According to a Daily Kos poll
, Birtherism finds its greatest audience among Republicans in the South.
Overall, 11 percent of Americans are Birther conspiracy wingnuts. So, to douchbags like Lou Dobbs, who assert that Birth Certificate-gate is really gaining traction, it's really not. It's Southern Republicans who are becoming a squawking minority increasingly apart from mainstream American life.
Here's how it breaks down:
77 percent of Americans believe Obama is a citizen. 11 percent do not. 12 percent don't know.
28 percent of Republicans believe Obama is not a citizen.
23 percent of people in the South believe Obama is not a citizen. This, of course is embarrassing because in the Northeast, the West and the Midwest, the number of folks who don't believe the President is a citizen is in the single digits. Sigh, South -- like the crazy uncle you can't introduce to your girlfriend because he'll say something awkward and humiliating.
