From Talking Points Memo
Following the release of President Obama’s long-form birth certificate — a document skeptics claimed did not exist because Obama was supposedly born in a foreign country — the percentage of Americans who doubt Obama’s citizenship has plummeted, according to two new polls.
In a Washington Post/ABC News poll released Thursday, only 10 percent of Americans said Obama was born in a foreign country. That’s exactly half the percent who said the same last year.
And even among those who doubted Obama’s citizenship, far fewer are quite so confident in that stance now that Obama’s birth certificate has been released. Last year, nine percent of respondents said there was “solid evidence” to prove that Obama was born elsewhere. That number dropped to just one percent in the latest poll.
