A new poll released by Pugh reveals that 96% of all Lifers are Birthers, and 77% are Deathers.
The poll asked 5,000 inmates with life sentences (Lifers), if they thought President Obama was born in this country.
Ninety-six percent said he was born in Hawaii or some other country, revealing that virtually all Lifers are Birthers.
The poll also asked how many Lifers thought America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, which Obama wants to sign into law, calls for death panels to pull the plug on grandma in order to save money.
Seventy-seven percent of the inmates think HR3200 does indeed include that provision. This makes them Deathers.
According to Pugh researcher Dr. Wmotter Trottlebottom, Lifers prefer thinking about birth over death, which may be the reason for the difference.
“Lifers don’t generally concern themselves with end-of-life counseling (living wills), since the penitentiary will make those decisions for them,” said Dr. Trottlebottom.
“On the other hand, they are bored,” said Trottlebottom. “So a good birth certificate rumor has some appeal.”
