A new poll shows 51% of American are unsure about whether Obama was born in the US. I think Donald Trump is driving this debate and making it acceptable to ask the question "Why can't the President produce a birth certificate"
And then there's this from CNN:
A new survey from Newsweek and The Daily Beast indicates President Obama is ahead of Trump by only two percentage points, 43-41, well within the poll's sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percent. In fact, Trump fares far better against Obama than Sarah Palin, who would lose to Obama by 11 points, 51-40, according to the poll.The media tries to marginalize anyone who raises this issue. Trump has so much media access he can't be marginalized. It is important to note that Trump hasn't made any charges, he is merely asking a reasonable question. I have no doubt this is striking a chord with a number or Republican primary voters.
I am a Trump supporter with no official role. I was Chairman of Trump's Presidential Exploratory Committee in 2000.
