Trump, Americans doubts Pres. Obama Birthplace and Religion

A new CNN/ORC poll finds that although misperceptions about Barack Obama's religious beliefs and background persist, they are not as widespread as some recent polling has suggested. Obama was born in Hawaii and is a Christian.

Overall, when asked "Where was Obama born, as far as you know?" Some adults said they believe Obama was born in the United States. The others said that he was born outside the country, including those who believe there is solid evidence of that and few people who say it is just their suspicion.

While some polling has suggested that substantial numbers of Republicans, particularly Donald Trump's backers, doubted that Obama was born in the United States, the new survey suggests most Republicans think Obama was born in the country.
While considering a 2011 run for the presidency, Trump raised questions about the president's birthplace, pushing for the release of his long-form birth certificate, and recently told CNN's Anderson Cooper that he didn't know whether Obama was born in the United States.
