Birther Poll: 42 Percent Of Republicans Believe Obama Not Born In U.S.

A new study from Public Policy Polling finds that 42 percent of Republicans believe that President Obama was not born in the United States, while 22 percent still remain uncertain of his birthplace origin. On the flip side, the poll also finds that 25 percent of Democrats believe that George W. Bush intentionally allowed the September 11th attacks to occur to serve as a catalyst for a war in the Middle East.

Public Policy Poll's study surfaces at the tail end of an extremely partisan health care debate. The findings are a striking picture of America's increasingly polarized political climate.
