Due to a latest CNN ballot and an article in Mashable that trumpets its findings, the phrase is out that 1 p.c of People consider President Barack Obama is Jewish.
After all, Obama just isn’t Jewish. He’s Protestant and has attended a number of completely different church buildings in Washington, D.C. since turning into president.
But the CNN ballot launched on Sunday discovered that solely 39 p.c of People know the president’s non secular denomination. In line with the survey, 29 p.c assume he’s Muslim, 4 p.c assume he’s Catholic, 2 p.c assume he’s Mormon and 1 p.c assume he’s Jewish.
The ballot’s 3-percent margin of error makes its discovering on Obama’s perceived Jewishness insignificant. However that didn’t cease the Web from reacting — typically humorously.
That is simply my grandmother; she thinks everybody well-known is secretly Jewish. https://t.co/XsEX1toTWN

Pill author Yair Rosenberg identified satirically that right-wing pundit Ann Coulter’s latest controversial feedback on the United States-Israel relationship don’t appear to be getting via to the American folks.
Even Atlantic columnist Jeffrey Goldberg, who famously known as Obama the “first Jewish president,” weighed in.
Maybe it’s not so stunning that some People might imagine Obama is Jewish. In spite of everything, the president has hosted seven White Home Passover seders, appointed two Jewish chiefs of employees and has a final title meaning “lightning” in Hebrew.
