From where the misinformation?

Listeners at KBIO radio in Boise were asked to participate in a (self-selecting) online survey about President Barack Obama. Results on which they think describes the president best:

A foreign born Muslim – 49%
A foreign born Christian – 3%
An American born Muslim – 7%
An American born Christian – 22%
A president with really big ears – 20%

“Foreign-born Muslim” was actually up to 55% yesterday.

Where do these people get their misinformation – garbage that has been so repeatedly debunked over a period of years? In the case of this poll, the participants presumably were mostly KBOI listeners – local home of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and other conservative talkers. Given that, the surprise may be that the 49% or 55% isn’t even higher.
