Three in 10 Americans believe a 'secretive power elite' is conspiring to rule the world and one in five Republicans believe President Obama is the 'anti-Christ'

Three in 10 Americans believe that a 'secretive power elite' is conspiring to rule the world through an authoritarian government and one in five Republicans believes President Obama is the 'anti-Christ,' according to a survey of the nation's most popular conspiracy theories.

The strange beliefs, which range from the serious (that the U.S. government knowingly allowed the 9/11 terrorist attacks to happen), to the comical (that the Beatles' Paul McCartney died in 1966 and was secretly replaced), the survey by Public Policy Polling shows there is no end to what some people will believe.

The theory on the terrorist attacks is supported by 11 percent of the survey's respondents, while another 11 percent said 'not sure' about whether the government was involved in the national tragedy.
