Ugh

After years of battling false claims and viral e-mails alleging that he is a Muslim, President Obama hasn’t gotten far among Republican voters in Alabama and Mississippi – about half still believe he is Muslim and about one in four believe his parents’ interracial marriage should have been illegal, a new poll shows.

The poll of Mississippi Republicans found that 52 percent said they believe Obama is a Muslim, 36 percent weren’t sure and only 12 percent said they believe he is a Christian. He fared slightly better in Alabama, where 45 percent said he is a Muslim, 41 percent weren’t sure, and 14 percent said he is a Christian.

This is largely why I find discussing politics with family when I’m back home really frustrating.  It’s like they live in an alternate reality.
