A new PPP survey asked Americans whether or not they believe in some of the more widespread conspiracy theories, and the results were a bit troubling.

37 percent of voters, including 58 percent of Republicans, believe that global warming in a hoax. 6 percent believe Osama bin Laden is still alive, while 13 percent think Barack Obama is the anti-Christ (including 22 percent of Romney voters). 5 percent believe Paul McCartney actually died in 1966.

Perhaps the weirdest: 4 percent say “they believe ‘lizard people’ control our societies by gaining political power.”

More from the survey:

21% of voters say a UFO crashed in Roswell, NM in 1947 and the US government covered it up. More Romney voters (27%) than Obama voters (16%) believe in a UFO coverup

-          28% of voters believe secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government, or New World Order.  A plurality of Romney voters (38%) believe in the New World Order compared to 35% who don’t

-          28% of voters believe Saddam Hussein was involved in the 9/11 attacks.  36% of Romney voters believe Saddam Hussein was involved in 9/11, 41% do not
