....23% of these voters say they would not be willing to vote for a candidate who stated clearly that Obama was born in the U.S. 38% say they would, and a 39% plurality are not sure. Among the hardcore birthers, Trump leads with 37%, almost three times as much support as anyone else. He comes in only third at 17% with those who are fine with a candidate that thinks the President was born in the country. Romney, who recently stated he believes Obama is a citizen, leads with 23% with that group but gets only 10% with birthers....Favorable/Unfavorable/Not sure:
Mike Huckabee 61/18/21 (+43)
Sarah Palin 61/31/8 (+30)
Mitt Romney 50/29/20 (+21)
Newt Gingrich 50/33/17 (+17)
Personal Note: If the Data in Question 10 is accurate and the mentality of 23% of Republicans is that they would be unwilling to support a candidate who firmly stated they believed Barack Obama was born in the United States, The Republican Party and the 2012 election is DOOMED! Because the party has been infiltrated by crazies!
