    I don't think this is the MOST scientific poll ever done.  We know, certainly, that a larger number of republican folks, with specific belief systems live in particular parts of the country, so a "random" polling in that area is more likely to come across those people.  From a research design standpoint, people are more likely to respond to a poll when they have a vested interest in the material and I can just hear "the birthers" taking this opportunity to voice their opinion and people who think this is a ridiculous movement hanging up on the pollster.  I can't imagine that 2400 is a representative sample of the (probably) 250 million American adults, but I'm not really sure how to calculate that...anyone?
