Republicans Are the Stupidest People In The World

TPM has reported on the results of a Daily Kos/Reseach 2000 Poll of self-described Republicans which is not yet officially released. If this is accurate, Republicans are the stupidest people in the world:

39% of Republicans want President Obama to be impeached.

63% think Obama is a socialist.

Only 42% believe Obama was born in the United States.

21% think ACORN stole the 2008 election — that is, that Obama didn’t actually win it, and isn’t legitimately the president, with 55% saying they are “not sure.” This number is actually significantly lower than it was in a similar question from Public Policy Polling (D) back in November, which said that 52% of Republicans thought ACORN stole it. So does this mean Obama is gaining ground among Republicans? As it is, only just over 20% of Republicans will say that Obama actually won the election.

53% think Sarah Palin is more qualified than Obama to be president.

23% want to secede from the United States.

73% think gay people should not be allowed to teach in public schools. This position puts the GOP base well to the right of none other than Ronald Reagan, who helped defeat the Briggs Initiative, a 1978 referendum in California that would have forbidden gays or people who advocated gay rights from teaching in public schools.

31% want contraception to be outlawed.

    I wonder how that 31% explains the compatibility of such bible-thumping extremism with “limited government”…

    I’m starting to think that in the case of some people, contraception should be made retroactive.

    If there are a 100 polling companies out there, asking the same questions in different dialogues, arent you obviously going to get a thousand different answers to the same question.

    I don’t have a lot of confidence in the polls.  I mean really, what are the polling companies out there for.  TO MAKE MONEY.  If they can’t make money they can’t survive which leads me to believe all polls are biased toward the agenda they are trying to push.

    I sure as heaven and hell would never base my opinions or vote in any race on what other people are feeling emotinally at the time the polling company calls.

    The polling results are consistent with what Republicans have been saying. If you had 100 different polling companies, the percentage by which some views are held would vary a bit, but the overall results would be the same.
