Public Policy Polling just keeps revealing how stupid, paranoid, and misled the American electorate is. Here are some results from their new national poll on conspiracy theories that aren’t true.
Democrats win! 25% of Democrats think Bush “intentionally allowed the 9/11 attacks to take place because he wanted the United States to go to war in the Middle East” (that is much more specific wording than previous polls so there is less “it’s fair to say Bush knew” wiggle room) and 12% are not sure. But a full 42% of Republicans are positive the President was not born in the United States and 22% just cannot make up their minds about where the President, who was born in Hawaii, was born.
And self-declared “independents,” once you take away the genuine libertarians and socialists and Greens and fascists who make up .01% of the electorate, remain mostly white conservatives who voted for Clinton once.
