Obama the Muslim

Lots of good stuff I should be writing about today.  But I’m trying to be a good boy and work on the 2012 NES data for my research.  But I just came across the variable on Obama’s religion and couldn’t resist posting this crosstab:

Those figures are column percentages– i.e., 29% of Republicans apparently believe that Obama is a Muslim.  And this is a plurality, easily beating the 23% who respond that he’s a Christian.  Heck, even 11% of Democrats have been persuaded of this.  I’m really going to enjoy playing with this as a dependent variable, but alas, back to parenthood now.
