Markos: “There is a sizeable component of the Republican base that does not believe that Barack Obama is an American”

Markos has the research to back it up. As I mentioned earlier, DailyKos released polling on the birthers. It’s what you’d expect: lots of Republicans (58%) and lots of Southerners (53%) are either confirmed birthers or aren’t sure if Obama was born in the U.S.

Tonight, Markos did the Ed Schultz Show and Olbermann to discuss the polls and the birther phenomenon which was engulfed the GOP. Here’s the Ed Show appearance:

On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
