Only 62% Report Believing Obama was Born in the United States

Friday, August 21, 2009

Just 62% of respondents in the latest Public Policy Polling believe that President Barack Obama was born in the United States. This means 38% of Americans are cardcarrying citizens of Birther Nation who also think penis pigs roam the jungles of Borneo. What’s equally mind numbing is the poll shows 10% of respondents aren’t sure if Hawaii is a state.

    A “penis pig?”

    What the hell is a penis pig? Did they arrive from another planet or are they what I think they are?

  2. Brigadoon says:

    10% of people don’t think Hawaii is a state? If this is true then there really is no hope for this country. I always thought Jay Leno’s ‘Stupid Persons’ segment was staged but no more. Americans are clueless.

  3. retahyajyajav says:

    We laugh but even people in the media are clueless when it comes to Hawaii.

    That ABC idiot Cokie Roberts was confused when then-candidate Obama took a vacation to the Islands, saying he should avoid the exotic for the hayseed and go to Branson, MO.

    I guess the media elites don’t leave Manhattan or travel outside the Capitol Beltway much.

  4. DMason says:

    So 38% of people aren’t sure if President Obama was born in the US? Fair enough. I remain unsure if former President Bush was born on this planet.

    In all fairness, the ten per cent who don’t believe Hawaii is a State are Hawaiians.

    The rest of us are celebrating the 50th State’s 50th birthday today. I think. Sorta.

    Personally, I don’t believe Texas is a State. Nor should it be.

  7. Woodcliffe says:

    I’m with Mets Fan. What is a penis pig?

  8. Nan Yun says:

    Could it be possible the 10% of respondents were home schooled and their mother wasn’t aware that Hawaii became the 50th U.S. state in 1959?

    Or am I trying to explain the inexplicable?

  9. JollyRoger says:

    I’d like to actually see where their sampling came from. The fact that this poller is NC based automatically gives me cause for skepticism. That, and these numbers disagree with WaPo/ABC, which show the PResident’s numbers as FALLING (but still above PPP’s last poll.)

  10. there are a huge chunk of Americans who cant find the US on a map

    but they can find The Iraq, especially if the are in South Carolina

  11. Nigel Karsten says:

    Do you think penis pigs exist and live in the
    of Borneo?

    My grandparents were missionaries in Borneo over a period of 2 years.

    I still remember my grandfather telling of the penis pigs and how they fearlessly sauntered into villages snatching small animals and children for food.

    Even large cats were said to fear the penis pigs.

  12. feminazi says:

    My 15 year old nephew knows Hawaii is a state. My daughters know Hawaii is a state. I know Hawaii is a state. All of us went to public schools. What the heck is wrong with 10% of people who can be so thoroughly clueless?

  13. libhomo says:

    The corporate media is what’s wrong with people. They keep having some of their hucksters spewing this nonsense.
