After seven, eight years of this purposeful ignorance Republican voters have about President Obama’s faith, I have to say that it’s just getting stupidly tiresome.
A majority of Republican voters, 54 percent, think that President Obama is a Muslim, according to a new survey from the left-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP).
Asked whether they thought Obama is a Christian or Muslim or if they were unsure, 32 percent said they were unsure. Fourteen percent said he was a Christian.
Many right-leaning voters have been deeply skeptical about Obama’s faith since before he became president.
The topic arose again prominently in 2012, when Obama faced former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a devout Mormon, in the general election.
Obama rarely invokes his own faith in speeches and public appearances, though has remarked about his Christian faith during comments for holidays such as Easter.
Only 29% of Republicans believe the President was born in the US too, so can we just finally admit all this is code word, dog whistle, Southern Strategy racism already and that Republicans have done nothing to even address the problem?
When only one in seven Republicans can correctly identify President Obama as a Christian after seven years as President, the other six Republicans are doing it on purpose. I’m sorry that you’re either too stupid or too racist to accept the truth about the guy, and at this point I know that tens of millions of Americans will insist that he was a Dirty Kenyan Mooslim Terr’ist polluting white evangelical Christian bodily fluids with his caliphate/witch doctor powers right up until their deathbeds.
And while I don’t know what PPP’s numbers for Democrats are in this particular poll, given the past history of that figure it’s not that much less of an awful one.
It shouldn’t bother me that America is still filled with racist trash given the history of this country from day one, but yeah, it does, and that’s not changing in my lifetime.
