(Newser) – President Obama's long-form birth certificate has done bad things to Donald Trump's political popularity. In a Public Policy Polling survey, he dropped from first place (26%) to fifth place (8%) in the span of a month. What's more, 53% of GOP voters now hold a negative view of him, compared with 34% who like him.

In short, he "has had one of the quickest rises and falls in the history of Presidential politics," writes PPP. The new leaders: Mike Huckabee (19%), Mitt Romney (18%), Newt Gingrich (13%), and Sarah Palin (12%). Others mentioned in the survey: Ron Paul (8%), Michele Bachmann (7%), and Tim Pawlenty (5%).

Ah come-on !!!! Where's America's sense of humour? We were just getting warmed up laughing at this clown and now the fun is almost over. I just love watching the Donald walk like an ancient Egyptian so his head mop doesn't unravel. One of other candidates so much as farts near him and everyone would see that his entire doo is actually one 20 mile long hair. And even that one was transplanted from a red-headed French Poodle.I guess the Arab world is relieved to learn that they're not about to get nuked for their oil.

Fickle idiots. Just wave the red meat and they start to salivate ... like dogs. Remove the meat, they lose interest.
