Can't Sleep

The April 2, 2013 Guardian reports:
About one in four Americans suspect that President Barack Obama might be the antichrist, more than a third believe that global warming is a hoax and more than half suspect that a secretive global elite is trying to set up a New World Order, according to a poll released on Tuesday.
That's ridiculous.  The Antichrist will be competent.
The survey also revealed that 28% of people believed in a sinister global New World Order conspiracy, aimed at ruling the whole world through authoritarian government. Another 25% were "not sure" and only a minority of American voters – 46% – thought such a conspiracy theory was not true.
If the world today is a result of a sinister global New World Order conspiracy, the conspirators are remarkably incompetent.  The good news:
 For example, only 7% of Americans in the survey believed the moon landing was faked, 14% believed in Bigfoot and 4% accepted that "shape-shifting alien reptilian people control our world by taking on human form".
What?  The X Files wasn't a documentary?

They left off 12% believe Elvis is still alive, and 6% believe that if you write a letter to him he will receive it.
I question the 25% believe Obama is the antichrist statistic, though. I think Obama believes he is the antichrist.
