We're in the final year of the Obama administration and the president has a higher approval rating than the overwhelming majority of people in government, but a majority of Republicans still doubt he was born in the United States.
According to an NBC News poll, 41 percent of self-identified Republicans flat out do not believe the president was born in the U.S. and another 31 percent doubt he was. Moreover, NBC also found that it doesn't matter how educated respondents are.
Seventy-two percent of registered Republican voters still doubt President Obama's citizenship, according to a recent NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll conducted in late June and early July of more than 1,700 registered voters. And this skepticism even exists among Republicans high in political knowledge. [...]
The fact that more Republicans currently think that the president was not born in the U.S. and that this belief does not depend on how knowledgeable they are about politics is surprising.
It's not surprising at all. They're racists.
I can't imagine how Donald Trump became the Republican presidential nominee, can you?
