Are you part of the four percent? The four percent of Americans, that is, who believe that shape-shifting reptilian people control our world by taking on human form and gaining political power to manipulate our societies? If you're not, you may be a touch aghast by the (still low) number. But according to a new poll from Public Policy Polling, the conspiracy theorists are strong among us.

(Still not convinced? Read Tom Shoop's exposé on the Secret Service's reptilian shapeshifter on staff...)

In a survey of 1,247 registered American voters from March 27-30 (conducted through automated telephone interviews), Public Policy Polling discovered some choice nuggets among the things we do and do not believe. Some highlights from the survey (pdf).

The polling firm didn't stop with the more outlandish beliefs, however. The survey also covered some political conspiracy theories that are a bit more in the mainstream.
