Skip to comments.Survey: One-third of Americans believe in UFOs (Most think Obama can handle space aliens better )
Posted on 07/13/2012 9:46:37 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
A new survey finds that 80 million Americans, or 36 percent of the population, believe UFOs are real. One in 10 respondents say they have personally witnessed an alien spaceship. And if aliens were to invade the country sometime in the next four years, 65 percent of survey respondents said President Obama would be better suited for handling the invasion than Republican presidential candidate Romney.
The market research company Kelton Research conducted the survey by polling a random nationwide sample of 1,114 Americans ages 18 and older, who were representative of the demographics of the nation as a whole. The survey was commissioned by the National Geographic Channel to promote its new series "Chasing UFOs."
To the question of whether they believe aliens have visited Earth, 36 percent of Americans who were surveyed said they do, 48 percent aren't sure, and 17 percent said they don't believe so. More than three in four Americans (77 percent) think there are signs that suggest aliens have visited the Earth, whether or not they've made up their minds about the question.
The results align with other modern studies of UFO belief. For example, a 2008 survey of 1,003 adult Americans conducted by Scripps Howard News Service and Ohio University also found that a third of adults believe it's either very likely or somewhat likely that intelligent aliens from space have visited our planet. One in 12 said they had personally seen a mysterious object in the sky that they thought might have been an alien spaceship.
More surprisingly, the new NatGeo survey found that a whopping 79 percent of people think the government has kept information about UFOs a secret from the public, and more than half (55 percent) believe there are real-life "Men in Black"-style agents who threaten people who spot UFOs.

On a morning Country Music show they were talking about this poll. Someone said, “He can’t even handle the aliens from down South.”
Someone needs to create a graphic of obama bowing to a grey...
Two thirds do not which for some reason gives me hope.
Gotta be real careful dealing with aliens. Obama may not be the best choice as First Contact. For instance, among humans, in the USA making a circle with your index finger and thumb means “OK”, while to a Russian it’s a rude insult.
Bowing deeply before an alien may mean, “devour me now I am ready”.
Since the beginning of time, where are the little green people when we need them the most?
Guess these folks don’t have anything better to do than worry about aliens from outer space.
Gee, I wonder why...
RE: He cant even handle the aliens from down South.
Which leads to the next question -— Would space aliens coming to the USA be in violation of our visa and immigration laws?
If so, how do you arrest them and send them back?
Ah Yes, "Reapers"
The Immortal race of sentient starships, allegedly waiting in Dark Space.
We have demised that claim.
I’m more inclined to buy into the O is a Reptilian Hybrid rumor than the myth he loves the US Constitution and this nation.
And I’ll bet there’s a greater than 99% correlation between those who believe in the Obamadork and those who believe in space aliens. Hmmm, while I’m at it, I’ll even throw in believe in human caused global warming.
Same groups, same lack of any logic, and most certainly, same total non-knowledge of science.
Bowing deeply = ready for the anal probe.
"I guess 'put her there, pal' means something different in Martian..."
(Most think Obama can handle space aliens better)
They figure he's an illegal alien himself so he should have common ground with other aliens.
Sure, he would surrender or talk, talk, talk until the aliens left earth in screaming pain!
Crank the engines Bleep-Bleep, this world is uninhabitable! Varooooom! off they go.
So when the advanced civilization comes to Obama and says... ‘You are not an advanced race of being, you slaughter your unborn in the womb rather than control your baser instincts. That is not advanced, it’s barbaric’
What will Obama’s response be?
