Polling a group of approximately 1,500 Americans, the poll asked respondents several questions about popular conspiracy theories - including ones Jones pushed.
Unsurprisingly, the most popular conspiracy theory is that there is an organization of people secretly controlling events and the world, regardless of any government power with 41 percent of people thinking it is 'definitely or probably true'.
According to the poll, Republicans who trust Jones are most likely to believe this.
\u201cNew Poll on Alex Jones and Sandy Hook:\n\nFollowing the conclusion of the trial, nearly 1 in 5 Americans (18%) say mass shootings have been faked by groups trying to promote stricter gun control laws.\n\n71% of Americans say they heard about the trial.\n\nhttps://t.co/qekPcseTfD\u201d
Although all investigations into this claim have determined it is false, the theory continues to permeate to Trump supporters.
Perhaps the most ludicrous theory, 'the US government is using the Covid-19 vaccine to microchip the population' is believed by 20 percent of respondents.
\u201cChristian conspiracy theorists will say things like "The Bible LITERALLY says that Bill Gates will put a microchip in the covid-19 vaccine and use it to control your mind." and then point to a passage that says "And in those days a certain pebble shall be named Bob." as proof.\u201d
