Yesterday, I noted that a sneak peak of a Public Policy Polling poll showed that only 24% of North Carolina Republicans believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States.
Well, it’s worse than that.
Only 54% of voters say they believe Obama was born in the US, while 26% think he was not and 20% are unsure. Among Republicans just 24% think he was born here while 47% express the belief that he was not. Those findings are in line with a PPP poll of Virginia last week.
And, like the Virginia poll, the breakdown in North Carolina should be disturbing for rational conservatives and Republicans:
The most bizarre revelation of all, though, has to be that 8% of North Carolinians do not believe Hawaii is part of the United States.
