Prior to the 2008 Presidential election, less than one quarter of Americans doubted Obama’s eligibility. However, as awareness about his illegitimacy spreads throughout the world, a recent poll shows the number of doubters has doubled…and is growing.

Des Moines, IA – More than half of Iowa Republicans do not believe Barack Obama is eligible to be president says a recent poll.
A Public Policy Polling survey taken December 16th through December 18th reveals that 52 percent of GOP voters in the Electoral lead-off state believe that Obama is either not a Natural Born citizen or they have doubts about Obama’s natal eligibility to hold the office of president.
While asking the respondent if they believe Obama was born in the U.S., the poll does not ask if the respondent is aware that Obama’s alleged father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of Obama’s birth or if the respondent knows the definition of a Natural Born Citizen.
Historical and legal precedence warrants that natal geography is only one of three determining factors of Natural-born citizenship. The other determining factors are the citizenship status of both parents at the time of the birth, and the continuity of Natural-born status of the candidate from birth to election.
Along with Obama’s unsubstantiated birth place documentation, it has been proven that Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr., was not a U.S. citizen at the time of Obama’s birth and there is documented evidence that Obama lost his Natural-born status when he left the United States and was adopted as an Indonesian citizen by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro in 1967. The culmination of these facts renders Barack Obama an illegitimate president of the United States and criminal usurper of the office.
The poll shows that 31 percent of the nearly 600 respondents are certain that Obama is not a natural born citizen while another 21 percent have doubts about his Constitutional eligibility based solely on the question of his place of birth, not his foreign parentage or loss of continuity.
Interestingly, 65% of those surveyed said they do not have a favorable opinion of the Republican establishment in Washington D.C., yet, despite this political dissuasion, 56% of them are still not convinced Obama is a legitimate President. This indicates a growing trend that voters are becoming more aware of Obama’s ineligibility apart from party-based media propaganda and are more willing to separate their political affiliations from the facts about Obama’s biography. Democrats are growing less likely to accept Obama’s claim that he is constitutionally eligible.
The poll also shows that Government spending/National debt is the biggest concern of those surveyed (37%), not ecomony/jobs (30%) as government officials falsely portray.
Indicative of public consciousness about Obama’s past, nearly 1 in 7 respondents who voted for Obama’s party in the 2008 Caucus are at least doubtful that Obama is a Natural Born Citizen, according to the poll.
This poll was not paid for or authorized by any campaign or political organization. PPP surveys are conducted through automated telephone interviews. PPP is a Democratic polling company, but the New York Times portrayed its surveys in 2010 as being slightly biased toward Republican candidates.
