Donald Trump is now tied with Mike Huckabee for first place when Republicans are asked who they support for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, according to a new national poll.
Here’s what I’d like to know: are there Republicans who are single-issue voters on birtherism? That is, are there Republican primary voters who will vote for whichever candidate embraces birtherism most strongly? I suspect that there are, and if I had to guess the percentage, it would be 27% of Republican primary voters.
Update. Someone in an earlier thread suggested that birtherism might be become an accepted fact like Al Gore saying he invented the internet, but headlines like this indicate that’s a bridge too far for the media “President Obama’s Half-Sister Is Asked About Birther Nonsense“. Granted, Tapper is one of the better DC reporters out there, but Candy Crowley wasn’t having any of it either and she’s not one of the better ones.
