Ralph Reed's Faith and Freedom Coalition Multiple Choice Survey on Obama: Nazi or Communist?

Editor's note: For more on Ralph Reed's get-out-the-vote operation and how it could put Republicans over the top, see AlterNet's report, Ralph Reed to the Rescue? How Clueless Romney Could Still Win.


A conservative religious group is sending its members a ‘survey’ that compares President Obama’s policies to those of Nazi Germany, and asserts that the President has “communist beliefs.”

The mailer, a product of the Faith and Freedom coalition, is titled the “Voter Registration Confirmation Survey.” But its questions have little to do with registering to vote. Rather, the survey asks a host of leading inquries into how its members view the President’s record.

The options prompt the most extreme answers -- with very few moderate or supportive possibilities:

As Mother Jones, which obtained the survey, points out, the Faith and Freedom Coalition and particularly its head, Ralph Reed, are leading the effort to turn out evangelical voters for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. The group plans to spend over $10 million for this purpose.

Romney has praised Reed for his turnout efforts, saying:“Ralph Reed is doing a great job here with the Faith & Freedom Coalition. This is going to make a big impact across America and I appreciate the work you are doing here.” The presidential candidate even gave Reed the ultimate honor of sharing a hotel with him during the convention.
