I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

The North Carolina Birther Poll Is Worse Than We Thought

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:

By race:

NC Poll 1


NC Poll 2

And, ideology:

NC Poll 3

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.
