Have literally millions of birthers been rounded up and moved to FEMA camps? Have they been murdered and buried en masse at sea? Did the appearance of Barack Obama’s long form cause blood pressure spikes and ruptured aneurysms leading to death of 1 out of 2 birthers?
Whatever the cause, millions of birthers have literally disappeared, according to a recent Washington Post telephone poll of 1006 adults taken April 28 – May 1, 20111. The Post said:
Overall, 10 percent of Americans say Obama was likely born abroad, down from 20 percent in an April 2010 Post-ABC poll. Almost all those who now say Obama was born in a foreign country say that it’s only their “suspicion;” just 1 percent claim “solid evidence” that the president was born elsewhere (9 percent said so last year).
I always thought that the birther numbers were “soft” but I never thought they were that soft. I hate to say “I told you so,” but the birther movement has peaked.
