מפלגה שאיבדה כל קשר עם המציאות

אתר הבלוג השמאלני הדיילי קוס החליט להוציא קצת כסף ולראות מספרית האם כל הבדיחות על הרפובליקים נכונות.

הוא פנה למכון סקרים מכובד ולסקור במה בדיוק מאמינים רפובליקאים.

התוצאות מדהימות ומובאות כאן בשלמותן עם הערות המחבר.

יש לציין שמכייון שהוא היה זקוק לתוצאות לספרו "הטאליבן האמריקאי" התוצאות גרמו לקפיצת פיוזים כללית בימין ( את התגובה של אוריילי ניתן למצוא על הטלפון שלי כרינגטון ).

התוצאות מדהימות  כ 40 % מאמינים שהנשיא אובאמה צריך להיות מודח , אין צורך בהאשמה חוקית רק תוציאו אותו מהבית הלבן.רק שליש מאמינים שברק אובאמה אמריקאי. רק 43% אחוז לא מאמינים שבראק אובאמה רוצה לעזור לטרוריסטים. רק רבע לא מאמינים ש אקורן גנבו את הבחירות ( הפרש של למעלה מ 10 מליון קולות ).ו 2/3 מאמינים שאפשר להגיע לגן ען אך ורק כנוצרי ( פלורליזם ? לא בבית ספרנו ) 

התוצאות היו מבדרות אלצלא היו עצובות.

OBAMA and AMERICA

Should Barack Obama be impeached, or not?

Yes 39 
No 32 
Not Sure 29

For what? Who the heck knows. Who needs high crimes or misdemeanors when…

Do you think Barack Obama is a socialist?

Yes 63 
No 21 
Not Sure 16

That's the power of Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, after one year of relentlessly claiming Obama is the second coming of Lenin … and Hitler!

Do you believe Barack Obama was born in the United States, or not?

Yes 42 
No 36 
Not Sure 22

We still have over a half of Republicans who don't think Obama was born in the US or think it's a matter open to debate.

Do you believe Barack Obama wants the terrorists to win?

Yes 24 
No 43 
Not Sure 33

Not just a quarter of Republicans believe this ludicrous premise, but another third think it's a matter open to debate. How do you negotiate with a party whose rank and file are that divorced from reality? And speaking of divorced from reality…

Do you believe ACORN stole the 2008 election?

Yes 21 
No 24 
Not Sure 55

One in five Republicans think ACORN is so powerful as to magically make 10 million votes appear. Another 55 are open to the theory. In other words, just 24 percent of Republicans have an even passing relationship with reality.

Do you believe Sarah Palin is more qualified to be President than Barack Obama?

Yes 53 
No 14 
Not Sure 33

Sigh…

Do you believe Barack Obama is a racist who hates White people?

Yes 31 
No 36 
Not Sure 33

I bet more people think Obama is racist, but were too afraid to tell a live operator the truth.

Do you believe your state should secede from the United States?

Yes 23 
No 58 
Not Sure 19

42 percent of Republicans aren't really patriotic. They pretend to love America only when they approve of the president. These traitors don't believe in democracy, in our nation's founding ideals, or in our flag. To them, those colors run. They are cowards.

Note, secession sentiment is MUCH stronger in the South than elsewhere — 33 percent want out, compared to just 52 percent who want to stay. In the Northeast, "just" 10 percent want out, in the Midwest, its 18 percent, and in the West, it's 16 percent. Can we cram them all into the Texas Panhandle, create the state of Dumbfuckistan, and build a wall around them to keep them from coming into America illegally?

ISSUES

Should Congress make it easier for workers to form and join labor unions?

Yes 7 
No 68 
Not Sure 25

Would you favor or oppose giving illegal immigrants now living in the United States the right to live here legally if they pay a fine and learn English?

Favor 26 
Oppose 59 
Not Sure 15

Do you support the death penalty?

Yes 91 
No 4 
Not Sure 5

GAYS

Should openly gay men and women be allowed to serve in the military?

Yes 26 
No 55 
Not Sure 19

Should same sex couples be allowed to marry?

Yes 7 
No 77 
Not Sure 16

Should gay couples receive any state or federal benefits?

Yes 11 
No 68 
Not Sure 21

Should openly gay men and women be allowed to teach in public schools?

Yes 8 
No 73 
Not Sure 19

Oof. That's some serious neanderthal action going on. Gays can't serve their country, teach children, get married, or even have civil unions. That's the GOP agenda for gays, which makes the existence of the Log Cabin Republicans that much more of a mystery.

SCHOOLS

Should sex education be taught in the public schools?

Yes 42 
No 51 
Not Sure 7

Should public school students be taught that the book of Genesis in the Bible explains how God created the world?

Yes 77 
No 15 
Not Sure 8

In all of these questions, respondents from the South are slightly crazier, and those from the Northeast slightly less crazier, than the average. In these two questions, the differences are particularly exaggerated. In the South, the sex-ed question comes out 39-56, compared to 47-45 in the Northwest. For the creationism question, it's 82-9 in the South, compared to 70-23 in the Northwest.

I must admit, however, that I expected fewer Republicans to back sex ed. Another big surprise:

WOMEN

Are marrigiages equal partnerships, or are men the leaders of their households?

Men 13 
Equal 76 
Not Sure 11

Should women work outside the home?

Yes 86 
No 4 
Not Sure 10

Phyllis Schlafly is crying. That looks a lot more enlightened than I expected, likely because the economic reality is that few people can get away with single-income homes. But whatever the reason, on this front, there's progress. But that's where the progress ends:

Should contraceptive use be outlawed?

Yes 31 
No 56 
Not Sure 13

Do you believe the birth control pill is abortion?

Yes 34 
No 48 
Not Sure 18

Do you consider abortion to be murder?

Yes 76 
No 8 
Not Sure 16

Over a third of Republicans believe the birth control pill is abortion, which explains why nearly a third of them want contraceptive use outlawed. This is so wingnutty, it's hardly believable. But it's true, just a bare majority oppose outlawing contraceptives.

What we didn't ask was whether the 76 percent who consider abortion to be murder would advocate executions for women who have them. Since 91 percent of respondents support the death penalty.

One last question:

Do you believe that the only way for an individual to go to heaven is though Jesus Christ, or can one make it to heaven through another faith?

Christ 67 
Other 15 
Not Sure 18

Two-thirds of Republicans assume anyone that is not a Christian is going to hell. It certainly makes it easier for them to dehumanize their enemies, either real or perceived.
