A new poll of 400 likely Republican primary voters suggests President Barack Obama should cue up a Bruce Springsteen song as his campaign anthem. Only about one in four believes he was born in the USA.
The poll was designed to test the relative strength of various GOP presidential aspirants. Mike Huckabee was first, followed by Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin. But as polls often do, the folks at PPP asked some other questions. Among them:
Do you think President Obama was born in the United States?
No said 51 percent
Yes said 28 percent
Not sure said 21 percent.
In other words, nearly three-fourths are either convinced he wasn't or aren't sure he was.
