WND Birther poll gives slim chance for lawsuits

2813 persons have responded to the following poll at WorldNetDaily. Only 5% of respondents believe that Obama’s eligibility will be determined by a civil lawsuit (even though this option was listed first on the poll).  I certainly agree with that conclusion, at least until the next election cycle.

What I found most remarkable was that the number one answer basically says that there is no proof available to the public that Obama is ineligible, but that they are certain of it anyway.

Thanks to my source, Deep Birther, for the link.

The truth is already out there, that he is hiding information precluding him from being eligible for the presidency 43% (1200)
We’ll never know the truth, unfortunately 16% (463)
When a new Congress takes over and presses the issue to a conclusion 15% (419)
When he’s indicted and proof will be demanded by a court 11% (308)
Money will change hands that will lead to key information suddenly becoming public 6% (171)
A civil lawsuit will finally see success 5% (133)
Other 2% (57)
Get over it. He’s already disclosed the truth that
he was born in Hawaii
1% (31)
He finally steps up to the plate, and releases his long-form, hospital birth certificate 1% (19)
A true relative or someone present at the birth will come out of the woodwork to reveal the truth 0% (10)
He’ll address America in a heartfelt discussion to come clean no matter what the truth is 0% (2)

    like a lot of biased polls, this one makes sure that responses that don’t correspond to the sponsor’s own established position are broken up into a large number of alternates, none of which can garner enough votes to challenge the preferred narrative.

    So WND has just 31 readers functioning on the same plane of reality as the rest of us?

    Interesting news about Orly Taitz: Orly is thinking about running for Office. She has her eyes on 2 positions: The Attorney General of California or the SOS of California. If Orly could manage to get one these positions, she would have standing to bring suit against Obama. As SOS, Orly would have power to stop the certification of votes in California in the 2012 election until Obama eligibility could be ascertained. There is more information on Orly Blog about it.

    Orly Taitz for Attorney General.

    Orly Taitz for Secretary of State.

    let’s vote Orly in there.

    the odds of Orly winning either of those seats are about on par to the odds of her winning any of her inane suits.

    and neither of those positions would allow her to hoist her fantasy definition of natural born citizen upon the rest of the nation. If she asked for evidence of qualification, all it would take is the president sending her the same COLB he posted on the internet (but this time she would be the benefit of actually seeing a real one). Any attempt to cause any other B.S. would get her what she is very used to, getting slapped upside the head by a judge for being an idiot with no clue, and a JD pulled from a box of crackerjacks.

    Orly might actually have a chance at winning.
    Consider this giving the fact that California is a very liberal state.

    33 Percent Of Californians Believe Obama Is Foreign-Born

    LOS ANGELES (KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO) — Two-thirds of Californians believe President Obama was born in the United States, making him qualified to lead the nation. But the other third surveyed in a new Field Poll said they either don’t buy that, or aren’t sure. And if you keep the question just to Republicans, that number climbs to 58 percent.

    The so-called “birther” movement claims the President was actually born overseas, making him ineligible for the White House. Over a dozen lawsuits have challenged his Hawaiian birth certificate, but they’ve all failed.

    “you must feel lonely having such a narrow veiw”

    How can I be lonely when I have the same view as 69 million other voters?

    ROTFL…

    You’re a funny dude

    Orly so far has won nothing… History tends to repeat itself and the RNC will never align itself with such crackpot ideas…
    Then again…
    What an opportunity to solidify the democratic position in CA.

    Thanks John

    Which matches very closely the election results- 61% of Californians voted for Barack Obama, 37% voted for John McCain.

    California has a liberal majority but a very strong, very conservative, very vocal minority. Luckily most of them are conservative, not necessarily completely unable to identify a loon.

    I don’t think we Californians would elect a whacko like Orly but though I would pay money to see her in a debate with virtually any other credible candidate.

    First off, the very clip you posted does not support your statement that 33 percent believe he is foreign born. It says a third believe he is foreign born or aren’t sure (you left off that other half). And big surprise, most of that number comes from Republicans.

    So you have a majority of a minority party believing in a fringe conspiracy theory, and somehow you conclude that the nutty poster child for this “movement” who has a great habit of coming off as a complete nut job everytime she gets infront of a camera has a chance of winning….yeah….good like with that.

    but then again, you haven’t let reality stop you thus far, why should it now?

    I find the “other” category in that poll creepy. I think I have some idea of what at least some of these responders are thinking of. Horrible.

    Well, the internal poll by WND just provides more confirming evidence that WND’s followers are mostly made of the nutty birther crowd and therefore is a “news source” for only a small percent of the population with very non-mainstream views. Let’s face it, WND is nothing more than an on. Are the results sad…yes – but then again, look at the source. There is a good reason that non-WND fans refer to it as “World Nut Daily”.

    line, far-right wing “National Enquirer” type of rag, with even less credibility than that trash mag.

    Yeah, good luck with that John.

    ROTFL! Actually, I really, really, really hope she finds a way to try to run because the pure entertainment value of watching her campaign is just too good to pass up.

    Do I seriously think she’d stand a snowball’s chance in hell of getting elected? No. But the journey would be so fun to watch.

    So yes, I’m totally hoping she commits to this and her followers continue to let her huckster them and keep pushing that paypal button in order to maker her campaign a reality!

    At first, didn’t WND say the COLB was legitimate and that Obama was born in Hawaii?
    Then I guess they realized there was money to be made off hard-working morons.
