According to a survey by Public Policy Polling, released on Tuesday, 49 percent of Republicans believe that the disbanded community organizing group ACORN somehow stole the 2012 election for President Obama.

However, ACORN (The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) filed for bankruptcy and disbanded in 2010, reports TheAtlanticWire.com.

ACORN's demise occurred when conservative media prankster James O’Keefe recorded and released intentionally misleading videos that claimed to show ACORN employees instructing how to force young women into prostitution.

Following the videos, John Boehner (R-OH) sponsored a bill in 2009 to pull all government funding of the group, which led to its collapse in 2010.

The poll also revealed that 25 percent of Republicans no longer want to be American and would rather their state to secede from the U.S. than be under President Obama.
