Think Republican's are crazy for wanting to see Obama's BC? Over 50% of Democrats are 911 "Truthers"

Who is crazy now?
(Politico) — I’ve been looking for a good analogue to the willingness of Republicans to believe, or say they believe, that Obama was born abroad, and one relevant number is the share of Democrats willing to believe, as they say, that “Bush knew.”

There aren’t a lot of great public numbers on the partisan breakdown of adherents to that conspiracy theory, but the University of Ohio yesterday shared with us the crosstabs of a 2006 poll they did with Scripps Howard that’s useful in that regard.

How likely is it that people in the federal government either assisted in the 9/11 attacks or took no action to stop the attacks because they wanted the United States to go to war in the Middle East?” the poll asked.
A full 22.6% of Democrats said it was “very likely.” Another 28.2% called it “somewhat likely.”
I bet you never see these poll results on ABC, NBC, CBS or CNN.

Oh no! What does that make me if I am in both camps? Now I am worried. :)
