(Shocking New) Poll: What Republicans believe
MSNBC ^ | February 2, 2010

Posted on 02/02/2010 2:33:54 PM PST by Zakeet

A new Research 2000 poll of more than 2,000 Republicans, conducted for the liberal blog Daily Kos, has some eyebrow-raising findings:

TOPICS: Front Page News; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: kos; poll; republicians

There are many more interesting things in the POLL. Furthermore, the numbers become even more terrifying to the MSM when you consider the respondents who were "Not Sure."

The numbers seem a little low, but I’m confident they will all increase as 2010 moves along.

“53% believe Sarah Palin is more qualified to be president than Obama is”

WAY too low...

•63% of them believe President Obama is a socialist

No way are you going to convince me that 37% of Republicans are that stupid!

Obviously biased. Must have only polled RINOs. I think anything less than 99.99% shows flawed methodology.

Remember the polls showing that something like a 1/3 of the Democrats believed that Karl Rove dynamited the World Trade Center and then raped and killed Paul Wellstone?

Where have these MSNBC people been? Living in a cave?

You could find out all that just googling "obama" and reading the subject lines.

Of course Republican agree with most of that...if they didn't they'd be deomcrats.

My responses:

63% of them believe President Obama is a socialist - YES, though Socialist might be too mild.

53% believe Sarah Palin is more qualified to be president than Obama is. YES. Of course she is.

39% believe he should be impeached - Not sure he’s done anything impeachable yet. Moronic, dangerous policies are not “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Besides, Joe Biden would become POTUS. Even worse, he might well be declared mentally incompetent making Pelosi POTUS. (Note to self: Pray for Obama’s safety tonight)

36% believe he wasn’t born in the United States - I believe he probably was born in the USA, but I’m only about 64% sure.

31% believe the president hates white people - I’m not sure he hates all white people, but he has many very racist ideas and uses race baiting to push his Statist policies.

24% believe the president wants the terrorists to win - He sure acts like it, sometimes. I’d say it is more like he is rooting for a draw.

23% believe their state should secede from the union - My state is more liberal than most, so I would not want this, as it would only make things worse.

Really, I think most people would be shocked to see
what Democrats believe.

96% of democrats believe Obama is not socialistic enough.

75% of democrats believe george Bush
responsible for 9-11.

59% of democrats think Karl Rove can control the weather.

97% of democrats think Helen thomas is a great journalist.

85% of democrats would institute Martial law and
re-educate your children.

89% of democrat children would turn their own parents
in to the EPA.

See, anyone can come up with a list.

Do you remember the old SNL sketch with Eddie Murphy as a militant reggae artist? Reminds me of BO.

Eddie sings: "(we got to) KILL all the WHITE PEOPLE! (just let them buy my record first)"

Genius. 30 years too soon. Who'dve thunk it?

Well, one thing I have noticed.

The New York Times hires the stupidest possible conservatives to be their conservative columnists. But the Wall Street Journal hires the stupidest possible liberal to be their liberal columnist.

So maybe the Daily Kos is out to prove a point here.

For the first two beliefs I am with the majority, and for the remaining I am in the minority. So am I still a Republican? or just a consistent conservative who isn’t running for office?

He is.

She is.

He should be.

36% believe he wasn't born in the United States.

We don't know where he was born, because he won't tell us for sure.

31% believe the president hates white people.

He certainly doesn't like them very much.

24% believe the president wants the terrorists to win.

He wouldn't lose any sleep if they brought us down a notch or two. Nothing he's not trying to do himself.

23% believe their state should secede from the union.

Any state interested in freedom would -- tomorrow.

So I went to the source and found out that 2,003 respondents were called up on the phone. Here’s how they managed to massage the numbers:

Demigraphically, the poll underrepresented the Northeast (18% of the population, 11% of the poll) and overrepresented the South (36 percent of the population, 42 percent of the poll.) The Midwest seems to have been polled at the right number; the West is a little overrepresented.

Viola! A skewed poll showing more fundemental Christian values. Not that this is bad, but it shows.

Then they polled 56 percent men, 44 percent women. Again, skewed toward a more conservative base.

Here are some other things not reported since it doesn’t fit the leftist template:

Practically all Republicans believe that marriage means an equal partnership between a man and a woman. Most believe that contraception is fine and women should work outside the home. The pill is not equated with abortion. I would guess all these questions are “poison pills” inserted into the poll to make Republicans look like fools or Neandertals. Since they weren’t able to do that, they’ll have to focus on the one-third that would rather secede than live under the dictatorship of the proletariat.

Actually, as soon as I saw it was associated with the Daily Kos, I knew there was fraud in there somewhere.

If there is a single extant truth in American politics at the moment it is that liberals have not a clue what conservatives really believe and hold to their own self-serving projections with the allegiance of received religion. What results is a political discourse consisting of an endless stream of accusation. It’s mind-numbing stuff. It’s intended to be.
