I don’t know what’s happening, but access to older Birther Report material is deteriorating rapidly.
I entered “gallups site:birtherreport.com” at Google and got only 15 results, all fairly recent.
What about Birther Report’s internal search?
I entered “zullo” and got 32 hits, all from November or December of 2014 (talk about fixation on Zullo). I think the were talking about Zullo before then.
So is Birther Report madly scrubbing content or something? That’s an interesting question. When you go to their home page, you can click “Load More” a few times, but that stops working on November 22, 2014.

Another way to get to Birther Report content is through their old domain, ObamaReleaseYourRecords.blogspot.com.
There are comments from BirtherReport suggesting some kind of a problem 6 and 4 weeks ago that is being “worked through.” Birther Report has always been a mess, with links to articles from Intense Debate that don’t work. Now it’s a disaster.
[Update: both the BirtherReport and ObamaReleaseYourRecords websites no longer exist.]
