Hey! Ever wonder how the percentages of conservatives vs. liberals breaks down on other less- than-purely-political subjects?
Let’s see… According to Gallup as of 2008, 76% of democrats believe that the effects of global warming have already begun. Only 41% of the republicans take that same view. But what about other stuff? The following is from Fox News:
Democrats are more likely than Republicans to say they believe in reincarnation (by 14 percentage points), in astrology (by 14 points), in ghosts (by eight points) and UFOs (by five points).
Hmmm… And then there’s this about the CIA lying to Pelosi…
The Rasmussen Reports survey reports that 62 percent of Democrats believe Pelosi’s account. In contrast, the same number — 62 percent — of Republicans believe the California Democrat is not telling the full truth.
Would anyone like to buy a bridge? That’s like me as a conservative saying, “Yes, I believe ‘No new taxes!'”
And the beat goes on…
The poll found that a majority of young adults give at least some credence to a 9/11 conspiracy compared to less than a fourth of people 65 or older. Members of racial and ethnic minorities, people with only a high school education and Democrats were especially likely to suspect federal involvement in 9/11.
But this is where we’re at, folks. This is who elected Obama. More likely than not, this is your neighbor.
