Public Unsure Trump Was Born in United States

Today the Drudge Report (4/26/11) screams:

SHOCK POLL: ONLY 38% SAY OBAMA 'DEFINITELY' BORN IN USA

The all-caps headline links to a USA Today story that quotes that 38 percent figure, courtesy of a new Gallup poll.

For the record, the poll also asked respondents the same question about Donald Trump. Forty-three percent say they are definitely sure he was born in the United States.
