Nearly one in six North Carolina Republicans believe GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney was more responsible for Osama bin Laden’s death than the president who ordered the strike, according to a poll released on Monday.

Raleigh-based Public Policy Polling asked 1,081 likely voters a series of questions related to the presidential election over September 7-9. According to the poll’s crosstabs, 15 percent of Republican respondents said that Mitt Romney was more responsible for the al Qaeda leader’s death than President Obama, while 56 percent said they weren’t sure.

  1. They find them in the same place where people think Elvis is alive, Tupac is alive, Obama is a radical Muslim posed to overthrow the government, and people who think Kris Pimpher (Jenner) is a model for great parenting.

  2. This is a poll I’d missed…I had no idea this was the case, and while I shouldn’t be surprised at ignorance like this anymore, I still am anyway. Holy crap.
