If you think Obama is the anti-Christ…

Sarah Palin Kuwait 13b

…you probably like Sarah Palin.

That’s the latest from PPP:

We broke down our national poll from this week based on how the respondents who think Barack Obama is the Anti-Christ view the potential 2012 Republican Presidential candidates and Palin comes out the best by a long shot.

82% have a favorable opinion of Palin, followed by 64% for Mitt Romney, 48% for Mike Huckabee, and 40% for Jeb Bush.

Kind of surprised by the low Huckabee numbers but maybe his supporters think you don’t mess around with the Anti-Christ.

Looking at the numbers from another direction 21% of people with a favorable opinion of Palin think that the President is the Anti-Christ.

There’s not much doubt who the extreme right wing of the Republican Party wants as its nominee in 2012, and there’s not much doubt Barack Obama would get over 400 electoral voters if their wish was granted.

Do we need a name for this new demographic? Like Birthers and Truthers? Maybe they’re Anti-Christers?

    “Do we need a name for this new demographic? Like Birthers and Truthers? Maybe they’re Anti-Christers?”

    Can’t we just use the tried and true “idiots”?

  2. collapse expand

    There are lies, damn lies, and statistics. You have taken some statistics and made a non sequitur. The non sequitur of the month!

    Well aren’t you clever.

    Stupid people will believe you and think that because they read it on the Internet, it must be true!

    You liberals are such sheep.

  3. collapse expand

    Well, Christ would probably do a much better job than Barack, and his policies would likely be way more liberal. Certainly, he’d spend far less time, if any, sucking up to the rich and powerful. But I think “Anti-Christ” is a little over the top. Anti-President, maybe.

  4. collapse expand

    Or from another direction, 78 percent of people who like Palin DON’T think that Obama is the antichrist. But I guess that doesn’t fit with your thesis, does it?

    About Me

    I'm a freelance writer and blogger based in Brooklyn, NY. My background is mostly in politics. I've worked on the editorial boards of the New York Sun and New York Post. In 2006, I wrote a book, "The Elephant in the Room: Evangelicals, Libertarians, and the Battle to Control the Republican Party" (Wiley). I've also done my share of freelancing, for places like the Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times, Reason, and RealClearPolitics.

    These days, I'm interested in humanity's ever-expanding understanding of its own irrationality. Hence, this blog.
