    25%. Really?
    this reminds me of a great South Park quote:
    "One quarter of Americans believes this Kyle, are you really calling 1/4 of America stupid?!"
    "Yes"
    "How can you do that?"
    "Well lets take an informal poll.
    There are four of us, you're an idiot...there 1/4".

    Three conflicts, a serious recession, unemployment, a rising debt and this is the issue Trump decides to make his flagship issue. Hey Donald....."you are fired," and you were not even hired yet.

    Obama is President now so the birth certificate issue doesn't really matter. Obama's appeal is partly due to his diverse upbringing and background and the fact that he's lived all over the world. In reality, I don't think an African-American named "John Smith" from Detroit would have won the election at this time anyways. Republicans are just trying to find a way to discredit him before the next Presidential Race. It's a shame that the Republicans can't find one credible candidate for the next election. Maybe, it's just not their time. Which is great for Obama supporters like myself.

    Just show the official true birth certificate. If it shows that he is not officially an American citizen.....impeach him and try him for any crimes that he has committed. If it shows that he is an American citizen.......vote him out in 2012. What is there to hide, that is the question.

    Obama has admitted he was born in Kenya. Lets move on. We were fooled, and too dumbed down to know what we are voting for..

    I believe Obama was born in the USA. There is no reason why he should not produce his Birth Certificate. It is easy to get a duplicate if you have lost the original. Put all this nonsense to rest and show the "Birthers" the original or a duplicate and let's all move on.

    Proves it all- If you are conservative, have a poor education and are poor- you believe Obama is a foreigner. Good stats! They demonstrate just how the GOP/TP fear machine works.

    I am glad to see someone else who is ready to move on. This is getting so old and annoying. No matter what the President dos, Trump would still say he was not born in American. Of course, Trump is planning on running for President himself. However, I wonder when we as Americans will start to see how we are being brainwashed by hearing all this negativity. I cut off the tv more now, and I do not even listen to the radio. We live in the Greatest country in the world and we have to put up with such garbage. Just thought I would vent.

    A – It's not the media's fault this time!!! You're blaming the messenger. Donald Trump is polling well for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2012, asn saying he may run. It's ridiculous, I think it's just a publicity stunt. But the polls give im a chance, at least now they do. So when a legitimate candidate for a major party presidential nomination brings this up, what do you think the media should do? Ignore him? Of course they reported it.

    By the way, I think Obama is playing this perfectly. By just remaining quiet, he let's conservatives and tea party backers look increasingly stupid and marginal. It ruins the entire brand, because if they believe this crazy conspiracy crap, why would a voter trust them on anything else?

    He's not doing anything, just watching the tea party form a circular firing squad.
