Why is Barack Hussein Obama running, hiding, concealing, and denying when it comes to his Muslim background?
Various polls on Presidential elections indicate that he’d lose more than half the American people off the bat. Why can’t he openly admit his background–that he was a Muslim at one time in his life, even though he claims to be a Christian now?
Various polls show us the answer.
Gallup, Pew, the Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg and FOX News frequently do polls on the one thing–the one bugaboo–that would keep the average American from voting for a Presidential candidate, even if the candidate was ideal in every other category.
Americans are not stupid. They see the way Muslims around the world–and in America, too–act in the name of their religion. And more than half of them won’t vote for a Muslim for President.
In June, a nationwide LA Times/Bloomberg poll showed these results:
Would Not Vote for a Presidential Candidate who is
A December FOX News Poll shows these results:
Less likely to vote for a presidential candidate if the candidate is:
A Member of the Christian Coalition–24%
Percentage of Americans who won’t vote for a Presidential candidate who is . . .
Catholic: 4% (1937: 30%)
Black: 5% (1958: 63%, 1987: 21%)
Jewish: 6% (1937: 47%)
Gay: 37% (1978: 74%)
The proof is in the numbers. A Muslim candidate cannot become President at this point in time. And Barack Hussein Obama does not want Americans to know that, at the very least, at one point in his life, he was a Muslim. And is still very sypathetic to their viewpoint.
