Obama: Not a Natural-Born Citizen?

PollWell, there’s been another poll that’s supposed to show how out of touch Americans are from reality. It shows that fully 14% of Americans believe that Obama wasn’t born in the United States, and 6% suspect that he wasn’t born here.  That’s about 20% of everyone either believing or suspecting that Obama was not born here. One out of five. But there are some serious issues with this poll.

First, it’s a poll. Everyone knows that polls are inherently unreliable. Remember when all those polls said that Gore would beat Bush? Unreliable.

Second, this as a Washington Post-ABC News poll. You have to take account of bias when you look at who’s giving the poll, and I’m biased against both the Washington Post and ABC News. That’s another issue. And look at how biased these questions are:

  • Q: On another subject, where was Barack Obama born, as far as you know?
  • Q: (IF DON’T KNOW) Is it your best guess that Obama was born in the United States, or in another country?
  • Q: (IF ANOTHER COUNTRY) Do you think there’s been solid evidence of that, or is that your suspicion only?

Unbelievably biased. And here are the results (in percent) that were obtained to the question of birthplace:

US Other Country No Opinion
All adults 77 20 3
Democrats 83 15 2
Republicans 65 31 4
Independents 79 18 3
Liberals 87 12 1
Moderates 82 16 2
Somewhat conser. 68 27 5
Very conservative 59 36 5

There seems to be a clear pattern that the more Conservative you are, the more likely you are to believe that Obama was not born here. I’ll say this once more:

Obama was born in the United States. It is ridiculous to think otherwise.

The tragedy here is that all of these people have been tricked into believing that Obama wasn’t born here. They shouldn’t believe that. They should believe this:

Barack Obama is not qualified to be President of the United States. He is not a natural-born citizen because he was born by Caesarean section.

I’ve said it before, but apparently not loudly enough. If people will believe things that are repeated over and over, then we must all do our part and bring up Obama’s Caesarean birth at every possibility. And we need signs.

  1. Why don’t you address the question of his eligibility as a natural born Citizen instead of repeating this red herring birth certificate issue.
