Poll: Majority of Republicans are birthers.

A new DailyKos/Research2000 poll reveals the shocking news that 58 percent of Republicans sympathize with the far-right birthers. Twenty-eight percent don’t believe that President Obama was born in the U.S., and another 30 percent aren’t sure. The birther sentiment was strongest amongst people older than 60 and people living in the South. Politico’s Glenn Thrush asks, “When do we start a serious dialog about the Birther movement being a proxy for racism that is unacceptable to articulate in more direct terms?”


In a Los Angeles Times op-ed, political satirist Bill Maher writes that “it’s so important that we the few, the proud, the reality-based attack this stuff before it has a chance to fester and spread.”
