In a report released Tuesday, Public Policy Polling looked at conspiracy theories on issues ranging from the JFK assassination to UFOs, contrails, President Barack Obama as the anti-Christ and fluoride.
According to PPP's partisan breakdown of the organization's poll data, Mitt Romney voters and President Barack Obama voters differ on items like the Iraq war and global warming, but things like Osama bin Laden's death find a more bipartisan consensus.
"Even crazy conspiracy theories are subject to partisan polarization, especially when there are political overtones involved," PPP president Dean Debnam said. "But most Americans reject the wackier ideas out there about fake moon landings and shape-shifting lizards."
Here's a look at 15 of the questions PPP asked in its poll, and some of the results the questions led to.
