Dying hard: GOP birtherism

Posted By on Tue, May 3, 2011 at 11:56 AM

New polling shows a rising majority of Americans believe President Obama was born in the United States. A majority of Republicans? Er, no. That leaves room for Donald Trump in the GOP primary, a fact that comedians everywhere applaud.

Bigger news in this poll is the country's huge "wrong track" mood. 67-24 wrong.

UPDATE: An instant polls shows jump in president's rating after bin Laden death. Not surprising. Permanent or transitory?
