Everyone in New Jersey Believes in a Conspiracy Theory


According to a new Public Policy Polling survey (which, let’s get it out of the way, only surveyed 500 people and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percent, etc.), 33 percent of New Jersey Republicans believe Obama is foreign-born, while 19 percent aren’t sure. Ho-hum, we’ve heard this one before. But it gets worse! Fourteen percent of Republicans answered “Yes” when asked if Obama was the anti-Christ, while 15 percent weren’t sure. Maybe they were being facetious? Meanwhile, 32 percent of Democrats said they believe that George W. Bush “had advanced knowledge of the 9/11 attacks,” while 19 percent are unsure. We wish PPP would have asked about the coming panther takeover, something New Jerseyans should actually fear. [TPM DC]
