Skip to comments.Poll: 48% Of Iowa Republicans Say Obama Wasn’t Born In U.S. (and 26% 'Not Sure')
Posted on 04/19/2011 9:50:51 AM PDT by nhwingut
Nearly half of usual Republican primary voters in Iowa think President Obama was not born in the United States, while barely one-quarter believe he was, according to a PPP poll released on Tuesday.
In the poll, 48% of registered Republican voters said Obama was not born in the U.S., while 26% said he was. Additionally, 26% said they were unsure.

whatever you think about his politics,
the Donald needs to be supported on
this issue and now! The primaries are
far off, and we can’t take another two
years of this communist bastard
Perhaps the focus should be more general? Let's get Obama's past on record. How did he do in college? Release the high school and college transcripts.
I'd like to see Sarah Palin's transcripts (and I know they won't be perfect since she was paying her own way), and DeMint's if he runs, and Bachmann's, and those of any RINO (yeah, even Romney and the Huckster). Make a production of the fact that releasing records on their past is an important part of disclosure and understanding the whole person. Release a full, long-form birth certificate and a full college transcript on every candidate except Obama, and there sill be more pressure to comply with the legitimate request to release the transcripts. That leaves an obvious hole if Obama refuses to release his transcripts, and even if he releases them but doesn't release the long-form bc.
I think he’s pretty much p..sed off with Gov. Jan Brewer, and probably also re-loading!!!
Obama will not be defeated on this issue. Period. So why do you want to keep it going? This is equivalent to the “Bush-arranged-911-to-get-the-oil” theory floated by the left and some tinfoil-hat libertarians like Jesse Ventura. Did that get Kerry elected?

[Note: I'm posting this on several threads because I think this tactic may make a difference in saving America and I want to hear feedback.]
Adherence to the oath of office to defend the Constitution of the United States.
Ever hear of that?
Defeating Obama on the issues will do more to defend the Constitution than harping on birth certificates.
Do YOU have a clandestine recipe as how we secure that goal???
With present GOP "candidates"(?), LOL!!!
Obama despises the Constitution.
Why should I care about Republicans who despise it too?
If they won’t keep their oaths, what else matters?
Would good is an oath of office if Zero is re-elected, and he doubles down on government takeovers of businesses, government regulations, TSA gropefests and peepshows, slushfunds for ACORN, & more Commie and Sharia-compliant judges, etc.
Whatever the strategy, this is just another arrow in our quiver to go after Obama. I see no real down side. We need to attack Obama's personal narrative, whether it is associations with racists, terrorists, and crooks, or his BC, or his failure to disclose his school transcripts, medical records, etc. The GOP made this off-limits in 2008. It is not a distraction, but a necessity that we go after him personally. The emperor has no clothes.
A distraction to whom? The burden of proof is on Obama.
Exactly. What Trump has done now is to make many people think that “if there’s smoke, there must be fire.”
What difference does it make if the Republicans do exactly the same things?
Kerry, with all of his faults as a lousy candidate, almost won despite going up an incumbent war time President. The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth saved the Gop's sorry ass by torpedoing Kerry's phony Vietnam hero narrative. It froze him like a deer in the headlights for almost a month. Rove, a legned in his own mind, criticized the SBVFT as did McCain.
You can do both, just like the Democrats do.
The Trump has dared to take the politically riskiest question on the face of the political landscape, blow past all the others who are spineless to speak of it, and not only herald it but go entirely in-your-face, not to the safe ground conservative media and conservative crowds but in-your-face to the Leftist media, and right up the steps into the White House Obama Oval Office. SPECFRIGGIN’TACULAR!
I haven’t seen courage like this since Custer! ha.
I worry that the entire detailed understanding of “Natural Born Citizen” as understood by the founder’s era citizenry that ratified the Constitution is lost in the weeds of the more yes-or-no issue of a formal Birth Certificate.
If a Long Form is produced, the vast bulk of the electorate will consider the issue closed since this has been reduced to a “birth certicate” issue by the “birthers” as far as all media reports reference it.
If Barack Sr. is shown to be his father, he was never a citizen and the whole BC issue doesn’t resolve a single thing. But when one is produced in October, the issue will look like an Obama WIN. Furthermore, if the marriage was invalid at the time of his birth and no father is declared on the BC proving HI birth, it will be harder to say he is not Natural Born.
Once the Democrats and Republicans ignored it and elected and inaugarated him, the issue was lost as it was never addressed by an honest media in time for an understanding to develop.
