Yes, that is a serious headline. Wingnuts apparently believe by an overwhelming margin that Obama actually stole the election.
Among Republicans, however, only 27% say Obama actually won the race, with 52% — an outright majority — saying that ACORN stole it, and 21% are undecided. Among McCain voters, the breakdown is 31%-49%-20%. By comparison, independents weigh in at 72%-18%-10%, and Democrats are 86%-9%-4%.
And, unlike the controversy over the 2000 election, there’s actually no evidence whatsoever to support this belief.
Astonishingly, this position is actually more popular on the right than the Birther conspiracy, despite the fact that it would mean ACORN would have had to falsify something like 9.5 million votes.
