Sen Scott Brown and his GOP base: wrongly informed slightly unhinged

The majority that elected Sen. Scott Brown was comprised of his Republican base and in smaller numbers unaffiliated independents and Democrats. It did not take too many independents and Democrats to vote Republican in this bluest of blue states to elect a Republican as our junior senator. Who are these republicans and what do they believe? A poll came out today that questioned Republicans about their beliefs on a why variety of fact and opinion. The results are quite shocking.

Not unlike the huge percentage of Americans who maintained that Saddam Hussein was involved in the attack on the USA on 9/11, you may be just a shocked by the findings of this poll. So what?

So now these people these wrongly informed and slightly unhinged people are getting their candidates into the highest elected offices in the land. Take a moment and review the poll results and if you wish, comment about which wrong minded-beliefs you find most troublesome and why.

Finally, resolve to vote. If you don;t like the Democratic candidate vote a write-in as protest.

Methodology

DKOS REPUBLICAN POLL 2010

The Daily Kos Republican Poll was conducted by Research 2000 from January 20 through January 31, 2010. A total of 2003 self identified Republicans were interviewed by telephone.

The margin for error, according to standards customarily used by statisticians, is no more than plus or minus 2% percentage points. This means that there is a 95 percent probability that the “true” figure would fall within that range if the entire self identified Republican population were sampled. The margin for error is higher for any demographic subgroup, such as for gender or region.
