Its called the "Alex Jones" effect. TPTB want to know just how many Americans have been influenced by AJ types and sites like ATS.
Simply put, they're scared.
So who commissioned this
"This poll was not paid for or authorized by any
campaign or political organization"
Ok, but that doesnt answer the question, "who hired you"? It just says that PPP was not hired by a "campaign or political organization"...
And we can feel completely confident that this poll was conducted by a group of impartial professionals, yah right.
They dont even try to hide
"...some of the more bizarre ideas merit bipartisan skepticism."
“Even crazy conspiracy theories are subject to partisan polarization..."
So lets look at some of the topics covered.
44% of voters believe the Bush administration intentionally misled the public about weapons of mass destruction to promote the Iraq War...
Wait a second, its now a "conspiracy theory" to believe that politicians lie? WTF???
Do you believe Saddam Hussein was involved in the September 11th, 2001, attacks on America, or not?
Again, how in the heck is this a "conspiracy theory"? If anything, this was a lie perpetuated by government. Never mind, the idea that governments
lie is nothing more than a conspiracy... See what they did there?
How about, "was 911 an inside job" or "was Israel involved in the 911 attacks"?
Do you believe Osama bin Laden is still alive, or not?
WTF? Do you know anyone who believes that this guy is still alive? If anything, people believe that this guy has been dead for years.
65% of the respondents were aged 46 or older. I can almost guarantee you that the results of this poll would have been completely different had the
poll focused on younger respondents.
Also found it interesting that they wanted to know about people's thoughts on vaccines/autism, fluoride, chemtrails and the pharmaceutical industry.
Hey, establishment, we're onto you, regardless of what this poll says.
