Barack Obama citizenship conspiracy theories reject the legitimacy of President of the United States Barack Obama’s citizenship and his eligibility to be President. Some of these conspiracy theories allege that Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii, and that his birth certificate is a forgery.
Via Talking Points Memo, a new Public Policy Polling survey finds that only 59 percent of Americans believe President Obama was born in the United States. Among Republicans, a plurality of 51 percent say he was not born here, while 28 percent say he was. The birthers, however, aren’t even the craziest wing of the party: 19 percent of Republicans think Obama is the Antichrist.
