Daily Kos Poll: Majority of GOP Still Question Obama Birth
Written by 

According to the Daily Kos, a “liberal-progressive” leaning website, since Obama’s recent release of his “long-form” birth certificate last week, more Americans believe that Obama was born in the U.S., however, a majority of Republican voters feel Obama was not U.S. born or are unsure.


In an email sent to Bayoubuzz, David Nir states, “This suggests that the "birther" issue still has appeal to the hardcore GOP base, and still offers room for a candidate like Donald Trump to have an impact on the Republican presidential race.”

Here is the entire letter to Bayoubuzz introducing the Daily Kos poll and the link to the actual poll results.

“After President Obama released his so-called "long-form" birth certificate last week, we decided to see if the move would affect views about his birthplace. The answer is "yes… but." Overall, the number of people who correctly identify the president's birthplace has gone up since our pollster, Public Policy Polling, last asked this question in February:

Q: Do you think Barack Obama was born in the United States?

      May 2011:

      Yes: 67
      No: 20
      Not sure: 13

      Feb. 2011:

      Yes: 55
      No: 27
      Not sure: 18

However, a majority of Republicans still say they think Obama was not born in the United States (32%) or are unsure (23%). This suggests that the "birther" issue still has appeal to the hardcore GOP base, and still offers room for a candidate like Donald Trump to have an impact on the Republican presidential race.”

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
