Washington (CNN)A new CNN/ORC poll finds that although misperceptions about Barack Obama's religious beliefs and background persist, they are not as widespread as some recent polling has suggested. Obama was born in Hawaii and is a Christian.
Overall, when asked "where was Obama born, as far as you know?" 80% of adults say they believe Obama was born in the United States, while 20% said that he was born outside the country. And just 9% of those who think he was born elsewhere believe there is solid evidence of that; the other 11% say it is just their suspicion.
Misperceptions about Obama's religious beliefs are more common than those about his birth, particularly among Republicans. Overall, 29% of Americans say they think the President is a Muslim, including 43% of Republicans.

OK, you right-wingers, it's settled science, CNN said so.
Stop the H8.
Thank you for sharing, Jenny. That’s really some Earth shattering, “breaking”, news you came up with. You can go back to playing with your “smart” phone now.
Obama: “My Muslim Faith”
I don’t know where he was born, but his actions are those of someone who hates this country..
I believe he was born in Hawaii, although I believe that Barak Obama was not listed as his father on the original birth certificate.
I also believe he is an atheist. He will pretend to be whatever people want him to be in order to advance himself. I believe he likes Islam more than Christianity and feels more affinity towards it.
One persons misperceptions are another perceptions. The dishonest hobo was born in kenya and was raised a moozlum.
Only 29 % think he’s Muslim? So 71 % are reallly that stupid, the poll was rigged, or CNN is lying and covering for the president.

Malik is a Muslim Brotherhood activist---and lives in Kanya.
These days, with all of the lying going on by politicians, I don’t put much stock in what someone says. I watch what they do. IMHO, someone who is really an American Christian would never have done to America and Americans what Obama has done to us.
Obama’s own pre-senate election materials and publicity all proudly proclaimed him as “kenyan-born”
His natural affinities do tend to favor muslims and islam; that says a lot.
Well, you definitely preach to the choir with most FReepers, convincing CNN and the rest of the Lame-stream media is another thing.
So...people are getting their ‘minds right’? Odd that the article doesn’t offer the correct answer.
Lie number ONE!!! He's a Sunni Muslim and belongs to the muslim brotherhood!!!
Lie number TWO!!! His family friend, the only one killed in the plane crash, after issuing the fake birth certificate said he was born in Kenya....to a Kenyan Father....
A 1991 promotional literary pamphlet featured a short biographical sketch of Obama, and claimed he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.
What is his actual name? The only publicly available school record for Obama lists him as an Indonesian citizen named Barry Soetoro.
CNN can twist the facts any way they want, but we the American People have the TRUTH!!!
Mars Needs Muslims!!
How is it a “misperception?”
McConnell believes he was born in HI. Probably Cruz does too....truth is buried deep in the political arena.
