Tom Jensen of Public Policy Polling reported on Twitter today that a new poll his firm conducted finds that only 32% of Virginia Republicans think Obama was born in the US, while 41% think he was not and 27% are not sure. These numbers are even worse than the national results from the Daily Kos/Research 2000 poll released on Friday, which found that 28% of Republicans think Obama is not a citizen and 30% are not sure.

Here is a bar chart that combines results from the two polls to compare Virginia Republicans with Republicans and the public nationally (click it for a larger version):

Pretty depressing stuff.
