    Dear lord, according to a poll, up to 32% of GOP Primary voters think that the US military is actually trying to invade Texas:

    We also tested the recent conspiracy theory that the federal government
    is trying to take over Texas- 32% of Republican primary voters buy into
    it compared to 40% who don’t.
    Scott Walker leads the field among those
    who believe in the Texas conspiracy at 23% to 18% for Ted Cruz, 13% each
    for Marco Rubio and Mike Huckabee, and 10% for Ben Carson. Jeb Bush
    leads among voters who don’t buy into it at 17% but since he only gets
    6% with those who do his overall standing remains somewhat weak.

    I really don’t know what to say to finding out that nearly 1 in 3 Republican voters is so unbelievably stupid, gullible, or misinformed/delusional as to buy into this garbage. I haven’t been this rocked by a poll since they did one in Louisiana that listed 28% or so of Republicans there blame Obama for mishandling hurricane Katrina. Are we really getting this stupid as a nation? Do we have to find a way to get these idiots more informed? What is next I wonder on the totally-made-up-no-way-can-be-real stream of BS that will be pawned off on the American electorate by the right wing noise machine. And even if they do spread the manure, I can’t believe so many people buy it.

      The right wing base (both Republicans and the ‘I’m not a Republican’ crowd) would rather be called stupid than racist.

      In their minds (even if it’s proved to be bat guano crazy & wrong) everything that has happened over the last six years is:
      a) BAD for America;
      b) nothing GOOD has happened; and,
      c) Obama did it because he wants to take away our rights!

    I don’t understand where these numbers are coming from. If you follow the ppp link to the actual poll numbers, they are nothing like the first ppp link states. For instance the conspiracy folks are 59% of Cruz voters.

    Maybe they linked to the wrong poll? Or are they including Democrats even though they say Republican primary voters?

    The conspiracy question is on page 11 of the 69 page poll results.
