Steve M. catches a recent YouGov poll on America's foreign policy that includes the Birther Question. America failed miserably.
Ugh. To recap, less than 50% of America now believes for sure that the President was born in the US, and the reason why that's so low is less than 20% of Republicans are now sure the President was born in Hawaii.
You realize, Republicans, you have to introduce articles of impeachment over this if you're correct. Which you're not, you're just assholes.
The nearly as depressing number: the roughly 10% of Democrats who think the President was not born in the US and the 11% more who aren't sure. Betting a lot of them live around my neck of the woods.
And that still leaves less than half of independents who believe the President was born in the US. Look folks, even if a fraction of the people in the Birther/not sure categories are just completely full-blown racists, less than half the country still believes in this staggering ignorance after four years. It's awful. Just awful. And I'm betting these numbers are damn close to matching opinions on the Affordable Care Act too, just as a thought.
