A University of Texas poll released earlier this week reports that 23% of Texans are convinced that Barack Obama is a Muslim. These numbers are unusual because most national polls show that just 5% to 10% of American voters still believe Obama is a Muslim-- less than half the number of Texans who buy into the debunked theory. The poll also shows McCain with a comfortable +10% lead in the state.
