It probably won't surprise you to learn that roughly one third of Republican voters believe the United States military is poised to seize control of Texas by tunneling under local Wal-Marts, but I was personally surprised to learn that Scott Walker is the current most popular choice among those who believe in Lizard People.
From Public Policy Polling:
We also tested the recent conspiracy theory that the federal government is trying to take over Texas- 32% of Republican primary voters buy into it compared to 40% who don't. Scott Walker leads the field among those who believe in the Texas conspiracy to 18% for Ted Cruz, 13% each for Marco Rubio and Mike Huckabee, and 10% for Ben Carson. Jeb Bush leads among voters who don't buy into it at 17% but since he only gets 6% with those who do his overall standing remains somewhat weak.
As far as I know, Team Walker has said absolutely nothing about the coming military coup while Team Cruz has had plenty to say. I expected Ben Carson or Ted Cruz would be the number one choice for those who believe in military takeovers, but apparently I guessed wrong.
Altogether, 60 percent of Republican primary voters either believe the American military is planning a coup (32%) or they aren't sure if the military is planning a coup (28%).
It's not clear what the 28 percent who aren't sure are waiting for. A coded message from the resistance, perhaps.
