Republicans more likely to believe in demon possession than climate change

Huffington Post reports: A new poll reveals the majority of registered Republican voters believe that demonic possession is a real phenomenon.

The “Halloween-centric” poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling showed that 68 percent of Republican voters think it’s possible to be possessed by demons.

Meanwhile, as news website AlterNet notes, only 48 percent of Republicans polled in an earlier survey conducted by the Pew Research Center survey said they believe in climate change.

As the election looms ever closer, the topic of climate change and global warming has been in the air — with some experts and politicians calling the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy a reality check.

However, while 88 percent of Obama supporters believe that there is “solid evidence that the earth is warming,” only 42 percent of Romney supporters said that this is true, according to the Pew survey.

But before Democrats get too smug about being less inclined to superstition, it turns out that 49 percent of Democrats believe it’s possible to be possessed by a demon and overall, only 35 percent of registered voters think demon possession is impossible.

    In our brave consumer democracy there is no discernable difference in behavior between the climate change believers and the climate change deniers. It might reasonably be suggested that practically 100% of Americans are actually possessed by demons.

    Steve is ahead of me! I wonder if demonic possession explains Robme, Obomber, Achin’,W, Chainey, Rumfeld, John Bolton, Susan and Condi Rice, and others too numerous to parody.
