10% Think Obama is a Muslim

But is that all bad. There’s always going to be a nutty fringe who refuse to accept reality. I mean, 18 percent think the Sun revolves around the Earth! So its not necessarily a terrible thing that there is a fringe who believe completely false things about Obama.

The question is whether he can overcome the fact that some people believe that he is a Muslim. I don’t think there is much question that he can. People who believe that Obama is a Muslim probably weren’t ever going to vote for him anyways. They likely overlap very heavily with people who wouldn’t vote for him based on race or simply because he is a Democrat. It just strikes me as unlikely that Obama will lose the election because of these voters.

  1. What Say You?

    Some won’t vote for him because they think he’s a Muslim. Some won’t vote for him because of Rev. Wright. Some won’t vote for him because he’s black. Some won’t vote for him because he’s not black ENOUGH…
