A new survey from the liberal-leaning Public Policy Polling finds that 20 percent of Republicans think President Barack Obama is the anti-christ.
The poll also finds that a majority of Republicans think that the climate change is a hoax.
PPP recently surveyed voters nationwide on conspiracy theories, taking a look at voting blocs and partisanship on environmental issues, the Iraq War and a New World Order, among other matters.
PPP finds that 28 percent of voters believe a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to rule the world through an authoritarian world government – a New World Order. About 34 percent of Republicans believe this, along with 35 percent of independents and 15 percent of Democrats.
About 44 percent of voters believe that George W. Bush and his administration intentionally misled the public about weapons of mass destruction to promote a war in Iraq. About 72 percent of Democrats believe this. About 73 percent of Republicans say such a claim is false.
On another question, about 6 percent of voters think Osama bin Laden is alive.
Regarding climate change, about 58 percent of Republican say that promotion of “global warming” claims is a conspiracy but 77 percent of Democrats disagree.
About a fifth of Republicans and 13 percent of independents say they think President Barack Obama is the anti-christ. So do about 6 percent of Democrats.
