ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:

What Happens If Ted Cruz Is Brought Down by a 'Birther' Catastrophe? (Ed Kilgore, 1/12/16, New York)

Here's the crucial finding:

Only 32% of Iowa Republicans think someone born in another country should be allowed to serve as President, to 47% who think such a person shouldn't be allowed to serve as President. Among that segment of the Republican electorate who don't think someone foreign born should be able to be President, Trump is crushing Cruz 40/14.

So is the "Cruz birther" issue already baked into the numbers? Not exactly.

Despite all the attention to this issue in the last week, still only 46% of Iowa Republicans are aware that Cruz was not born in the United States. In fact, there  are more GOP voters in the state who think Cruz (34%) was born in the United States than think Barack Obama (28%) was. 

How can anyone not enjoy politics?
