New Harris Poll Shows Republicans Are Stupid

Think back to February 3rd, 2010. Bill O'Reilly said this:
The radical-loon Web site Daily Kos has a new poll out.What O'Reilly said is that the Daily Kos poll was rigged to make Republicans look bad, and that it is a fraud. He actually says the poll is a fraud. But now there is another poll that says the exact same thing, and even worse, done by the Harris Polling Company. Which is a nonpartisan independent polling company, that means O'Reilly can not argue it was rigged. So what does O'Reilly do, he ignores the entire poll of course.
Folks, this poll is scary, even more scary than the poll Daily Kos had, it makes Republicans look like nuts, and that is why the great journalist Bill O'Reilly is ignoring it. Here are some of their results.
On the heels of health care, a new Harris poll reveals Republican attitudes about Obama: Two-thirds think he's a socialist, 57 percent a Muslim—and 24 percent say "he may be the Antichrist." Yes you are reading that right, 24% of Republicans think President Obama is the Antichrist. Here are some more crazy results.
-- 67 percent of Republicans believe that Obama is a socialist
-- 57 percent of Republicans believe that Obama is a Muslim
-- 45 percent of Republicans agree with the Birthers in their belief that Obama was "not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president"
Yes you are reading that right, 45% of Republicans still think President Obama is not an American citizen. Over a year into his Presidency, which is just stunning, that number should be zero. What say you O'Reilly, are you still claiming that almost half the Republican party is not crazy, do you still call the Daily Kos poll a fraud, when the Harris poll says the exact same thing.
And that's not all, here are some more Harris poll results.
-- 38 percent of Republicans say that Obama is "doing many of the things that Hitler did"
-- 24 percent of Republicans say that Obama may be the Antichrist
Wow, am I reading that right, yes I am. It's 100% true, it says that 24% of Republicans believe President Obama is the Antichrist. That is insanity, and any person who said yes to that poll question should be rounded up and locked in a padded room.
This is crazyland, and O'Reilly is ignoring all of it. The poll, which surveyed 2,230 people, also clearly shows that education is a barrier to extremism. Respondents without a college education are vastly more likely to believe such claims, while Americans with college degrees or better are less easily duped.
The full results of the poll, are even more frightening: including news that high percentages of Republicans believe that President Obama is racist, anti-American, wants the terrorists to win, and wants to turn over the sovereignty of the United States to a one-world government.
This Harris poll backs up the Daily Kos poll, and they both prove that half or more of the Republican party are lunatics who will believe anything. So O'Reilly ignores the entire poll, because it makes Republicans look stupid, and it shows that O'Reilly was wrong when he said the Daily Kos poll was a fraud.
