    Research 2000, MoE 2%, Jan 20, 2010 - Jan 31, 2010

    * 39 percent of Republicans believe Obama should be impeached, 29 percent are not sure, 32 percent said he should not be voted out of office.

    * 36 percent of Republicans believe Obama was not born in the United States, 22 percent are not sure, 42 percent think he is a natural citizen.

    * 31 percent of Republicans believe Obama is a "Racist who hates White people" -- the description once adopted by Fox News's Glenn Beck. 33 percent were not sure, and 36 percent said he was not a racist.

    * 63 percent of Republicans think Obama is a socialist, 16 percent are not sure, 21 percent say he is not

    * 24 percent of Republicans believe Obama wants "the terrorists to win," 33 percent aren't sure, 43 percent said he did not want the terrorist to win.

    * 21 percent of Republicans believe ACORN stole the 2008 election, 55 percent are not sure, 24 percent said the community organizing group did not steal the election.

    * 23 percent of Republicans believe that their state should secede from the United States, 19 percent aren't sure, 58 percent said no.

    * 53 percent of Republicans said they believe Sarah Palin is more qualified to be president than Obama.

    * 73% think gay people should not be allowed to teach in public schools. This position puts the GOP base well to the right of none other than Ronald Reagan, who helped defeat the Briggs Initiative, a 1978 referendum in California that would have forbidden gays or people who advocated gay rights from teaching in public schools.

    * 31% want contraception to be outlawed.

    During his appearance at the House Republican retreat last Friday, Obama explained that it was hard to forge bipartisan consensus when lawmakers were trashing his health care bill as a "Bolshevik plot". These poll numbers show that the gulf preventing bipartisan consensus extends well beyond health care. How does a Republican lawmaker explain to his or her die-hard base that it is important to work on legislation with a racist, socialist president who is illegally holding office only because of the help of ACORN?

    "This is why it's becoming impossible for elected Republicans to work with Democrats to improve our country," said Markos Moulitsas, founder and publisher of Daily Kos. "They are a party beholden to conspiracy theorists who don't even believe Obama was born in the United States, and already want to impeach him despite a glaring lack of scandal or wrongdoing. They think Obama is racist against white people and the second coming of Lenin. And if any of them stray and decide to do the right thing and try to work in a bipartisan fashion, they suffer primaries and attacks. Given what their base demands -- and this poll illustrates them perfectly -- it's no wonder the GOP is the party of no."

    Did the poll ask how many of them watch Faux News? How about how many of them still consider Obama a ******? How many still believe he is a Muslim? How about a terrorist?

    i had no idea that there is a psychiatric hospital that restricts its practice to republicans.

    isn't that the american way,though, to find a niche and fill it?

    kudos to research2000 for keeping the spirit of p.t. barnum alive and well.

    Oh, this is a joke. Obama a socialist? Republicans are not that stupid. Obama not a citizen? That's only a few retards. Republicans want contraception outlawed? Republicans don't believe something so dumb. Next thing you'll be telling us is that out of all scientists, only 6% are Republicans or something equally ridiculous.
