Believe it or not, this is not a joke.

The Washington Post reports on a new Pew Research Center survey.

The number of Americans who believe — wrongly — that President Obama is a Muslim has increased significantly since his inauguration and now account for nearly 20 percent of the nation’s population… The number of people who now correctly identify Obama as a Christian has dropped to 34 percent, down from nearly half when he took office.

Perhaps not surprisingly, right-wingers are the most likely to believe false information about the president’s faith.

More than a third of conservative Republicans now say Obama is a Muslim, nearly double the percentage saying so early last year.
