Conspiracy Theory Poll Results

On our national poll this week we took the opportunity to poll 20 
widespread and/or infamous conspiracy theories.  Many of these theories 
are well known to the public, others perhaps to just the darker corners 
of the internet.  Here’s what we found:

-          37% of voters believe global warming is a hoax, 51% do not. 
Republicans say global warming is a hoax by a 58-25 margin, Democrats 
disagree 11-77, and Independents are more split at  41-51. 61% of Romney 
voters believe global warming is a hoax

-          6% of voters believe Osama bin Laden is still alive

-          21% of voters say a UFO crashed in Roswell, NM in 1947 and 
the US government covered it up. More Romney voters (27%) than Obama 
voters (16%) believe in a UFO coverup

-          28% of voters believe secretive power elite with a globalist 
agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an 
authoritarian world government, or New World Order.  A plurality of 
Romney voters (38%) believe in the New World Order compared to 35% who don’t

-          28% of voters believe Saddam Hussein was involved in the 9/11 
attacks.  36% of Romney voters believe Saddam Hussein was involved in 
9/11, 41% do not

vaccines and autism, 51% do not

including 22% of Romney voters

-          Voters are split 44%-45% on whether Bush intentionally misled 
about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. 72% of Democrats think Bush 
lied about WMDs, Independents agree 48-45, just 13% of Republicans think so

-          29% of voters believe aliens exist

-          14% of voters say the CIA was instrumental in creating the 
crack cocaine epidemic in America’s inner cities in the 1980’s

-          9% of voters think the government adds fluoride to our water 
supply for sinister reasons (not just dental health)

-          4% of voters say they believe “lizard people” control our 
societies by gaining political power

-          51% of voters say a larger conspiracy was at work in the JFK 
assassination, just 25% say Oswald acted alone

-          14% of voters believe in Bigfoot

mind-controlling technology to TV broadcast signals (the so-called 
Tinfoil Hat crowd)

actually chemicals sprayed by the government for sinister reasons

pharmaceutical industry “invent” new diseases to make money

in 1966

happen, 78% do not agree
