Someone needs to inform Republicans that they’re entitled to their own opinions, but they’re not entitled to their own facts. A new poll conducted by Dartmouth and YouGov found that most Republicans still believe that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. That was the main argument that war criminals Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld gave the American people to hype up support for war with Iraq in 2003.
But that argument has since been completely debunked. However, nearly ten years later, a majority of Republicans – 63% - still believe its true. That compared with only 15% of Democrats who think it’s still true. To top it all off, of the Republicans polled who think Saddam had WMDs, 64% also believed that President Obama was born in a different country.
I'm beginning to think that Republicans really do live in the a parallel universe – one in which President Obama was born in Kenya, Fast and Furious is a conspiracy to take our guns away, and rich people really are “job creators.”
