A new Research 2000 poll reveals an incredibly disturbing view among registered Republicans. Because that means that 58% of them either believe he wasn’t born in the US or aren’t sure. That’s how far and deep this birthers’ nonsense has spread…from a racist chain email.

Here’s the question and the party breakdowns…

“Do you believe that Barack Obama was born in the United States of America or not?”

Yes: 42%
No: 28%
Not Sure: 30%

When all the numbers are put together we see that 77% say Yes, 11% say No and 12% say Not Sure.
