Poll result: 23 percent of Texans are morons
Posted by James McPherson on October 30, 2008
That number is based on one question from one survey. Fox New offers the evidence, based on a poll by the Texas Politics Project and the the government department at the University of Texas in Austin. About a fourth of all registered Lone Star State voters apparently think Barack Obama is a Muslim.
Considering the fact that 89 percent of those polled think the country is worse off economically than a year ago, but more than half still say they’ll vote for John McCain–who has yet to offer any economic plan other than “I won’t raise taxes” and “Look over there, to see the mud I found to roll in today”–the number of clueless Texas voters actually may be much higher than the poll suggests. And you wondered how George W. Bush became a governor?
