  • Because they're easily swayed by what Talking Heads in the mass media say because they're angry at the fact that a man of African descent could be elected to such a high public office.

  • Because people want something to complain about him. He wasn't born in the US but he was born on a US military base which still makes him a naturalized citizen.

  • His name is muslim I believe, so people connect it with that. Which is silly to base it on that. As well he was born outside and lived outside of the US.
