Large Portion Of GOP Thinks Obama Is Racist, Socialist, Non-U.S. Citizen: Poll.

What the Hell is wrong with the Republicans? A new poll shows that, amongst self identifying Republicans, an astonishing set of beliefs have taken hold.

The numbers speak for themselves -- a large portion of GOP voters think that President Obama is racist, socialist or a non-US citizen -- though, when considering them, it is important to note that a disproportionate percentage of respondents are from GOP strongholds in the South (42 percent) as opposed to the Northeast (11 percent). Also note that this is a poll of self-identified Republicans, which means that independent Tea Party types are not included.
The full figures just beggar belief:
  • 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.
39% of self identifying Republicans believe that Obama should be impeached? For what? And more than half of them think that Sarah Palin is more qualified to be president than Obama?

When you start talking about wanting a president to be impeached before there has even been a whiff of scandal, then I think you have lost your marbles. And the notion of a Sarah Palin presidency is simply too bonkers to even contemplate.
