If you hadn't noticed, Republicans are very, very skeptical about President Obama. And that's putting it mildly. In fact, just about half of them -- 48 percent -- believe he doesn't love America.

That's according to a new poll conducted by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm. PPP found that only 27 percent of self-identified Republican voters do believe Obama loves America. 25 percent weren't sure.

This isn't too different from the results of similar polling; back in July, a different survey found that only 42 percent of Republicans believe the president's even a citizen.
