Online poll of KBOI listeners: Obama is a foreign-born Muslim

(UPDATE, noon Thursday. KBOI reports receiving 956 votes, and the percentages have changed: 48 percent say Obama is a foreign-born Muslim; 2 percent say he's a foreign-born Christian; 7 percent call him an American-born Muslim; 23 percent says he's an American-born Christian; and 19 percent say he's a president with big ears.)

Original post from Tuesday afternoon:

Sixty percent of listeners who responded to an online survey by the Boise radio station say President Barack Obama is a Muslim, more than twice the figure in a recent national poll.

Fifty-five percent of respondents to the non-scientific poll said Obama is a foreign-born Muslim and 5 percent said he is a native-born Muslim. Another 5 percent said Obama was Christian, but foreign born.

KBOI host Nate Shelman said Tuesday afternoon that 716 respondents replied to the online poll Monday afternoon and night and before 1 p.m. Tuesday. During Monday's show, Shelman discussed a Newsweek poll that found 24 percent of respondents said Obama was a Muslim/Follower of Islam.

Obama has repeatedly said he is a Christian.

Newsweek's Aug. 25-26 poll did not ask what voters thought about Obama's birthplace. State records and contemporaneous newspaper reports show he was born in Hawaii and efforts to challenge his right to run for and serve as president as a non-native have been rejected by federal courts.

Shelman spent his three-hour show focused on the issue of religion and birthplace and chose "birthers" as the code word for Monday's KBOI rewards program.

Shelman summarized what his listeners had to say on the topic:

"The callers relayed their views on President Obama as a foreign-born Muslim. Most of them justified their views on Obama being foreign as a 'gut-feeling,' some used the web or e-mails as part of their support. Some just want the document available for review from the public.

"As for viewing the President as a Muslim, anti-Muslim feelings are running high with the Ground Zero mosque. People's feelings are hurt by the President's apparent acceptance of the mosque and feel its due to his father's religion and his up bringing as a child. Others think the president is not a true religious person, only using Christianity to gain votes in 2008."

The poll on KBOI's website asked "Do you think President Obama is:"

A foreign born Muslim -- 55 percent

A foreign born Christian -- 5 percent

An American born Muslim -- 5 percent

An American born Christian -- 17 percent

A president with really big ears -- 19 percent

Results are as of 1:30 p.m.

I bet 60% of their listeners bought coins from Goldline

60 is also the average IQ of their listeners.

Funny...

even more amusing that your post is probably very close to the actual truth.

And these are the idiots

most motivated to vote in November. There will be a clear choice, teh crazy or the unfulfilled.

* Obama is a foreign-born Muslim!

. * Obama is a foreign-born Muslim!

* Obama is a foreign-born Muslim!

* Obama is a foreign-born Muslim!

* Obama is a foreign-born Muslim!

* Obama is a foreign-born Muslim!

What does it take for you knot heads to finally get it through your sheeple heads?
* Obama is a foreign-born Muslim!

He endorses a Victory mosque at the 9-11 sight.

He is destroying our nation.

Muslims are instructed to kill infidels. You all are infidels unless you are Muslim.

Obama is doing his best to see that our country becomes a third world country.

* Obama is a foreign-born Muslim!

* Obama is a foreign-born Muslim!

Obama is not a Christian. The definition of a Christian is to be Christ like and a follower of Jesus.

He denies the birth Jesus for the traditional Christmas celebration at the Whitehouse. Christians are not allowed to pray in front of the White house.

Ramadan is celebrated in the White house and he prays with them.

Muslims pray in the streets of NYC every Friday.

What more do you need to see to know * Obama is a foreign-born Muslim!

Repeating a falsehood again and again doesn't make it true

Honestly, with all the problems facing this country shouldn't we spend our energy on something else besides this ridiculous fabrication?

A president with really big ears -- 19 percent

A foreign born Muslim -- 55 percent

A foreign born Christian -- 5 percent

An American born Muslim -- 5 percent

An American born Christian -- 17 percent

A president with really big ears -- 19 percent
A president with really big ears -- 19 percent
A president with really big ears -- 19 percent
A president with really big ears -- 19 percent
A president with really big ears -- 19 percent
A president with really big ears -- 19 percent

How many ways is it possible

How many ways is it possible for this post to be incorrect? Let's see...

He was born in Hawaii. Last time I checked, Hawaii is not a foreign nation.

He supports the rights of those who might build the Mosque, which is reasonable considering personal property rights and religious freedoms that are the current law of the land. He has never said he wants it there, or that it's even a good idea.

Are you suggesting that in America we tear up the current laws that protect us all in regards to property and religious freedom? Are you a fascist?

And best of all, you don't fit your own definition of a Christian. Christ didn't whine like you, even when he was on the cross.

Afraid of verifiable truth?

.

You mentioned Christ on the cross. Why was He on the cross. Do you even know without trying to be funny or clever? Bet you don't know.

You have prove, once again,

you are afraid of the truth.
How sad and pathetic your existence must be to propogate and believe such absurdities.

Wow. Just wow

You need to stop lunching with Philip Berg. Your post is false on so many levels it is amazing to me. You don't even try to sound educated, and provide no sources for your comment. Wow.

Thank you.

Thank you for confirming, beyond all shadow of a doubt, that you are, in fact, a ridiculous person. Thanks for making sure that nobody takes you seriously. Thanks for removing all credibility from anything you have ever said. Thank you for truly and unequivocally revealing yourself as a nutcase.
Seek help, Rancher. Put down the AM radio and walk away, no one gets hurt.

So nice of you to declare yourself

Responding to Idahomegrown,

So nice of you to declare yourself a liberal socialist by showing the liberal socialist identification card of name-calling and dumb personal attacks.
Have a blessed Sunday

Idahomegrown spoke the truth.

And engaged in no personal attacks by providing an accurate description of your behavior and opinions.

Why is this tool still allowed to post???

Well I guess he is relevant as one of the 60% of uneducated, uninformed KBOI listeners

Everyone is allowed a point of view.

Everyone is allowed a point of view. Idahomegrown has her's no matter how much she breaks the rules.

Nobody cares about the rules unless you are a conservative. Then they will delete your comment or kick you off.

Yet...

...you keep returning.

Time after time.

Apparently you, Rancher, are allowed to break the rules and are then allowed to come back and break the rules again. Ad infinitum.

Why?

What do you have on whom?

Which actually

identifies him as 60% of their listeners.

YOU ARE SHARP AND I WAS SLOW HAAAHAHAAHA

Excellent, GM!

Uh there is plenty of fiction on the NYT Best Sellers list. David Limbaugh is hardly a resource to use for facts. His book only appeals to right wing extremists who want to be told their backwards ideas are true. Those looking for the truth won't find it in anything David Limbaugh writes.

Can you handle some veriffiable truth?

This is why I hate talk radio

Everyone in the media -- including the blowhards on talk radio -- have a responsibility to this nation and its citizens to correct obvious and blatant falsehoods. Instead, some perpetuate it by holding out the "possibility" that there is that "chance" that Obama could be a Muslim, could be foreign-born. Even though both these claims are demonstrably and unquestionably false, some of the more irresponsible media continue to perpetuate it. The dumbed-down electorate is due in part to talk radio and the 24-hour news networks who have to be first and who have to be the most sensational. I hate what's happened to so-called journalism.

Restore Top 40 to AM radio NOW!!!!!!

"Say a prayer for the pretender..."-Jackson Browne

An online poll is not scientifically valid.

This is not news. Dan you can do better than this. There is real political news in Idaho. Your first sentence cannot be proven:
"Sixty percent of listeners who responded to an online survey..."

The poll was online, not a call-in poll to a radio show. I don't listen to KBOI talk-shows, but I do look at their website for local news sometimes. Hence I could answer the poll and never listen to a word of any of their talk show.

It is a reach, but it is hardly newsworthy. If you had attended the fair this past week and asked people that question it would have been more interesting. Especially if it was only a small part of a larger opinion piece about what effect such a viewpoint may have on current political discourse.

You are correct

The findings of this so-called research only apply to the 716 respondents. And I have to wonder how many "respondents" participated in the survey more than once.

Huh?

Come on, Dan....

Is Obama a Muslim?

I think the correct reply in this country should be "I don't care". Muslim, Jew, Protestant, Catholic, LDS...who gives a crap and why should it matter? Members of all the above listed groups have given and are giving blood and lives in service to this nation. Get over it.

On-Line Poll

In a recent on-line poll of KBOI Talk Radio listeners, it was revealed that:
- 97.5% of the listeners were Bigots, Morons, Racist, Neo-Nazis, Haters
- 76.6% of the listeners were uneducated
- 69.2% of the listeners were a danger to themselves and others
- 89.3% of the listeners could not understand the Constitution of the United States or the Bill of Rights, they said it needed more picture
- 89.9% have never served in our military
- 67.4% have had or will soon have their photo posted on the Ada County Sheriffs web site
- 100% are a danger to this country, because of their extremism, either to the Right (the majority of listeners) or to the Left

I remember when KBOI was a well respected radio station. Outside of attending sporting events, it was the primary source of Boise State sports. Oh, how far the station has fallen.

I remember when KBOI was in STEREO and played MUSIC

Also that people in California loved getting them at night even more than locals here loved getting KGO.

I can't believe that the media continue to make this an issue

You can blame the blowhards all you want, but the fact that the "mainstream" media continue to cover this story keeps the folly alive.

Barry B.H. Sartoro was born

Barry B.H. Sartoro was born Muslim in Kenya, Africa. His entire history is a lie. His name Barack Huisein obama is a actually Barry B.H. Sartoro, he was born in Kenya, Africa. It is why he made it against the law to even inquire to Hawaii for his birth certificate.

Stay tuned children he is about to be exposed big time in the near future. I cannot wait to see your excuses. We just hope it is done before he completely bankrupts our nation. And yes he does have huge ears. Too bad he does not use them to listen to the American public?

You believe that genetically modified milk cows are kept...

in the back at Albertson's too. One each for Skim, 1%, 2% and Whole (homogenized).

One of my grandfathers raised cattle and the other ran a dairy. You are bucking for a Section 8 and you are too old to serve. Why qualify then?

"Say a prayer for the pretender..."-Jackson Browne

Geez you are so blind it is humorous

Obama made it against the law to inquire about his birth certificate? You have no concept of the truth. Obama made no such law and you have no proof he did. You also have no proof that he was born "Barry B.H. Sartoro". Since that is not true either. He is also not bankrupting our nation. You cannot provide proof of that either. You are a Philip Berg wanna be. Philip Berg cannot prove anything either, which is why it is interesting that you hang on his every word. I noticed you decided to go through here and call everyone names that you disagree with. Is that part of the Glenn Beck "Get closer to God" plan?

I guess now that you aren't allowed to post on the main forum you're stuck here spouting your garbage.

I refuse to exchange insults with you.

I refuse to exchange insults with you.

BHO is in fact trying to bankrupt this nation and doing a good job at it. It was ABC news that first announced that they were about to pass law making it illegal to request obama's birth certificate for Hawaii. Later it was reported that it is in fact a law. Check it out yourself. Oh yes you are the one who is afraid of facts and verification. Sorry I forgot.

Insulting me does not change the facts!

Why can’t you reply with out insulting me and breaking all the rules?

Because you do not care about the 'rules'.

We already addressed this type of dilemma in our early youth.

Repeated the stereotyes cannot improve the situation as adults.

"Say a prayer for the pretender..."-Jackson Browne

Facts, Facts and more facts

Is the truth so hard for you to come by? Pres Obama did not make it illegal to request his birth certificate. The Hawaii Health department initiated the bill and the Governor signed it into law. That is Republican Governor Lingle. The bill does not make it illegal to ask for his birth certificate, it makes it so that the Health department can ignore the repeated requests. The law itself covers all agencies, not just the health department. The Hawaii Health department released his birth certificate already. They were being overwhelmed by continued requests over and over again. Responding to these requests obviously takes time and taxpayer money. How you decided that Obama passed a state law in Hawaii is beyond me. There are your facts.

I will be contacting Syringa Networks about their sponsorship

of such an asinine poll. But honestly, Mr. Popkey, do you really think an unscientific online poll asking such profound questions as the size of the president's ears is worth reporting? Why are you participating in the dumbing of America?

Online Poll

Wow--if I were KBOI I'd be embarrassed about the intelligence( or lack thereof!) of their listening audience.....and would be making every attempt to help educate them instead of contributing to their ignorance. Get rid of the conservative talk show hosts!!! They're poison to the ignorant members of this population!!!

What a bunch of rediculous

What a bunch of rediculous idiots. KBOI is about as stupid as they are.

The man is the President of the United States. Until such time as someone else is elected.

The people that have this kind of crap to encourage are idiots.

Funny

You call others stupid and idiots when you're the stupid idiot who can't spell "ridiculous"? I think I'd move out of the glass house before throwing stones.

As for the name calling, I guess you're one of those tolerant progressives we hear so much about - the hypocrites who are only tolerant of those who agree with them.

CherokeeGuy, You nailed

CherokeeGuy, You nailed these old spinster broads. They are so full of hate they praise each others insults to others. Then they think they are clever when they dog pile on folks like you or myself. They are living proof that liberalism socialists are a mental disorder. After all their vulgar attacks they cry foul when you give it back. A pathetic bunch for sure.

Thanks for confirming

your misogynist leanings.
