13% of US voters think Obama is Antichrist
Seven percent of American voters believe the moon landing was faked, 6 percent say Osama bin Laden is still alive and 13 percent think US President Barack Obama is the Antichrist, Yahoo News reports. This is according to a new poll from Public Policy Polling, which recently conducted a survey on 20 "widespread and/or infamous" conspiracy theories.
According to the poll of 1,247 registered American voters, 37 percent believe global warming is a hoax. Among Republicans, the poll found that 58 percent believe global warming is a hoax, while just 25 percent do not. Among Democrats, 11 percent believe global warming is a hoax, while 77 percent do not.
Nearly a third (29 percent) of those polled believe aliens exist, which could explain why 1 in 5 (21 percent) American voters says a UFO crashed in Roswell, NM, in 1947 and that the US government covered it up. Fourteen percent, by contrast, believe in Bigfoot, the poll found. Voters are split (44 percent say yes, 45 percent no) on whether former US president George W Bush intentionally misled the American people about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. A vast majority (72 percent) of Democrats think Bush lied about WMDs while just 13 percent of Republicans think so. daily times monitor
