20% of Americans Believe Vaccines are Linked to Autism

…and 15% Think the Government Controls Minds with TV

TVBrainW“Do you believe that shape-shifting reptilian people control our world by taking on human form and gaining political power to manipulate our societies, or not?”

This was one of the 20 questions in a survey conducted by the American firm Public Policy Polling (PPP) and released yesterday

The Atlantic Monthly has gone to great effort to organize the questions from most to least believed (JFK ranked highest at 51 per cent; the Bush administration intentionally misleading the public into war with Iraq came in second at 44 per cent).

But back to the lizard people. It seems 4 per cent of respondents think reptile hybrids run the world. As the Atlantic Monthly points out, that translates to more than 12.5-million Americans.

Study the findings for long enough (because it’s a slow news day) and you can draw your own macro theories – or at least find some cold comfort. For instance, it’s unlikely that the people who believe in lizard leaders also believe that Obama is the anti-Christ.
