SALT LAKE CITY -- A new poll shows many Utahns aren't sure if President Barack Obama is a native of Africa or the United States.
The Dan Jones poll done for KSL-TV and the Deseret News shows one-third of those questioned either do not believe or are not sure if Pres. Obama was born on U.S. soil.
However, two-thirds of those asked say they believe the president was born in Hawaii, as he claims and a birth certificate has proven.
The president's place of birth has been questioned by so-called "birthers" who believe he lied about his background and therefore is not qualified to be president.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says the birth certificate is online.
