This evening, CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked about Barack Obama, "why is it that there are still so many people, more than one in 10 in recent polling, who still believe he's a Muslim?"
CNN's Gary Tuchman went looking for a place where ignorance lives. He found what he was looking for in Copperhill, Tennessee. He interviewed many residents who believed Obama is a Muslim, including the Mayor of Copperhill.
Here's one of the conversations:
GARY TUCHMAN, CNN NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT: What concerns you about Barack Obama?
TN FEMALE: The safety of our country if Obama gets in. I do -- he is a Muslim, and I'm very concerned about that.TUCHMAN: The fact is, he says he's not a Muslim. He says he's a Christian.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes, I know what he says. (LAUGHS)
Tuchman said of the roughly 2 dozen people he talked to, all but one believe Obama is a Muslim. Shoot, even my barber from Woodbury thinks Obama is a Muslim.
