The real estate mogul’s closest competitor is retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who tallies 12%.A total of 40% support for two complete nutjobs… > more ... (0 comments)

“One should respect public opinion insofar as is necessary to avoid starvation and keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond this is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny.” —Bertrand Russell
If you ever wanted to know what’s wrong with modern-day conservatives, just take a look at who a group of influential rightwing bloggers picked as the most respected public figures in the conservative movement today:
So let’s see. Poll after poll shows that:
and, (b) a really sizable majority of the American people want a public option:
Someone tell me again how passing a bill without such a popular provision like this wouldn’t be catastrophic political suicide for the Democrats?
This isn’t the lunatic fringe of the party; a majority of Republicans aren’t fully convinced that our President isn’t a foreign-born interloper!
Less than half of Republicans believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States of America, a new public opinion poll finds.
Only 42 percent of Republican respondents in a Research 2000 survey … said they thought Obama was a natural born citizen; 28 percent said they did not believe Obama was born in the United States; 30 percent said they were not sure.
The responses, which were gathered after several prominent conservative media personalities fed suspicion that Obama was unconstitutionally holding office, show the extent to which the conspiracy has taken hold in the GOP.
That only a plurality of Republicans were willing to acknowledge the president was born in America is nothing short of astounding, considering the preponderance of evidence that confirms his Hawaiian birth.
Someone call me the day the Republican Party gets some measure of its sanity back. Until then, enjoy the frothing mass of hate-filled, paranoid, xenophobic stew you’ve been stirring for 40+ years.
Overall, the new poll found that 53 percent of Americans view Palin negatively and 40 percent see her in positive terms, her lowest level in Post-ABC polling since she first appeared on the national stage last summer as Sen. John McCain’s running mate.The thing that jumps out at me from these numbers is that 40% of respondents see her in positive terms. 40%!? Seriously??
I mean, I can understand the reliable 20-25% of the country who think the duly elected President of the United States is a gay terrorist illegal alien Nazi who routinely drinks the blood of Christian babies and sodomizes the corpse of Jesus… But 40%!?
Were that to be taken as a representative sample of the total American population, that means that 120 MILLION PEOPLE hold a favorable view of quite possibly the most inept, dangerous and polarizing national politician in recent memory.
Could 120 million people really be so blind as to gaze upon the endless drama, prideful ignorance, rampant insanity and personified embarrassment that is Sarah Palin with anything other than instinctive disgust?
Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with people?
