Party of Disbelievers

An incredible poll out Friday from Kos/Research2000 found that a mere 42 percent of Republicans think that Obama was born in the U.S. According to Politico, the poll found that the rest believe either that Obama wasn't born in the U.S. (28 percent) or aren't sure whether he was (30 percent). Birther sentiment was highest in the South and among folks older than 60. Politico sussed out the implications as meaning that "a majority of Republicans polled either don't know about—or don't believe the seemingly incontrovertible evidence Obama's camp has presented over and over that he was born in Hawaii in '61."
