New Poll: 48% Of Republicans Say Obama Does Not Love America — 27% Say He Does

October 20, 2009 10:36 a.m.

More than half of Republicans either say President Obama doesn’t love America or say they aren’t sure of his feelings toward the country he leads.

That’s according to a new national poll due out tomorrow from Public Policy Polling. The firm gave TPMDC an early look this afternoon.

PPP polled 766 registered voters nationwide. Of the GOP respondents, 27% agreed that Obama “loves America,” 48% disagreed and 25% said they weren’t sure.“It was the first time we asked that question,” PPP’s Tom Jensen told TPMDC. “But it’s very similar to the birther numbers we’ve seen before.”

“It’s just more confirmation that Obama’s opponents will say anything,” he added.
