According to polls, a majority (51%) of Republican Primary voters are now "birthers," meaning they believe President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S. Another 21% say Obama may not have been born in the U.S. Which means, 72% of GOP primary voters are conspiracy theorists or "apprentice" conspiracy theorists. And the new speaker of the House John Boehner isn't exactly doing much to stop the ignorance.
