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."

57 percent of Republicans (32 percent overall) believe that Obama is a Muslim 45 percent of Republicans (25 percent overall) agree with the Birthers in their belief that Obama was "not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president" 38 percent of Republicans (20 percent overall) say that Obama is "doing many of the things that Hitler did" Scariest of all, 24 percent of Republicans (14 percent overall) say that Obama "may be the Antichrist." These numbers all come from a brand-new Louis Harris poll, inspired in part by my new book Wingnuts. It demonstrates the cost of the campaign of fear and hate that has been pumped up in the service of hyper-partisanship over the past 15 months. We are playing with dynamite by demonizing our president and dividing the United States in the process. What might be good for ratings is bad for the country.

The full results of the poll, which will be released in greater detail tomorrow, are even more frightening: including news that high percentages of Republicans—and Americans overall—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." The "Hatriot" belief that Obama is a "domestic enemy" as set forth in the Constitution is also widely held—a sign of trouble yet to come. It's the same claim made by Marine Lance Corporal Kody Brittingham in his letter of intent to assassinate the President Obama.

This poll is the latest and most detailed evidence of the extent to which Wingnuts are hijacking our politics. It should be a wakeup call to all Americans and a collective reminder, as we move past health-care reform, that we need to stand up to extremism.


I don't really like Obama either but I know he's not any of what the right-wing fringe which has hijacked the republicans believe. He may be Bush 2.0 but he is not the antichrist, he's not a socialist, and he's not a muslim. Even if he was a muslim, does it even f***ing matter!? He's not a socialist, he's a corporatist. And he may be their antichrist but he is not the antichrist.

This really sums up all the negativity I see posted on these forums every day. No wonder I hate the 2 choices we have currently, they are all nuts.

I am about as conservative as they come and I do NOT believe Osama (Snip) is the anti-christ.... does not fit the bill. I don't like his politics, but he is not accepted world-wide, is not creating unity, is not producing a peace treaty with Israel, is not solving ANY of the world's problems...even temporarily.... nope. no anti-christ here.

Just a tool to lead to the next stage of things to come.

Wow, 24% is nuts. Being a conservative Southerner, of course I've heard and participated in some conversations about it with family & friends...but only joking, that's it...

(isn't the Anti-Christ supposed to be well liked, even loved/worshipped by most)???? I think that gets him off the list!

I don't think Obama is the Anti-Christ. He must be his Chief of Staff or Press Secretary though!


Seriously, arguments like this one, don't do anything to help the cause of the Conservatives, or Tea Partiers. I believe in the Bible, and in God, but I am not looking for the Anti-Christ or the Boogie Man under my sock drawer or in the face of every person in the world that disagrees with me.

The Bible itself says we won't know who the AntiChrist is, and that he/she will be extremely popular (that rules Obama out).

The press and the average person both need to stop pushing silly stuff like this, because it belittles the real problems that we are facing, and it puts a crazy face on all the Patriots that are trying to restore the Constitution as the Law of the land!

That 24% of Republicans equates to about 10% of the total population. I think we all know that 10% of the populace will believe just about anything.

Besides, I wonder what percentage of Democrats and liberals believed similar things about George W. Bush when he was in office?

I always thought republicans were crazy, now I know at least 25% are. My question is Do Congressional members count or is Michelle Bachman all on her own?

Not suprising results really for a poll where the participants were all Republicans...


I personally believe he's neither a Muslim nor the antichrist. He's just a man who is possibly in a bit over his head.

Did you forget that we are all godless heathens anyway?

I'll say this:

Obama might say he is a Christian... but I'm pretty sure he isn't.

By the Way... what did Jesus say? There will be many Antichrists.... could Obama be one of these many Antichrists Jesus was referring to? Well, all signs seem to point in this direction.

(And I'd like to remind Republicans that George Bush, Father and Son, were both members of Skull & Bones)

No surprise here.
It proves that propaganda works, no matter how ridiculous.
I wonder how many in that group would identify themselves as born agains. The same people that think evolution is fake, don't" believe" in science, etc.
This group votes against their own interest time after time, basing their decision on what the are told. All you need to do is wave the flag and invoke Jesus, and they love you.

Yeah, I'm sure that you guys would never resort to sensationalism and over-the-top propaganda and rhetoric. Nah, never.

The fringes of both parties are nuts.

Good grief, this is why I could never identify myself as a Republican. Sure, I agree with more Republican policies than Democrat. But my goodness, it seems the majority of them have left the station of sanity and are well integrated into crazy town.

I have lost an incredible amount of respect for the bulk of Republicans, particularly the leadership. Not because of these fun stats, but because of the way they have handled themselves throughout this entire process, shoot since the election. Yes, they got asses handed to them, accept it. The answer to regaining a majority and/or the White House is not to stomp around like a two year old. The fact that not a single Rep. voted in favor of the bill tells me it was solely a political move, especially considering the amount of Rep additions to the bill. The fact that every single governor that plans to contest the bill is also Rep also tells me this is politically motivated. There is no doubt that health reform is necessary, the current system just considering medicare/medicaid is unsustainable.

I am also tired of Republican talk radio hosts blatantly lying and slandering members of the Dem party including the President. Just an example, Michael Mendev had a campaign where you sent an e form letter to your rep stating that you do not want Obamacare and was stating how you could be part of this historic change, bring forth change, change, change, change. All he was attempting to do was maintain the status quo, so quit using Obama's slogan.

Granted, I believe that both parties are dirty and corrupt, however if I had to take a guess as to who was drawing checks from the insurance lobby, I'd bet on the Republicans.

Everyone knows that Obama is just a low level Demon.

The real Satan is Pelosi.

Here is one of the higher level Demons.

That is too funny.

Your comment reminded me, all morning I've been hearing that Pelosi's approval rating is down to 11%. Now honestly, how many people had a favorable opinion of her before healthcare? I googled her approval rating last year, here, she was at 18%. 18 to 11 in a years time hardly qualifies as a plummet, her ratings have sucked for a while, which leads one to wonder how she repeatedly "reelected", but alas that's another topic.

Compared to the percentage of ATSers who created and contributed to threads claiming George W. Bush was a 'shape-shifting Draconian lizard'?


I'd say the chances of President Obama being the so-called 'anti-christ' and the former President being a 'shape-shifter' are equal --- since neither anti-christ, nor shape-shifters exist.


The simple fact that those Republicans who responded to the poll actually believe in an 'anti-christ' at all does not bode well for their mental acuity, nor their perception of reality.

Everyone hates Congress...with the exception of their own Congressman. Its been that way forever. That's how people like Pelosi keep getting re-elected.

The sad thing is that 11% wouldn't even be an all-time low for her. At one point a couple of years ago, there was a poll that put her national approval rating at 9%. She had the nickname Nine Percent Nancy for a while after that.

11%, hell Reid's is at 8%

How in the name of everything that is holy, can anyone think that the people are backing this crap?

C'mon, the heads of the two houses of congress have a lower rating than the devil.

Where is the poll for Lucifer? I bet he has a more favorable rating than these two.
