Skip to comments.Poll: Majority of Republicans believe Obama is a 'socialist'
Posted on 02/02/2010 11:03:39 AM PST by NormsRevenge
A new poll of self-identified Republicans released Tuesday shows a large slice of the GOP believes President Barack Obama is a socialist who was not born in this country, should be impeached, wants the terrorists to win and only won the 2008 election because ACORN stole it for him.
The survey of 2003 self-identified Republicans, who typically trend much more conservative than voters who lean Republican, was conducted by Research 2000 for the liberal blog Daily Kos.
According to the poll, 63 percent of Republicans believe Obama is a socialist; 39 percent think Obama should be impeached; 24 percent said Obama wants the terrorists to win; and 31 percent agreed with the statement that Obama is a racist who hates white people.
Those numbers are just a portion of the results from the poll that paints the GOP as much more socially conservative and in some cases conspiratorial than most analysts would be willing to grant.
According to the survey, 36 percent of respondents do not believe the president was born in this country, and 21 percent think the liberal advocacy group ACORN stole the election for Obama.
Meanwhile, nearly a quarter of the Republicans polled, 23 percent, want their state to secede from the union.
Those polled also showed strong opposition to the expansion of gay rights. ...

Poll: Majority of Republicans believe Obama is a 'national socialist'.
There, fixed it.
By their fruits, ye shall know them.
“for the liberal blog Daily Kos”
If it walks like a duck.......talks like a duck....it's a duck.
That’s unfortunate. They’re not paying attention or they’d know he is a Communist.
I worry about Republicans who don’t know Badcrack Obamao is a socialist. Liberals lie, so it doesn’t matter what they say they believe.
Zero made fun of the Repubs thinking he was a "Bolshevist" at the GOP meeting last week.
I happened to catch the ‘Kos Queen’ on ‘UberDork’ last night making fun of the people who voted in the polls (which he created, BTW). If you don’t like the answer, Commies, don’t poll.
“Poll: Majority of Republicans believe Obama is a ‘socialist’”
“Poll: Majority of Democrats believe Obama is not ‘socialist’ enough.”
Well, he is a socialist. Words mean things. He’s never even denied it when discussing being called one.
I thought I said COMMUNIST!
They should poll us "Conservatives" as opposed to Republicans. I bet it would be closer to 93%! lol
He’s a fascist, for sure, but not a “national” socialist.
Sowell observed that both sides of the political spectrum point at the other as the “fascists” or the “nazis”. The left sees the right’s respect for country and tradition as “fascist”, and the right sees the left’s love of collectivism as “fascist”.
Obama’s not a national socialist. He’s an INTERnational socialist. He hates this nation and wishes to see it absorbed under some global governance.
I don’t,I think he’s a Communist.The only difference between Joe Stalin and Obamais Obama dresses better and he’s mixed race.
Other then that there is NO difference.
We’re being called “conspiratorial” by the “9/11 was an inside job” brigade. Ain’t that some sh*t.
Socialist - Communist. They’re pretty much the same thing.
I believe no such thing. He is a Marxist Islamist
The Left doesn't have a problem with Obama and his socialist/communist tendencies. They just hope to shut us up by implying that we are are dangerous McCarthyite commie hunters from the lunatic fringe.
The left is composed of mostly losers and wannabes who are too lazy to get the skills and education they need to do what they want.
Instead, they just whine about how life is unfair and try to get loathsome politicians to steal money from hard working people, at the point of a gun, to give to them so they do not have to work or think.
After this Health Care fiasco and other congressional garbage, it would appear that all Democrats are socialists or at least fellow travelers
In Dreams of My Father, Obama states that while at Columbia he went to “socialist conferences at Cooper Union”.
And we are conspiracy-hacks for stating what he admitted in his own book?
He is NOT a socialist.
He just wants a sense of fairness in our nation.
His beliefs are encapsulated with this saying: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”
Damn straight. Enough of this penny-ante BS and pretending that the Federal Socialists listen or respect the law.
We aren't welcome. Time to take our tax toys and go home.
