Poll: Many S.C. Republicans think Obama a Muslim, born in another country

20 September 2011 General 9 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

By WAYNE WASHINGTON

President Barack Obama has released his detailed, long-form birth certificate that shows he was born in Hawaii. And the president has said he is a Christian.

But a Winthrop Poll released today shows that large numbers of S.C. Republicans and those who lean toward the Republican Party don’t believe him.

Nearly 73 percent said the word “honest” does not describe the president well. Almost 30 percent of self-identified S.C. Republicans and Republican-leaning voters say Obama is a Muslim, and 36 percent say the president “probably” or “definitely” was born in another country.

For a few years of his childhood, Obama lived in Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation. Obama, however, has insisted he is a Christian, just as he has maintained that he was born in Hawaii.

With some Republicans arguing Obama was not born in the U.S. – and thus is ineligible to serve as the nation’s chief executive – the president released his long-form birth certificate that showed that he was born in Hawaii on Aug. 4, 1961.

A birth notice in a Hawaii newspaper also indicates that the president was born where and when he says he was.

But the release of that long-form birth certificate has only partially mollified those who questioned the details of the president’s birth.

A Winthrop poll from April, before the president released the detailed birth certificate, found 43 percent of S.C. Republicans and Republican leaners said the president was “probably” or “definitely” born in another country. About 45 percent said he was “definitely” or “probably” born in the United States. Now, that percentage has crept up to 53 percent.

Whether or not they think Obama was born in the United States, S.C. Republicans and Republican leaners still don’t have much use for the president, the poll shows.

More than three-quarters of those polled say the word “intelligent” describes the president “very well” or “well.” But about 75 percent say the same thing about the word “socialist.”

  1. Minds guided by hate are following the work of the devil. If in the face of evidence to the contrary one stands by a point of view, it is the devil’s work, not Gods.

  2. My personal belief is that people can believe what they want. To me it doesn;t matter if he actual was born out of the country (Can you imagine what would happen in this country if we found this to be true and removed him from office.) or if he is a Muslim or not. Its his job performance that I care about at this time. I realized he come into office with a mess, but we hired him to fix it, and so far I don’t see that happening.

  3. Who cares what the Republicans think of Obama. He’s a Democrat trying to fix their mess and they have blocked him at every turn. Of course they’re going to say they don’t believe them. It allows them to behave badly and blame it on him.

  4. BHO is certainly a muzlim. He was born and raised one and no muzlim anywhere has called him apostate. He is superb at taquia and practices deception every minute of his life. Evil is as evil does and he is the personification of evil. Such a good servant of satan and his pedo prince from the underworld. The one thing BHO has done is to prove/show that a black can be as corrupt as any one else.

  5. Well four years is kind of too little time to fix more than ten years of damage…not saying I like him, I also believe he’s Christian, but because of his father’s religion and the marriage between him and his christian mother must have softened his outlook on Muslims and that’s why he’s usually more sympathetic to us.He’s thinking of his father and I guess the example he set as a Muslim man.

  6. I lean to the right and I don’t think he is a Muslim. I do think he is the worst president in the history of the United States. All hat and no cattle.

  7. “He’s thinking of his father and I guess the example he set as a Muslim man.” you mean abandoning his family?

  8. In other ways, Mike, and I didn’t say I was totally right, I was just guessing. Jeez, why do you always jump at the chance to bite my head off. Actually, don’t answer that.

    Lovethemmoonbats: Honestly, he’s not my fave, but he’s only been here four years to fix the damage Bush caused. What’s the damage you say? Well for starters he spent trillions on the Iraq war when we shouldve ended it LONG ago. Suddam Hussein was executed, ok so let the Iraqis build themselves up without being ravaged by MORE violence. I know a couple of Iraqis myself. They are really kind and hospitable people, like many Arabs. Anyways, Bush ket spending and spending on more weapons and on the war. The American soldiers need to go home to their families, it’s not fair for them either. It’s always good and patriotic to serve your country but not if it’s so unnecessary. Both Americans and Iraqis died, it’s a war lost by all. Bush just HAd to keep fueling it, and thats why we’re in such a bad recession. Obama’s trying tofix it but it’s not like it’s that easy to fix the country’s troubles. If you were president it wouldn’t be easy for you, now would it? No it would not.
