(Newser) – Bit of bad news for President Obama: The latest CNN/ORC poll shows that nearly a third of Americans and 43% of Republicans still believe he's Muslim. Breaking that down, 39% of adults say he's Protestant or another kind of Christian, 29% say he's Muslim, 14% don't know, and among the remaining numbers, 2% say he's Mormon and 1% say he's Jewish. And according to another recent poll, 66% of Donald Trump supporters say the president is Muslim, reports the Huffington Post. On the upside for Obama, 80% of adults have apparently shrugged off The Donald's concerns and come to believe that Obama was born American, per CNN/ORC. CNN's take seems straightforward: "Obama was born in Hawaii and is a Christian." (Read more President Obama stories.)
