Poll: What’s your favorite birther image from 2014?

I have a couple of images from 2014 that are my personal favorites. One is the logo for the Orly Taitz Super PAC. Originally, the OTSPAC had laughably bad graphics, leading many to the correct opinion that the site was a spoof. The spiffy updated graphic made the site a little more credible. The anonymous designer is not a Taitz supporter, and was not responsible for putting up the site.

My other favorite image is one I made myself, altering a real TV news clip showing Mike Zullo, and highlighting the “universe shattering” revelations that never happened.

Commenters have offered another Zullo image (courtesy of RC Radio), part of the brief KPHO-TV interview where Zullo admitted taking the $10,000 gift:

Poll: Obama most admired man–7 years running

imageIn what must be the occasion of immeasurable consternation for the birthers, a Gallup Poll of Americans conducted December 8-11, 2012, found Barack Obama to the most admired man in the world (followed by Pope Francis). This the 7th year in a row that Obama topped the list (incumbent presidents almost always win).

Who knew?

Rasmussen: 23% say Obama not American citizen

Numbers in a mid-July Rasmussen poll reported today show a remarkable similarity in the number of people who believe Obama is not an American citizen and the number of people who believe that the US government was complicit in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Question Yes Undecided No
Obama not US Citizen 23% 17% 60%
US knew about 9/11 in advance and did nothing 24% 19% 57%
Space aliens crashed at Roswell, New Mexico 20% 33% 47%
Moon landing fake 14% 12% 74%

Notes from the infectious disease ward

UPDATE: Orly’s site is entirely down now. [5 PM EDT, 2 July 2014]

UPDATE 2: It’s back up.

This the third day since Google again identified OrlyTaitzESQ.com as an attack site, passing on malware to visitors. I take such warnings more seriously than I used to. Here’s a taste of what’s going on at the Taitz web site obtained through the browser on my phone.

Taitz continues to focus on immigration issues with this headline yesterday:

  • Response from Attorney Orly Taitz to Obama’s today’s speech: our immigration system is not broken, the only thing that is broken, is the path of neuron connections in Obama’s brain. Obama did not need to dispatch Biden to Central America to search for the cause of the problem, he had to dispatch himself to the nearest mirror

Taitz is praying for more Republicans to drive drunk in this item about Pete Perry who was quoted on this blog yesterday. The title of the article is:

  • As some of you may be aware by now, Hinds County GOP chair Pete Perry, a man that many believe is behind the shenanigans on June 24, was arrested for speeding and drunk driving this past Saturday night. Here is his mugshot. Hopefully there will be more pics like this in the future! We can only pray!

Most think Obama eligible, but just barely

Shocking new "Natural Born Citizen" Poll

Coincidence is high with me a YouGov contributor who was arguing with Devvy Kidd in email today about what “natural born citizen” means (she’s a disciple of Donofrio and Apuzzo) and a new poll of 1,000 persons from YouGov (they didn’t ask me) on this very topic comes out.

It turns out that the answer depends a lot on your politics, but overwhelmingly (77%) Americans would classify people like President Obama (born in the US to a US citizen mother and an alien father) as eligible. Nevertheless, when Obama is named, only 56% call him eligible (13% not sure), and only 39% say that for Ted Cruz (44% not sure). Another way to put it is that 31% believe Barack Obama is not legally eligible to be the president, slightly over the 27% of Americans that are just crazy in general.

A shocking 51% of republicans think Obama is ineligible with 14% not sure. In general those who believe Obama eligible tend to be young,  black,  northeastern, Democrat or liberal.

Here is the YouGov summary page, but I prefer the details. Only a plurality correctly say that a child born in the US to two non-citizen parents is eligible (47% yes, 40% no and 13% not sure).

A majority (61%) believe that someone born overseas to two US Citizen parents is eligible, but if that is reduced to one parent, then it drops to only about 30% voting for eligible.

There is a certain flakiness factor in the results, given that only 91% believe that a child born in the United States to two citizen parents is eligible (with 5% saying “no” and 4% “not sure”). Also 6% say that someone born outside the US to no US citizen parents is eligible (and 7% not sure).
