    The independents are what put him in office and according to this poll, 61% want him to prove his eligibility. The poll revealed that he has a major problem of if he is a legitimate president and this constitutional issue is not going away. It seems that it is escalating, especially with Donald Trumph questioning his eligibility in the MSM last week. Obama has got to resolve this mess out of the respect of the American Voters.

    Wenzel Strategies » Polls

    Not even one person in 10 believes Barack Obama has shown that he is eligible to be president of the United States, according to a stunning new scientific poll that also reveals political Independents have less tolerance than even Republicans for his efforts to obfuscate the issue.

    "The shocking result in this survey is that just 9 percent said they believe Obama has met the requirements to prove he was born in the United States and is therefore qualified to be president," said Fritz Wenzel, chief of Wenzel Strategies, which conducted the assessment.

    "Even when you combine those who say such questions are not valid with those who believe he has satisfied the requirements, it still falls short of equaling the percentage who said he should step forward and prove his birth origin once and for all," he said.

    “What is most interesting is the response on this question of Independent voters: Fully 61 percent of Independents said they want Obama to prove once and for all his birth origin, which is a higher percentage than even among Republicans. Men are also somewhat more skeptical than women,” Wenzel said.

    “At a time when this country faces dramatic problems both here at home and around the world, it does harm to Obama’s credibility and undermines the confidence of the American people to have this question hanging out there,” Wenzel explained. “One can only imagine the storm of controversy that might ensue if we discover definitively after his presidency is over that he was not qualified to hold office. The resignation of Richard Nixon would pale by comparison in terms of undermining public confidence in government.

    (Emphasis added: This is what Hawaii Governor Neil Albercrombie said he was afraid of , that it would harm Obama in the 2012 campaign and that's why he wanted to end the controversy by showing the real birth certificate)

    “A corollary issue to the Obama birth certificate is the question about Obama’s refusal to release educational records, which could hold some clue as to his birth origin and early citizenship,” Wenzel said. “Two-thirds of all respondents want those records released, while the other third of respondents oppose the release of those records. It remains unclear why Obama will not comply with any requests to show those records to the public.”

    For Obama.
    Do I think the birthers are off? Yes.
    But the Independents win elections.

    The poll was paid for by WorldNetDaily to promote a political agenda. Their reporting also pushes a political agenda. This is what is known as "push polling," whereby the pollster attempts to shape public opinion by leading or obscuring the questions.

    Also, on its website, the polling firm, Wenzel Strategies, includes a testimonial from a political consulting firm that is owned by ... the owner of Wenzel Strategies!

    Why is World Net Daily artificially boosting the Birther Movement? | Turning the Scale

    The sample also appears to be biased. For example, the historical ideological break-down of Americans is about 40% conservative, 40% moderate and 20% liberal, give or take a few points. In the survey, it was 51/35/14, which is outside the 95% confidence interval of prior surveys on ideological leanings.

    Finally, it is inconsistent with other polls on the birther issue. In prior polls, roughly half or less of Republicans could be called birthers. The general population is significantly less.

    As usual as your continued predilection for irrelevancy demonstrates, you lack the insight to engage in political debate on the issues. Please elaborate on the dynamics of the poll where 61% of Independents want Obama to prove his eligibility. Why do you think people think Obama is ineligible?

    Just to show how inaccurate this poll is, WorldPublicOpinion found that 15% of Americans are birthers.

    Voters Say Election Full of Misleading and False Information - World Public Opinion

    A CNN poll confirmed the same, though those doubting where he was born was higher.

    Half of likely Republican primary voters are birthers, which is much lower than what is implied in the WND survey.
