As the Republican presidential candidates turn their sights on Mississippi and Alabama, where the next two contests are held, a new PPP poll finds that a plurality of Republicans in both states think President Obama is a Muslim. More than half of GOP voters in Mississippi said they held the incorrect view, while 45 percent of Alabama Republicans hold the view. Just 12 and 14 percent, respectively, correctly identified Obama as Christian. Meanwhile, the same poll found that two-thirds of Alabama Republicans believe interracial marriage should be legal, compared with 54 percent of Mississippi Republicans. (HT: Jonathan Chait)
