The Drudge Report is leading this morning with the headline, “Shock Poll: 1 out of 4 Think Obama Muslim.” They link to a Time article that says 24% believe Obama to be a Muslim:
Considering his muslim roots, his statement that America is a muslim country, his de facto denial of Islamic terrorism and the sternness of his admonishment to Americans opposed to the infamous mosque, I ask, where is the shock in a poll that reveals that 24% believe Obama is a muslim?

The survey also revealed that many Americans harbor lingering animosity toward Muslims. Twenty-eight percent of voters do not believe Muslims should be eligible to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. Nearly one third of the country thinks adherents of Islam should be barred from running for President — slightly higher than the 24% who mistakenly believe that the current occupant of the Oval Office is himself a Muslim. In all, just 47% of respondents believe Obama is a Christian; 24% declined to respond to the question or said they were unsure, and 5% believe he is neither Christian nor Muslim.
Mistakenly believe? Is that a fact? Does Time know something the rest of us do not? Put me in the 5%, at least for now. But I will not declare the 24% “mistaken” for they could be right.
