Lindsey Graham denounces GOP base voters for 'visceral...almost irrational' dislike of Obama

Madness has gripped a segment of the Republican Party that embraces a war on its own voters as unworthy.  Instead of blaming himself for a presidential campaign mired at the one percent level of support, failing to make a ripple even in his home state of South Carolina, Senator Lindsey Graham blames the GOP voters who are too driven by irrational, probably racist beliefs. Caitlin Yilek of The Hill reports:

Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says GOP front-runner Donald Trump is doing so well in the polls because nearly half of Republican primary voters think President Obama is a Kenyan-born Muslim. 

“Well there’s about 40 percent of the Republican primary voter who believes that Obama was born in Kenya and is a Muslim,” Graham told Boston Herald Radio on Friday, according to BuzzFeed News

“There’s just a dislike for President Obama that is visceral. It’s almost irrational,” Graham added.
