I live in SD and I am a candidate for the State House. I was out walking my district last month and spoke to a woman about the primary. She has a statue of the Virgin Mary in her front yard and was wearing several crosses around her neck. Here is our conversation:
Woman: "I don't know about that Obama guy."
Me: "I'm an Obama supporter, do you mind if I ask what you're unsure about."
Woman: "He's a muslim and there is a biblical prophecy that a muslim will take over our country and destroy the world."
Me: "You're aware he is not a Muslim."
Woman: "He can say anything he wants."
