Those bizarre myths about Barack Obama

This morning's Daily Telegraph carries a report about a survey carried out in America about the attitude of hardline Republicans to their President. The results are frankly freaky and shows that some people will believe virtually anything they are told:

The survey showed that 24 per cent of Republican respondents agreed with the statement that the president might be the Antichrist, and 38 per cent thought he was "doing many of the things Hitler did."

According to the poll 67 per cent of Republicans thought President Obama was a socialist, 57 per cent thought that he was secretly a Muslim, 42 per cent believed he was "racist," and 61 per cent thought that he wants to abolish gun ownership.

It also found that 51 per cent of Republicans thought that he wants to turn over the US to a single world government, and 22 per cent believed "he wants the terrorists to win."

I guess politics in the USA is slightly more partisan and personal than it is over here then.
