Hmm...15% of Dems, 12% of Liberals Are Birthers

I wonder why President Obama doesn't clear this issue up by requesting Hawaii release his long-form birth certificate? As long as "birthers" are only his political opponents, it might make sense to keep them confused. However, when a significant portion of his core supporters question his legitimacy, it makes no political sense to keep the issue of his birth in doubt.

The Washington Times reported:
Fourteen percent of Americans say without prompting that they think Barack Obama was born in another country, rising to one in five when those with no opinion are offered that as a possibility. But for many it’s not a firm belief – and some appear not to hold it against him....

….At the same time, 15 percent of Democrats say they think Obama was born elsewhere, as do 12 percent of liberals...
