SHOCK POLL DETERMINES AMERICANS ARE FUCKING IMBECILES *blinking siren graphic*

Oh my god! Birtherism has gone completely mainstream!

Still, in the USA TODAY poll, only 38% of Americans say Obama definitely was born in the USA, and 18% say he probably was. Fifteen percent say he probably was born in another country, and 9% say he definitely was born elsewhere.

Republicans are inclined to say the president was born abroad by 43%-35%.

via Poll: What kind of president would Donald Trump make? – USATODAY.com.

Wait, what’s this? Oh, there’s more text here.

For what it’s worth, not everyone is convinced Trump was born in the USA either: 43% say he definitely was born here, and 20% say he probably was; 7% say he definitely or probably was born in another country. Nearly three in 10 say they don’t know enough to say.

Donald Trump was born in Queens. This is not and has never been disputed, yet only 7% more of the sample believes he was born in this country than believes the same about Obama after 3 straight years of the issue being out there. The correct conclusion is not that birtherism is mainstream, but that we shouldn’t pay attention to fucking idiots.

…and by the by, a poll that says x% of Americans think something is not even remotely the same thing as a poll that says x% of likely voters feel that way. It’s worthless all around.
