The Off-base GOP Base

I really do try to avoid promoting polls, but this new Kos poll on the GOP base is worth archiving. Markos summarizes it at the first link and the full poll is here.

Most of it isn't that surprising. They still believe ACORN stole the election, view Obama as a socialist and want him impeached. More disturbing is 77% said the Book of Genesis should be taught in schools as THE explanation of creation. And in an earlier summary at TPM, it states 31% want contraception to be outlawed.

Makes me wonder about all those stories that were circulating a while back saying the fundies weren't that influential in the GOP anymore. These results sound like the theocrats just cloaked themselves in teabags instead of waving the Bible, but it's clear they still want a theocracy, not a democracy.
