I can’t find a link, but I heard on WUNC that Public Policy Polling, the nonpartisan Raleigh, N.C.-based polling firm, found that roughly half of North Carolina residents either don’t think or don’t know if President Obama was born in the United States.
I’m not sure if anything since the tenure of Senator Jesse Helms has made me more embarrassed to be a resident of the Tarheel State.
I can’t stand this much stupid.

WUNC’s Laura Leslie has reported the actual results
Apparently, 10% of North Carolinians don’t think that Hawaii is part of the United States. That is a lower number than what I would have expected.
