I voted.

The 2nd part of your question is too vague tho. The common cold is already a deadly virus that kills tens of thousands of people a year.

Recommending you reword to something like "Or you believe it is no worse than the common cold/flu" to avoid that confusion.

I predict that about 2 of 10 will say it's a hoax. That's in keeping with the 80 percent rule. 80% of the pop has an IQ of 80 or less.

What second part? The only question was:
Do you think covid is a hoax
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

If it is it matches the great chemtrail conspiracy in that the same requirement exists that thousands of different players and all the governments of the world would have to be complicit in conspiring with each other. Not even in a James Bond movie,
but hey – maybe some believe the truth to be even stranger than fiction in this case.

I don't disagree with your premise that there are a lot of dumb people, but IQ is a measure specifically defined such that 50% of the population will test above 100 and 50% will test below 100 so it is impossible for 80% of the population to have an IQ under 80.
Maybe you meant 20%? I haven't done the math to determine if that is correct or incorrect.

Understanding that the effects of Covid on different people or understanding the severity of it compared to other viruses in the past has zero to do with believing if its a hoax or not, so that last little bit of your post is irrelevant to your poll.

As far as believing that this is some sort of hoax or conspiracy, yeah, mankind is too stupid to pull something like that off. And those who believe it, well, they’re on the very bottom to the totem pole in regards to intelligence and thinking skills.

It is real.
My 84 year mother caught it in SK from a woman she gave a ride to that had attended a super spreader religious event in Prince Albert.
It took her over 6 weeks to get over it and she is still not back to where she was.
Probably never will be at her age.

For those that believe it's a hoax/conspiracy theory, I would like them to tell us which other hoaxes and theories they believe in.
How about the Kennedy assassination, the moon landing, and the big one 9-11?
There are dozens of others too, so go for it. And don't be shy.

The disproportionate response to this virus is why many think something else is a foot. As too the "pulling it off" I would say their are very few people actually in on it. They just get the snow ball rolling and we manifest. An unconscious conspiracy in many respects. A self policing situation where anyone in the bureaucratic structure, academia, media questioning the situation is at risk of financial ruin and ostracization. Where any professional questioning the narrative is scrubbed from the internet by the arbiters of reality at google, YouTube etc. And a nice liberal college girl "fact checking" just as a cherry on top.

Therefore whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore television is reality and reality is less than television."
