  1. Merge with Obama citizenship denial. Christopher (talk) 20:35, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
  2. There is a tremendous amount of overlap between the two. Regards, Cosmikdebris (talk) 20:51, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
  3. This should've been marked as a Duplicate, not for Deletion. That being said — do not delete, but do merge with Obama citizenship denial. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 20:54, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
    What's the point of duplicate article nomination if we already have a "Merge/redirect" option in afd? Christopher (talk) 21:00, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
    It's not just a local rule. On Wikis generally, there's a functional difference between (1) Discussing if there's overlapping content in two separate articles, fully or in part, neither of which are being considered for deletion, and (2) Arguing that the entirety of some article ought to be deleted from the site, with the ability to vote "Merge/redirect" meaning "Yes, we should delete the article, but certain content in it should perhaps appear elsewhere on the site".

  4. Just do the merge - David Gerard (talk) 09:47, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
  5. Per Christopher. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 03:58, 23 April 2017 (UTC)

  7. Merging's not going to be easy, but looks like the best thing to do here. Regards, Cosmikdebris (talk) 01:04, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
