President Barack Obama has always said that he is a Christian, but many in Alabama and Mississippi believe he is a Muslim, not Christian, or unsure.
The Public Policy Polling (PPP) has released new data showing that a majority of likely Republican primary voters rolling in the Deep South don’t see Obama as a Christian.
PPP's Alabama survey of 600 likely GOP primary voters found that only 14 percent consider Obama a Christian, while 45 percent see him as a Muslim and 41 percent answered that they were not sure.
In Mississippi, of 656 likely GOP primary voters surveyed, 12 percent said Obama was a Christian, 52 percent classified him as a Muslim, and 36 percent fell in the "not sure" category.
Similarly, Mississippi is the poorest state in America and when asked about Obama and politics, their deep-rooted belief is that Obama is destroying the country.
Religion rumors are nothing new for Obama. Back in August 2010, one-fifth of all Americans believed that Obama was a Muslim born in Kenya. The fact of the matter is, his father was from Kenya but Obama has only visited the region as an adult re-connecting with his half-brothers, sisters and aunts.
