A socialist? A Muslim? The Anti-Christ? What the “Wingnuts” Think About President ObamaWingnuts

A new book, Wingnuts: How the Lunatic Fringe Is Hijacking America by John Avlon describes the large numbers of Americans who hold extreme views of President Obama. But how many “wingnuts” are out there and what do they really think? A new Harris Poll seeks to measure how many people are involved and what they believe.

The poll finds that 40% of adults believe Obama is a socialist. More than 30% think he wants to take away Americans’ right to own guns and that he is a Muslim. More than 25% believe he wants to turn over the sovereignty of the United States to a world government, has done many things that are unconstitutional, that he resents America’s heritage, and that he does what Wall Street tells him to do (not bad for a socialist).
