The Huffington Post has a story up about a recent Daily Kos poll that finds that only 42% of Republicans believe, affirmatively, that Barack Obama was born in the United States.
If you take the inverse of that figure, 58% of Republicans either don't believe, or are not sure whether our president is an American citizen.
This sounds downright incredible... that 58% of one of the two "legitimate" political parties in this country are essentially crazy...
But it's not that bad, really.
Depending on which poll you look at, those that actually identify as "Republican" number somewhere around 20% of registered voters. Of those 20%, 58% are birthertards. The number of birthertards, therefore, is only really about 12% of the registered voter population. That's actually kind of promising. I would have guessed that a much higher percentage of Americans were looney toons. 12% is not bad at all... unless you are a Republican who hopes to have some political relevancy in the next decade...
