Almost half of Iowa Republicans don’t think the president was born in the United States and nearly a third aren’t sure if Barack Obama was born here, according to a new poll, Politico reports.

A startling 48 percent of Iowa responded to the to the automated survey by Democratic firm Public Policy Polling saying they don’t believe the president is a citizen by birth, and another r 26 percent said they weren’t sure whether or not he was born n America.

The same poll also showed Mitt Romney would have trouble in Iowa with his state-run “Romneycare” plan, a state-level bill mandating residents have health insurance. Some 63 percent said they could not vote for someone who approved such a mandate.

Trump’s recent attacks on Obama’s birthplace seems to have struck a chord in Iowa, however.

In Iowa, Trump comes in third with 14 percent of the vote, just two points behind Romney with 16 percent. Mike Huckabee is currently leading in the state, with 27 percent support from Iowa Republicans, Politico said.
