The ten most popular political conspiracy theories (PHOTO GALLERY)

Public Policy Polling likes to throw us a curve ball occasionally, with a survey that isn’t the usual Democrat vs. Republican election match-up.

The newest is some offbeat polling on public opinion on various political conspiracy theories. Here are PPP’s top ten — and then a few that are way, way out there.

1. 51 percent of voters believe that John F. Kennedy’s assassination was a conspiracy.

2. 44 percent of voters believe that George W. Bush intentionally lied about Iraq possessing weapons of mass destruction in order to lead the nation to war against Saddam Hussein.

3. 37 percent of voters believe global warming is a hoax.

4. 29 percent of voters believe aliens exist and that governments around the world are covering up evidence of it.

5. 28 percent of voters believe secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian one-world government, the New World Order (as enunciated by the first President George Bush).

6. 28 percent of voters believe Saddam Hussein was involved in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

7. 21 percent of voters say the U.S. government for more than six decades has covered up a UFO crash in Roswell, N.M.

8. 20 percent of voters believe the government is hiding a link between childhood vaccines and autism.

9. 15 percent of voters say the government (or the corporate media) has added mind-controlling technology to TV signals.

10. 14 percent of voters believe the CIA was instrumental in creating the crack cocaine epidemic of the 1980s in America’s cities.

How many of these conspiracies do you subscribe to?

Here are a few others that didn’t quite make the list:

– 13 percent of voters think Barack Obama is the anti-Christ

– 7% of voters think the moon landing was faked

– 6 percent of voters believe Osama bin Laden is still alive

– 4 percent of voters say they believe “lizard people” control our societies by gaining political power.

And for a reality check: 2 percent of Texas Republicans think that Rick Perry should be their party’s presidential nominee in 2016. Gotta give it to the lizard people.
