A Quarter of GOP Fears Zombified ACORN Will Steal 2012 Election


Of Republicans predict that ACORN will steal the 2012 election — a drop from 52% who believed in 2008 that ACORN stole the election for Pres. Obama that year. Never mind that ACORN would have had to falsify nearly 10 million votes to give Obama-Biden their 52.9% to 45.7% victory over McCain-Palin. And never mind that ACORN has been kaput — out of business, dead as doornail, digging up roses, D.E.A.D., dead — since March 2010, and so, absent zombification, can have no effect in 2012 or ever again, which was, after all, the point of the GOP’s dirty tricks campaign to take it down. Among those who fear the zombie ACORN, 20% support Palin for president, 19% support Gingrich and 16% support Milt Romney.
