"49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn't exist anymore."

Only 52% of them have a provably WRONG "fact" stuck in their heads, that cannot be shaken?

This is lower than I would have expected. The Fox News Ministry of Disinformation is slipping badly.

I saw Huey Newton personally driving a bus full of jihadi to the polls.

The other 48% think that Mitt Romney was elected and will be taking office in January.

Republicans believe a lot of things. Doesn't mean they're necessarily true.

Bob, still waiting for you to deliver your promised response to reports of doctors getting paid by PhRMA which you keep claiming doesn't happen.

"Many researchers have found evidence that such payments can influence doctors’ treatment decisions and contribute to higher costs by encouraging the use of more expensive drugs and medical devices.
***
Large numbers of doctors receive payments from drug and device companies every year — sometimes into the hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars — in exchange for providing advice and giving lectures. Analyses by The New York Times and others have found that about a quarter of doctors take cash payments from drug or device makers and that nearly two-thirds accept routine gifts of food, including lunch for staff members and dinner for themselves.

The Times has found that doctors who take money from drug makers often practice medicine differently from those who do not and that they are more willing to prescribe drugs in risky and unapproved ways, such as prescribing powerful antipsychotic medicines for children."

Patients Deserve to Know What Drug Companies Pay Their Doctor

Of course, the drug companies aren't alone in all this.

Returning to the OP, the issue is that nearly half of one major party has been misled so far from reality that the party's nominees and policies are utterly unacceptable. That enables the other major party's politicians to sell themselves to the highest bidders. Voters are left to choose the lesser of two evils, in this instance Obamacare seemed slightly less bad than the Republican Taliban.

But a firm belief that a tired quip will save the day.
