I am increasingly skeptical of polls like this. Not because I don't think that Republicans are increasingly psychotic assholes, because they are. But do they really BELIEVE that Obama is sympathetic with Islamic fundamentalists? Or do they WANT to believe it? There's a difference. Or for another angle, are they thinking "What answer can I give this poll that will make it skew as far right as possible and put Obama and the Democrats in the worst possible light?"


Carl - I think the line between actually believing and wanting to believe is so imperceptibly small in this instance, it's pretty much the same thing.

If you want to believe something long and hard enough - you eventually believe it.
