See what happens when you try to dig up dirt on people? You get dirty yourself.
A new poll shows that for as many people as the “Birthers” have convinced to doubt President Obama’s birthplace, almost as many people doubt Donald “Me And The Blacks Are Cool” Trump’s origins.
Donald Trump’s relentless birther campaign received a significant boost today when a poll revealed fewer than four in ten American voters believe Barack Obama was definitely born in the U.S.
But the poll showed Mr Trump’s own background is also under the spotlight – fewer than half those who completed it said they were sure he was born on American soil.
Despite the fact the Celebrity Apprentice star scores top of Republican polls for 2012 presidential nominations, 50 per cent of Americans, including 31 per cent of Republicans, said he would make a ‘poor’ or ‘terrible’ president.
It seems the birther issue isn’t driving support for Mr Trump, either. Among those who say they definitely or might vote for Mr Trump just a third question Mr Obama’s birthplace.
According to the poll, voters who believe the president wasn’t born in Hawaii tend to support Mr Trump’s Republican rivals Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee.
So all that “birther” yang is just going to guarantee that people vote for someone other than Trump? Carry on then, Toupee Face!
