43% seems awful high...
"In a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, 58 percent said Mr. Obama
was born in the United States. That leaves a significant minority who
said they thought he was born in another country (20 percent) or said
they did not know (23 percent)."
I don't find that too hard to believe. 23% who are so fed up with
hearing about it or don't care or just want everyone to shut up about it
or are pedantic enough to answer "I don't know" regarding issues about
which they honestly don't have any factual evidence seems quite
If we assume 50/50 Dems/Reps in the country (seems pretty close), and
say maybe 1-in-10 of the Rs either (a) latched on ot the Kenya thing or
(b) aren't sure whether or not Hawaii counts as "another country" (have
you TALKED to The People, lately?!?! <G>), gives about 20%.
I suppose those not sure where Hawaii is would be in the 23% undecided
camp. That leaves one if five who really believe Obama was born in
Kenya. That is a lot of people. I know people hate him and everything,
but it's just so desperate and contrary to the evidence.
