Markos Moulitsas and Research 2000 have attempted to take it, and the results are up now. Among them:

  • Only 24 percent of Republicans say that ACORN definitely did not “steal the 2008 election.” Twenty-one percent say the community group did; 55 percent are unsure.
  • Thirty-one percent of Republicans say President Obama is “a racist who hates white people.” Thirty-six percent disagree; the rest aren’t sure.
  • Twenty-three percent of Republicans want their states to secede from the union. In the South, it’s 33 percent.
  • Only eight percent of Republicans say that “openly gay men and women [should] be allowed to teach in public schools.”

In every case, the more anti-Obama, conservative results come from Republicans in the South.
