I think it's quite normal. 18% means a lots of people but it's not a big percentage. There's lots of disable people, poor and old people throughout the country. So it's not much actually.

4 percent? That's like 12.8 million people that believe that. Seems awfully high. That's like the population of NYC and LA that all believe lizard people control the US?
Based on a Us pop of 320 million

Or they think their politicians are lizards. Now that I think about it, a lot US politicians act like cold blooded creatures. The number of Americans who believe lizard people control the US has probably gone up since the last US election.

The statistics I posted were from sites quoting results of real world studies and surveys. The obesity numbers were from the CDC. (cdc.gov) The starvation figure was from a site called Statistic Brain that uses Facing the Future, Think Quest and Hunger Relief Organizations as sources.
