(Angus Reid Global Monitor) - Three-in-ten Americans think their current head of state was not born in the United States, according to a poll by Angus Reid Strategies. 70 per cent of respondents believe Barack Obama was born in the U.S., while 30 per cent do not.
While only 13 per cent of Democratic Party supporters believe Obama was not born in the U.S., the proportion rises to 25 per cent among Independents and 51 per cent among Republican Party backers.
In American elections, candidates require 270 votes in the Electoral College to win the White House. In November 2008, Democratic nominee Obama secured a majority of electoral votes, defeating Republican candidate John McCain. In January, Obama became the first African American president in U.S. history.
Article II of the U.S. Constitution establishes that only "natural born" American citizens are eligible to become presidents.
Last year, the Obama campaign team released a Certification of Live Birth, which states that Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Aug. 4, 1961. The State of Hawaii only allows for the release of an original birth certificate under "extenuating circumstances."
Earlier this month, former House majority leader Tom Delay discussed his views on Obamas birth, saying, "Why wouldnt the president of the United States show the American people his birth certificate? You have to show a birth certificate to play Little League baseball. Its a question that should be answered. Its in the Constitution that you have to be a natural born citizen of the United States to be president."

Do you believe Obama to be a marxist quisling?
“Do you believe Obama to be a marxist quisling? “
Yes, Absolutely! Let’s get a poll started someplace.
Not born in the US and not the son of a U.S. father.
These poll results are truly remarkable. Barry cannot keep his past from being revealed. It’s just a question of how and when.
He said his father was a Kenyan. That in itself disqualifies him!!!
It seems the libs and Obama wing of the GOP (and FR) has not convinced conservatives that the boy marxist is an American.
And these are not “extenuating circumstances”???
It would be more correct to say "In January, Obama became the first African president of the U.S."
Strange that a third of the country believes Obama is not a natural born citizen, yet Obama refuses to simply show his Birth Certificate to prove he is.
Also strange that a third of the country believes that the President is illegitimate by not being a natural born citizen, yet the media is afraid to look into that story..
Any poll that doesn’t have an option for “I don’t know whether he was born in the US” is not an honest poll, because an obvious answer for an intelligent person is that there is not enough public information on which to base a belief.
In an honest poll I would bet that the combined percentage of “I believe he was not born in the US” and “I don’t know whether he was born in the US” would be quite high.
The liberals do not want to offer that alternative answer, because it would place pressure on Obama to release more documents about himself.
latest is that the address on his Selective Service registration card is an upscale condo in Oahu (one that the child of a single mother who was an erstwhile grad student could likely not afford). Heard anything on that?
If Obama had been born in the US; he would have produced a bc right off the bat. He did not and has spent millions of dollars covering up. Why should we believe he was born in the US? He hasn’t produced one piece of credible evidence.
We’ll get to the truth, if we have to rip the documents out of his cold, marxist fingers.
Actually, I believe he is a Muslim Marxist quisling.
Thanks for clarifying.
He’s a sleeper cell.
So where was this question a year ago?
I bet the majority of Kenyan citizens and their Kenyan parliament members think that Obama was born in Kenya.
Actually, I believe he is a Muslim Marxist quisling.
Well I believe he is a a Muslim Marxist Quisling Dictator
No, I don’t think he is a “marxist quisling”. He is a quisling, and he is a marxist.
But :marxist” is not a modifier for “quisling” - they are freestanding faults in his panoply of faults.
Chris Mathews MSNBC reports this every day. says “So republicans should not even be listened to because it’s just hate”. He says it’s the racist South too that believes this. I am amazed that the Birth-certificaters (the real ones that are not MSNBC trolls) couldnt see this coming. What a loser of an issue!
But, but, but.....how can this be. The FR kneepadders keep telling us that those fringe birthers are hurting the GOP. Yet most Republicans are smart enough to know Obama is a fraud. And on top of that, he’s continuing to get sink in the polls.
If we keep adding descriptors, this thread can become a classic.
and a marxist
I don’t know where Obama was born, but I do know that he is Un-American.
an LOL PING
This poll may explain why Obama had a little kid ask him if he was born in Hawaii. They got a tip about this poll being released.
Oooooohhhhhh. I’ll bet you anything he got a head’s up about this poll coming out. I like you’re thinking. That Q&A was so frickin obviously a setup.
Fox is a real news organization, and Obama is not a real president
In addition, on his very own campaign web site, they admitted that his "birth status was governed by Great Britain."
So, how in the world, could a dual national be considered a Natural Born Citizen? They can't.
Look into the property tax rolls of Hawaii and see if the condo development came later than the time he is said to have lived there.
Until then, your info is without substance.
Just gotta get that argument to be heard by the courts. So far, not so good.
Since Biden and Pelosi were complicit in this fraud, who will take Dear Leader’s place?
Obama is a marxist, muslim, quisling Kenyan.
More editing required:
“In January, Obama became the first African to usurp the office of the President of the U.S.”
What I’d like to know his just how do Black Americans relate to him?
He is not a decendent of Slaves.
He has no Black American heritage or culture.
He spent most of his childhood overseas. And in an apartment in Hawaii.
He was raised by typical white people.
After high school, muslim money sent to him Ivy Leage colleges.
The only thing I can see that BO has in common with other blacks is that he was abandoned by his father.
And yet.... Blacks identify with him.
Senator Byrd has one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel, which makes it Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
LOL. If she helps us get rid of Ears, she can have the rest of his term.
Between innings at the All-Star game, he was chatting with Joe Buck and Tim McCarver, and said he “was raised in Hawaii”, but nothing about being born there. I found that a bit odd.
This thread is in violation of the Net Neutrality Laws, please comply ... The next 44 posts must come from MoveOn.Org
LOL. We are going to shove Net Neutrality right back up Obama’s ass.
That is exactly what has happened with Obama. It shows the insights and wisdom of our founding fathers.
Not long ago, on FR, an English person pointed out that the Kenyans hated the English colonials and overthrew them with the help of Marxists. They pointed out that Obama shows all the hatred of the English and the affinity for Marxism that is typical of educated post-colonial Kenyans.
Kenyans of the colonial era also would smile to deceive their overlords, not revealing their hatred of their white overlords. Obama is doing the same thing. He smiles so everyone will not catch on that he hates the whites and he hates our traditions. And he hates America being what he regards as the overlords of the world.
According to the After-Birthers, we make FR look bad by bringing Obama’s birth place and citizenship into question. There’s a whole lot of us. LoL!
