(Newser) – Self-identified Republicans are more than unhappy with President Obama—63% think he’s a socialist—and a host of other social ills, says a survey commissioned by liberal blog Daily Kos. Regarding Obama, 39% of the 2,003 Republican respondents say the president should be impeached, 36% believe he was not born in the US, and 31% agreed that he is “a racist who hates white people.”

On social issues, 55% of respondents say gays shouldn’t be allowed to serve openly in the military, Politico notes, which is actually charitable considering 73% would like to ban openly gay teachers from teaching in public schools. Meanwhile, 77% oppose gay marriage, 68% oppose “any state or federal benefits” for gay couples, and 77% want creationism taught in schools. Of those surveyed, 83% plan to vote.
