Not even four in 10 people across America believe President Obama’s narrative about being born in Hawaii, according to a new poll.

A new 60 Minutes–Vanity Fair poll shows that only 39 percent of respondents believe Obama was born in Hawaii as he wrote in his book.

The magazine boasted, “A whopping 63 percent – very nearly two-thirds of us – went out on a limb and stated for the record that we believe in the United States. It’s enough to make you proud to be an American – or 63 percent proud, at any rate.”

But that included those who say they believe he was born in Kansas or some other unknown state, which still would conflict with Obama’s narrative.

The question asked, “Do you think Barack Obama was BORN IN the United States, or do you think he was born in another country?”

Thirty-nine percent said they believe he was born in Hawaii, 1 percent identified Kansas as his birthplace and 3 percent said “someplace else in the U.S.” A full one in five – 20 percent – said they were not sure in which state Obama was born.

Six percent identified Kenya as Obama’s birthplace, 2 percent picked Indonesia, 5 percent said someplace else outside of the U.S. and 11 percent said they were unsure which country.

The poll was done at the CBS News interviewing facility among a random sample of 960 adults nationwide June 1-3. Several “low-percentage” answer choices were omitted.

It was only a month ago when a WND/Wenzel Poll revealed  55 percent – or almost that same 61 percent of Americans who don’t believe Obama’s Hawaii birth story – want him to release all records relating to his childhood and his education, including college records, Harvard Law School papers, passport records, travel records and other similar documentation.

Questions about Obama’s eligibility to be president, exacerbated by his refusal to answer questions, release ordinary background documentation and his extraordinary legal maneuvers to keep his background hidden, have been on the radar of a number of top-level investigative reporters and news organizations since before his election.

Essentially, while the Constitution requires a president to be a “natural born citizen,” which is not the same as a “citizen,” none of the questions about Obama’s qualifications – or lack thereof – under that requirement have yet been answered.

At the time Fritz Wenzel of Wenzel Strategies said, “Simply put, this question about Obama’s legitimacy as president is undermining everything he does in the minds of millions of Americas.”

“Asked what should be done should it be found that Obama does not meet the qualifications to be president, 59 percent said he should be removed from office, and 35 percent said all bills signed into law by Obama should be repealed,” Wenzel said.

The WND/Wenzel poll said when asked about whether Obama’s background documentation – the school records, birth records and others – should be released, the 55 percent who said yes included more than 82 percent of the GOP, 55 percent of independents and nearly 28 percent of Democrats.

Further, another 17.1 percent of Americans said Obama should release some of his documentation, making it nearly three in four Americans who want the president to unlock the steel door on some or all of his background information.

Despite his campaign promises of transparency while in office, there has been no shortage of disputes over secrecy in the Obama administration. He’s already argued in court for more secrecy in the White House, claimed his work is “privileged” and apparently got rid of an inspector general who was applying heat to a friend.

The WND/Wenzel poll revealed 52 percent of Americans believe Obama is hiding something and 39 percent suspect he was not born in the U.S., frustrating efforts of the Obama administration to paint so-called “birthers” as a right-wing fringe.

“Even among Democrats, nearly one in four – 22 percent – said they either suspect he was not born in the U.S. or that they are not sure on the question,” Wenzel reported.

Last October, a poll revealed three in 10 Americans believe Obama is a “foreigner,” and nearly a year ago, a poll revealed the ranks of the so-called “birthers” growing.

A recent CBS–New York Times poll found 58 percent of Americans think he was born in the USA.
