If this arrived on April 1 instead of April 2, we'd assume this was some sort of prank. 

Public Policy Polling announced today that "we took the opportunity to poll 20 widespread and/or infamous conspiracy theories. Many of these theories are well known to the public, others perhaps to just the darker corners of the internet."

Among the findings:

  • 37% of voters believe global warming is a hoax, 51% do not. Republicans say global warming is a hoax by a 58-25 margin, Democrats disagree 11-77, and Independents are more split at 41-51.  
  • 4% of voters say they believe “lizard people” control our societies by gaining political power 
  • 51% of voters say a larger conspiracy was at work in the JFK assassination, just 25% say Oswald acted alone 
  • 14% of voters believe in Bigfoot 
  • Just 5% of voters believe that Paul McCartney actually died in 1966 
  • 11% of voters believe the US government allowed 9/11 to happen, 78% do not agree
