Picture of the day

What you are staring at is a screenshot of a Vanity Fair/60 Minutes poll that touches on a ton of things. In the 10 question survey readers were asked such questions as "Do you think the allegations against Lance Armstrong are true?" and "What happens after you die?". Question number 8 touched on a subject that was put to rest years ago. The question asked "Do you think Barack Obama was BORN IN the United States or do you think he was born in another country?". As you can clearly see the largest portion of people correctly guessed that he was born in Hawaii. Shockingly 20% of people weren't sure of which state he was born in,1 percent said he was born in Kansas and 3 percent said someplace else in the USA. Of course the part that really sticks out is that about one fourth of the people that responded to the survey said that he was born somewhere outside of America. This can only lead me to one conclusion....about 1 in 4 people in this country happen to be stupid.
