Last September, the Pew Research Center, using an online panel, asked people whether they had heard of QAnon and whether it was a good or bad thing for the country. This is a somewhat different question from the positive and negative question, but it gets at the same idea.
A mere 9% of people said they had heard of QAnon and thought it was a good thing for the country. Another 35% said they heard of it and it was a bad thing. The rest weren’t sure what it was or refused to answer.
When we break it down by party, we do see that QAnon is somewhat more popular in Republican circles. Even there, though, it’s just 16% who have heard of QAnon and think it’s a good thing for the country. A mere 3% of Democrats have heard of QAnon and think it’s a good thing. More recent online polling has shown a similar percentage of people hold favorable opinions of QAnon.
These numbers for QAnon as a way of thinking are in line with or even lower than some for conspiracy theories that have invaded Republican circles in recent years.
