77% ?!

Only 42 percent of Republicans polled actually believe the President of the U.S. is a citizen of the U.S. Compare that to the 77 percent of Americans overall who think the president is actually an American.

I find the 77% of all Americans figure to be just as, if not more disturbing than, the 58% of Republicans over the issue of whether or not they believe the President is an American citizen. Republicans are known to adhere to unreasonable positions for partisan and/or racial loyalty, but they should total far less than 1/4 of Americans for my comfort zone.

It sort of goes to what Mike Molly was saying last night, that if Fox is the number one most trusted news source in the country, there's no point in trying to work with the American population on the basis of reason for progress. We just aren't capable of it. Forget it.
