YIKES! Only 38% Believe Barack Obama was Definitely Born in the United States
The Donald may have dealt the “Trump” card after all. Many have said that the “birther” issue was a loser for Donald Trump. Really? In a recent USA Today poll, only 38% of Americans definitely believe that President Barack Hussein Obama was born in the United States. 38%!!! This is certainly representative of a cross section of many more people that do not believe Obama was born in America than democrats would lead you to believe. 38%!!!
The so-called ‘birther’ conspiracy appears to have maintained its traction on American voters ahead of next year’s elections, as a new poll shows fewer than four in 10 believe President Barack Obama was definitely born in the U.S.
However, the theory appears to have backfired on its most high-profile proponent, as it emerged that fewer than half believe Donald Trump was definitely born in the country.
As stated by Weasel Zippers, there must be many more closet racists than MSNBC thought.
The Hill brings up some other polling data from the USA Today/Gallup poll, namely that Americans oppose 2012 GOP hopefuls as much as they do Obama. However, Obama is the incumbent, such negatives are more detrimental to an incumbent President residing over a terrible economy, no jobs, inflated unemployment, high gas prices and a Middle East in flames. What do such numbers tell us? All it will take is a yet unnamed GOP candidate who inspires the electorate, connects with the people and explains a comprehensive way for America to get on track and become energy independent to walk away with the 2012 election.
