds, 55% of them disapprove of both parties :-)

Is will be a major factor in Nov elections (at least here in PA where the Is represent a pretty large %-age of reg voters), however, the article states that Is are less likely to vote (disallusionment, I guess). It is also harder to judge how they will vote from polls because they tend to remain undecided until the last minute.

I think that the results of this poll (can't remember who conducted it), sounded unbiased and realistic.
