1 In 5 Voters Think Osama bin Laden Is Still Alive


According to a report from an independent pollster on TheDaily.com, 19 percent of likely voters doubt Osama bin Laden is really dead. That is, one in every five people suspects the government is lying.

Furthermore, the demographics of those expressing their doubts are surprisingly diverse, not limited to ultra-conservatives.

“Just who are these doubters? They tend to be Republicans (25 percent), those born between 1964 and 1978 (24 percent), born-again non-Catholics (28 percent), those without a college degree (25 percent), conservatives (25 percent), residents of rural areas (24 percent), those without a passport (26 percent), weekly Walmart shoppers (31 percent), those who attend a place of worship (25 percent), voters most likely to be inclined to support a tea-party-backed candidate (32 percent), and people who have gone without food for 24 hours at a time because of a lack of money or food (52 percent),” the report said.
