Some may have been shocked at Rudy Giuliani's suggestion that President Obama doesn't love America, but it seems many in the GOP agree with him. A Huffington Post/YouGov poll finds that just 11% of Republicans believe the president loves his country, Politico reports. Some 85% of Democrats agree with that Republican minority, as do 42% of independents. Some 38% of independents, however, say the president doesn't love America, along with 69% of Republicans.

Overall, 47% of Americans—a plurality—believe the president loves the US, while 35% don't, YouGov reports. Another recent poll, by Rasmussen, finds that 51% disagree with Giuliani's comments, while 35% agree. That poll found that 62% of Republicans are on Giuliani's side.
