51% of GOP Voters Think Obama is Not American-Born


obama-muslimIn a shocking finding, more than half of GOP primary voters believe President Barack Obama was not born in the United States, according to a new poll.

Fifty-one percent of 400 Republican primary voters surveyed nationwide by Public Policy Polling said they ascribe to the controversial birther conspiracy theory – despite the fact that the state of Hawaii has posted Obama’s certificate of live birth.

Only 28 percent said they think the president was born in the United States – a constitutional requirement to be president. Twenty-one percent said they were “not sure.”

“Any thought that the birther theory has been put to rest can be thrown out the window,” said Dean Debnam, the president of the Democratic-leanign polling firm. “That view is still widely held in Republican circles.”

Even a number of Republicans officials have said they believe Obama was born in the US and have called for an end to the debate

Among those who do not believe Obama was born in the United States, Mike Huckabee is their first choice for president, followed by Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and then Mitt Romney.

Those who do think the president is a citizen favor Romney over the rest of the field. Huckabee, Palin and Ron Paul trail Romney among believers in Obama’s birth in Hawaii.

A CNN/Opinion Research poll in August showed that a quarter of Americans have doubts about Obama’s citizenship, with 11 percent saying the president was definitely not born in the United States.

The PPP poll was conducted Feb. 11-13 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.

  1. #1
    The “birthers” cannot be silenced EVER, because there was NEVER that “oh-so elusive Birth certificate”
    And Mr. O will be a spook of the past come next November.
    He will compete with Carter for the honor of the lowest ranking president the US ever had.

  2. Fresser you are wrong, it has been produced. Though that led to all sorts of bizzare claims that it isnt good enough, not real, etc etc. Obama could knock on each “birthers” door and personally show them his birth certificate and they still wont be convinced. conspiracy theories are not based on logic or facts they are driven by blind hatred and/or fear. Similarily all the proof in the world wont convince some that Jews were not behind 9/11 or that Aliens didnt land at roswell

  3. #6 youre right it must be reliable after all it is on the internet.
    Incidently there is no need to modify the word “facts” with the adjective “true” unless of course you live in a world where false facts exist, which I suspect you do.
