A group called Public Policy Polling decided to see how much support there was for certain ideas in New Jersey:
We've been uncovering a remarkable level of anger toward Barack Obama in a lot of our recent polling so for New Jersey we decided to go a step further in determining how extreme some people's feelings are about the President and asked respondents if they think he is the Anti-Christ.Those crazy Republicans, right?
8% said yes. 13% aren't sure. Among Republicans 14% said yes and 15% weren't sure.
The extremism in New Jersey isn't limited to the right though. 19% of voters in the state, including 32% of Democrats, think that George W. Bush had prior knowledge of 9/11.The poll found that 3% of those surveyed believe both that Obama was not born in the U.S., and that George Bush had prior knowledge of 9/11. That would have to qualify as a very, very upset bunch. (Perhaps I'm being too polite.)
Beyond that 21% of respondents, including 33% of Republicans, express the belief that Obama was not born in the United States.
I've never thought of New Jersey as a hotbed of right-wing extremists--but then again, I never thought of it as a hotbed of left-wing crazies, either. This country may be in a lot more trouble than I thought--and I'm not exactly Mr. Optimistic.
The really bad news is when you go to the cross-tabs, and you find that 5% of those who believe that he's the Anti-Christ voted for Obama . (Perhaps this is New Jersey's Satanist vote?)
