Shocking poll on global warming

Finally, a real consensus on global warming: It's a lie. Rasmussen Reports:

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of American Adults shows that 69% say it's at least somewhat likely that some scientists have falsified research data in order to support their own theories and beliefs, including 40% who say this is Very Likely. Twenty-two percent (22%) don't think it's likely some scientists have falsified global warming data, including just six percent (6%) say it's Not At All Likely. Another 10% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here .)

The number of adults who say it's likely scientists have falsified data is up 10 points from December 2009 .

Fifty-seven percent (57%) believe there is significant disagreement within the scientific community on global warming, up five points from late 2009. One in four (25%) believes scientists agree on global warming. Another 18% aren't sure.

Republicans and adults not affiliated with either major political party feel stronger than Democrats that some scientists have falsified data to support their global warming theories, but 51% of Democrats also agree.

Even a majority of Democrats!

Update -- Cliff Thier writes:

Rasmussen underestimates the level of doubt.

Remove those with no opinion and you have 76% skeptical and 24% believers. A 3-1 ratio.

I think that it's safe for MItt Romney to change his position on man-caused global warming now, don't you?
