New Poll Concludes the Majority of Republicans are Birthers
Its not solely the flamboyant Donald Trump making an obnoxious show of his sudden conversion to joining the birther cult.



The absurd belief that President Obama is secretly a Kenyan Muslim here to recreate America into a Socialist utopia, seems to be contagious. According to a new CBS/NY Times poll, it shows a consistency that the majority of Republicans doubt President Obamas American citizenship.



47% of GOPers said they believed Obama was born in another country
22% said they did not know where he was born
32% said they believed he was born in the U.S.

3. Because they believe what the party leaders tell them to believe
It is not simply that they hear it on FAUX, but the message from the party is what they communicate as their own belief and values.


It is pretty sad if you have to let someone else tell you what you think.

4. My "conservative" father keeps telling me that these nutcases
are a tiny minority of Republicans/conservatives. He says the same about the ones who want to teach Genesis in science class, and the ones who want to ban abortion completely, and the ones who are virulently racist. I'll send him this poll like I do all the many others that indicate that MOST Republicans/conservatives are just fucking insane.

I put "conservative" in quotes because he actually holds quite a few liberal opinions, but he's caught up in the Faux and Limpballs propaganda that Democrats are evil and want to destroy America.
