Nearly one in three say Obama a Muslim

President Barack Obama speaks at Cairo University in Cairo, Thursday, June 4, 2009.

Oddly enough, two percent think Obama is a Mormon, although I can’t see how that could happen.

CNN said:

Misperceptions about Obama’s religious beliefs are more common than those about his birth, particularly among Republicans. Overall, 29% of Americans say they think the President is a Muslim, including 43% of Republicans.

No doubt this will be asked about at the upcoming debate…
