Alabama and Mississippi Republicans are not that far apart on whether President Obama is Muslim according to new numbers by Democratic pollster PPP. Its worse than the the poll on Republican voters nationwide.
Asked whether Obama is Christian or Muslim, some 45 percent of Alabama Republican respondents picked Muslim; 14 percent correctly identified him as Christian. Another 41 percent said they were unsure. In Mississippi, a majority of Republicans, 52 percent, identified Obama as Muslim; 12 percent said he was Christian and 36 percent were undecided.
Republican apologists can't excuse this since their own leadership won't give straight repudiations of these attacks on Obama, because their afraid the fringe base they're reaching out to.
