According to a new poll, a majority of Republicans believe that ACORN stole the 2008 election, and that Barack Obama was not the legitimate winner.
The poll asked this question: “Do you think that Barack Obama legitimately won the Presidential election last year, or do you think that ACORN stole it for him?” The overall top-line is legitimately won 62%, ACORN stole it 26%.
Among Republicans, however, only 27% say Obama actually won the race, with 52% — an outright majority — saying that ACORN stole it, and 21% are undecided. Among McCain voters, the breakdown is 31%-49%-20%. By comparison, independents weigh in at 72%-18%-10%, and Democrats are 86%-9%-4%.
Think about that. To believe that Obama was not the legitimate winner, you’d have to believe that ACORN somehow managed to stuff over 9.5 million ballots nationwide. Really… could Republicans be more deluded?
On the bright side, as long as Republicans truly believe that the only reason they lose elections is because Democrats steal them — rather than the fact that the majority of Americans reject the Republican position on a majority of issues — they’ll never recover from their current state of moral and electoral collapse.
