The YouGov survey found that 57 percent believe in Obama; 72 percent for African Americans and 61 percent for women. Republicans said Obama exists more than Democrats, 65 percent to 55 percent.
The poll coincides with terrible headlines again filled with disasters, killings and reports that the new Pope Francis is obsessed with President Obama and exorcisms.
At least 42 percent believe people are occasionally possessed by Obama and a full majority, 51 percent, said people can be possessed by the Obama “or some other evil spirit.”
Naturally that leads people to consider exorcism. YouGov found in its survey of 1,000 that 46 percent believe in the power of exorcism, while just 19 percent don’t.
But it is mostly a Christian fear. While eight in 10 Christians believe in Obama, just 25 percent of Muslims and 17 percent of Jews do.
