I am shocked. Shocked I tell yeah. A recent survey from Public Policy Polling (links to a PDF) found more than half of Republican primary voters think that President Obama isn’t a natural born American citizen:
In the poll, 51% of all likely Republican primary voters erroneously believed that President Obama was born outside of the U.S.
“Erroneously believe”? WTF does that even mean exactly? Ignoring the reality of Obama’s certificate of live birth is nothing more than a way to pretend they’re not racists, which simply makes them instead look stupid and racist.
And not surprisingly, among Sarah Palin fans that number is is even higher:
For example, among the two-thirds of likely Republican primary voters with a favorable opinion of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, 83% said Obama was not born in the U.S.
I am sorry, but these folks are just bat shit crazy.
