The Extreme Becomes Mainstream.  (Huffington Post, 3/2/2015)
In a national poll of Republican primary voters, two thirds said they don't believe in global warming, and half said they don't believe in evolution. Fifty-seven percent said they support "establishing Christianity as the national religion." Another poll asked people what they think President Obama "believes deep down" in terms of his religious faith. A majority of Republicans chose "Muslim." Only 9 percent described the President's faith as Christian.
