Skip to comments.Obama's enemies: Republicans and the uneducated (Barf Alert)
Posted on 03/26/2010 7:47:03 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd
New research in the US suggests a large minority of Americans hold extreme opinions on president Barack Obama.
A poll by market research company Harris Interactive shows that not only do two in five Americans believe Obama is a "socialist", but one-third still believe he is Muslim.
A full 38 percent believe he is going to take away US citizens' right to hold arms; 29 percent that he wants to sell-out the US to a "one-world government"; 27 percent that he resents the country's heritage; and 23 percent that he is a racist and anti-American, alike. But this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Again, 23 percent of Americans believe he wants to use a terrorist attack or economic collapse to take "dictatorial powers"; one-fifth say he is doing "many of the things" that Adolf Hitler did; and 14 percent believe he is none other than the Anti-Christ. That's almost one in every seven.
Perhaps the least surprising discovery from the poll of 2320 adults across the US is that views on Obama closely reflect the respondent's political affiliation and education.
Republicans predictably view Obama less favourably than Democrats; but more tellingly, the less education a person has, the likely they are to agree with a negative statement about the president in every single category polled, without exception.
Independent voters' views generally fall between the two extremes, whilst voters with post grad qualifications are in some cases four times more likely to side with Obama than those with only a high school education or less.
Poll respondents' answers were weighted to bring them into line with population demographics. Harris Interactive says because the selected respondents were chosen from a larger pool of participants, no mathematical margin of error can be inferred

Ok, I can understand how uneducated people might believe some of the more outlandish stuff about Obama. But what is MUCH more surprising is how educated and “intelligent” liberals were able to believe much of the same things about Bush! Talk about willful ignorance, or delusional idiocy...
Did you ever hear that cut from some call in radio show where some lady was going on about getting money from Obama. Ah, found the link for it...
No he is riduculed and belittled by the "educated" who have nothing but scorn for those of us living between the coasts. The liberals want to divide us into groups the more esaier to control us.

Obama is and was a MARXIST in college.
Here is an interview from someone who knew him: send to everyone you know if you wish to spread the (blocked) word:
The full interview is devastating.
Too bad Fox News ignored Dr Drew in 2008 when he contacted them.
We now know the details of Barrys Occidental years.
He was an avowed and committed Marxist.
yup and the new one with the guy saying Obamacare is like Christmas.
Reflective of what? Longer, more-insulated, more intensive, and more dependent exposure to faculty Marxists?
About time sociologists and psychologists started looking into that one. Assuming that the correlation exists because "they're SMORT!" gets it all, is assuming too much.
Oh, well! Methodological disaster there .....
Come to think of it, that could be the case with Democrats ~ as high as it goes.
People really ARE uneducated if only 40% think Obama is a Socialist in mind and deed.
Here's his White House bookshelf as stocked by Michelle Obama:
Media Matter confirms it is a genuine photo. They just deny that books like "The American Socialist Movement" and "The Socialist Party of America" mean anything about Obama's agenda being Socialist (and if it IS what's wrong with that, the same argument used by Stalinists who denied that there was a Soviet loving fifth column in the US post-WWII).
Some of the Media Matters commentators think that this is library selection is for Obama to be able to fight AGAINST Socialist movements. Mmmm Kool Aid!
He puts a tax on the melanin challenged (seeking tans) and somehow his critics are the racists.
Why is that a barf alert? He called the Democrats who oppose Obamacare uneducated.
Breaking news: Shanikwa a third generation welfare queen has just invented a rocket that travels at the speed of light :)
“Still” believe he’s a Muslim? I’m more inclined to believe that now than I was when he was a candidate.
Count me as one of those on the list then. Though I’m a conservative with two masters degrees and Retired US Army.
Why, then, do we need to dump any education money in urban areas? They are obviously smarter and more educated, since they all voted for Obama. Take that inner-city school money and send it to the suburbs where the uneducated live.
