Obama won, so (on 3) blame ACORN! 49% of Republicans still do, even though it no longer exists.


Public Policy Polling has some pretty pathetic survey results to report. Sulky Republicans just can't bring themselves to accept reality. Okay, that's nothing new. And they continue to believe that ACORN exists! Oh, wait. That's nothing new either... but it's still pretty pathetic:

PPP's first post election national poll finds that Republicans are taking the results pretty hard...and also declining in numbers.

49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn't exist anymore.

Some GOP voters are so unhappy with the outcome that they no longer care to be a part of the United States. 25% of Republicans say they would like their state to secede from the union compared to 56% who want to stay and 19% who aren't sure.

Before it disbanded, ACORN was demonized by Republicans, but as you may recall, they were cleared of all wrongdoing.

Yes, ACORN was proved innocent of any illegality in the “pimp” affair, a federal judge declared defunding ACORN unconstitutional, and the Congressional Research Service found no evidence of voter fraud.

Clear? Not to the GOP. Then again, they think secession is an option. Let's not tell 'em who guards their borders, protects them, provides health care options, fresh water, their beloved military, disaster relief, etc. That will be our little secret.

The good news? There's been a 5 point increase in Democratic identification as compared to a 5 point decrease in Republican identification since the election.

It gets better: " Grover Norquist is largely unknown nationally, and among voters who are familiar with him he is generally disliked." Gee, I can't imagine why.

Oh, and President Obama's approvals have gone up. Again.
