survey of Mississippi and Alabama Republicans found that at least a plurality in both states believes that President Obama is a Muslim, evolution is false and Rush Limbaugh is admirable:
A stunning 52% of Mississippi respondents to a survey done ahead of Tuesday’s presidential primary have bought into the false notion that Obama worships Allah, Public Policy Polling reported Monday. Some 36% said they weren’t sure.
In Alabama, 45% responded in the affirmative when asked the same question and 41% said they weren’t sure, pollsters found.
...Mississippi and Alabama are also deeply religious states that generally rank at or close to the bottom in most state education rankings.
Sixty-six percent of Mississippians surveyed by PPP said they didn’t believe in evolution as did 60% of people in Alabama, the pollsters found.
And in these states, Rush Limbaugh is an admired figure, with 53% of those polled admitting to having a favorable opinion of the right wing rabblerouser. The figure was 51% in Mississippi.
The survey was done over the weekend as Limbaugh continued to be hit by criticism for calling a Georgetown University law student a “slut” on the air.
