    Obama and public opinion

    There is a lot of people believing that Obama was not born in the USA, especially conservatives share that belief. The same goes for the faith of Obama. Since we do have a lot of right wing people here, I am a bit curious, hence this poll.

    The poll is anonymous. Feel free to comment as well.

    I would rather change the poll to whether he was an effective President.

    Irrelevant the rest of the questions.

    Also worth a debate. Perhaps for another thread?

    I hope they are, but I am not sure. When quite a lot of right wing people in the USA believe that Obama is a Muslim and/or not born in the US, I find it interesting if that goes for the right wing people in here too.

    Surely its public fact he was born in Hawaii, so your political leaning has no relevance.

    As for his religion, is that of any importance?

    Like TWD, asking if he was a decent Pres' is a more viable question, but you will get lefties saying yes and right wingers saying he was terrible. A lose lose poll I'm afraid.

    It sure does have a relevance if you look at which part of the US population who still believe he was born somewhere else than in the US. However, the poll does not ask of the respondent's political leaning, the lefties can feel free to answer as well, and their answers will also be anonymous.

    Not to me, still interesting to know if the right wing people in here share what a large part of the right wing people in the US believe about the president.

    Waiting for the 'rider' in other words GD.

    This poll as it now sits will reveal nought and is easily manipulated.

    When you set up a poll, you can chose whether the names and votes should be published. I felt that maybe some would not vote according to their conviction if their vote was known.

    It's not even a poll GD... it's six indepdent questions? So how can you choose one? Each question needs a yes or no answer...

    There are actually two polls there:

    Question 1) Where was Obama born?


    • in the USA?
    • in Kenyea?
    • somewhere else?


    Question 2) What religion is Obama?


    • a Christian?
    • a Muslim?
    • another faith?

    Yes there are two polls. No need for 6 answers, 1 or 2 will do. If you tick of Born in Kenya, there is no reason to tick off born in the US or elsewhere, same same religion.

    I'm having a difficult time coping with most things since "slampay" suggested a narrative where michelle opened his/her legs for me!

    Post trauma stress has rendered me pretty helpless at the moment.

    Could I please have a little more time with my coloring books and comfort dog, before I have to answer this polling?

    I think one of my kids has some Play-Doh laying around somewhere. Will that help? 555
    Get out there in the game, don't sit up in the bleachers. That is the philosophy of pimps and preachers.

    IMO, 99% of Americans really don't care where was born (I'm in this group), or what religion he is> Personally, I think he favors Muslims while in fact not really being one.
    As to his job as president, I'll just say I think he is THE most divisive president in my lifetime. Where he should have used his power to bring people together, he did just the opposite (elections have consequences). And his signature piece of legislation will soon be rendered moot. So the conclusion is obvious.
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.

    To me, Obama's biggest legacy by a mile... is just being elected... in fact being elected twice... gives everyone hope.. no matter what your background... you can make it to the top... though the American people as much as Obama should take credit for that...
