Not one reports feeling sad or burdened; only 3 percent say they feel lonely.

The dustup between mogul Donald Trump and New York Times
editorial page columnist Gail Collins over whether or not President
Barack Obama has a valid birth certificate or is a U.S. citizen
makes for wonderful political theatrics. Would-be 2012 Republican
presidential candidates, including The Donald himself, must be
licking their chops over the potential fodder this nagging
"birther" debate may represent during their campaigns.
