The Atlantic reports on a new poll by Public Policy Polling. They surveyed 1,247 Americans.
Do you believe that shape-shifting reptilian people control our world by taking on human form and gaining political power to manipulate our societies, or not?
And 4% of those responding said yes and another 7% said they weren’t sure. 5% said they think Paul McCartney died in 1966 (add me to that group, and I offer up “Silly Love Songs” as proof) and 13% think that Obama is the Anti-Christ.
