Skeptic News: 1/3 of Americans believe in UFOs

20120629-001304.jpgA new survey finds that 80 million Americans, or 36 percent of the population, believe UFOs are real. One in 10 respondents say they have personally witnessed an alien spaceship.

The survey conducted by market research company Kelton Research also found that If aliens were to invade the country sometime in the next four years, 65 percent of survey respondents said President Obama would be better suited for handling the invasion than Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

To the question of whether they believe aliens have visited Earth, 36 percent of Americans who were surveyed said they do, 48 percent aren’t sure, and 17 percent said they don’t believe so. More than three in four Americans (77 percent) think there are signsthat suggest aliens have visited the Earth, whether or not they’ve made up their minds about the question.

It is worth bearing in mind that the survey was produced by a market research company to promote a new UFO based TV show. So how confident we can be of these numbers is perhaps questionable.

    It says that 36% think that aliens have visited the Earth, but 89% think that the government has covered it up, which doesn’t make sense.They did not say how many people think that the UFO’s ate angels or demons. I’m afraid that it would be a significant number.
