1 in 5 think Obama’s a Muslim?

Frankly, I don’t believe the recent Pew Research poll that indicates 1 in 5 Americans believe President Obama is a Muslim.  Sure, there’s some percentage of abjectly ignorant people who think that, but what this poll shows, IMHO, is the willingness of people who simply hate the president’s policies–or his race–enough to claim the worst about him in any category.  Had the Pew poll asked “Does Obama smell bad?” 20% would probably say yes, even though they’ve never been in downwind proximity to the Commander in Chief.

I’m more inclined to believe the 43% of Americans who say they are unsure of the president’s religious affiliation.  Since the president’s public falling-out with his Chicago church, the first family have not regularly worshiped with any particular congregation.
