According to a Harris Interactive Poll of 2,320 adults, 24 percent of Republican voters, 13 percent of independents and 6 percent of Democratic voters said President Barack Obama may be the anti-Christ.
Researchers said the poll was done to seek verification of themes in John Avlon's book Wingnuts.
Avlon said the Harris Poll was a wake-up call "about the real costs of using fear and hate to pump up hyperpartisanship. ... We are playing with dynamite by demonizing our president and dividing our country in the process."
