Poll: 60 Percent of Americans Think Obama Lies on Important Issues
Townhall.com ^ | April 17, 2014 | Katie Pavlich

According to new polling released by Fox News, the vast majority of the country believes President Obama lies on important issues.

About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.”


It isn't just Obama's typical foes who think he's less than honest, Democrats and single women aren't too confident in his truth telling abilities either.

The number of voters saying Obama lies “most of the time” includes 13 percent of Democrats. It also includes 12 percent of blacks, 16 percent of liberals, 31 percent of unmarried women and 34 percent of those under age 30 -- all key Obama constituencies.


For President Obama, these numbers don't matter much, but they do matter for Democrats up for election this year who have been avid supporters of Obama's policies. Democratic support for Obamacare in particular continues to weigh on the minds of voters, especially voters who have lost the healthcare plans they were promised they could keep.

If the trend keeps rolling, the next Democratic candidate will have to run strongly against Obama - and that’ll be very hard for Biden or Hillary.

I’m guessing someone distant like Cory Booker or Deval Patrick will run...and lose.

It would appear that 40% of the population is about as stupid as Joe Biden then?

And Biden is the baseline of stupidity....from which all stupid just be judged.

I think the temptation to install another black president where all criticism can be tagged as racist will be overwhelming.

Sometimes I wonder if Obama and other liberals, are so blinded by their liberal theology, that lies just come so easily to them, because of their liberalism? They have these utopian dreams of a society with healthcare for all, green energy for all, prosperity, same sex marriage, religion marginalized, conservatives marginalized, etc. Somehow everything just happens, without cost, without painful adjustments, without consequences, without tough choices being made.

And tied in with that, liberals can feel that lying is justified, not unlike the Muslim theology which allows Muslims to lie when in pursuit of Muslim goals.

Good old Joe.

Stand Up Chuck.

You can’t go in a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.

I still can’t get over the 2012 debate with Biden and Paul Ryan. Biden was smiling and gesturing inappropriately, completely absurd. Said some absurd things. Yet the media never said anything. Can you imagine a Republican seemingly not all there, being treated to deferentially by the media?

So 85% of the people seem to recognize that he’s a liar, but with all of the welfare-dependents and LIVs, he seems to continue to have plenty of support.

It is amazing.

It’s the part of the electorate that will continue to pull the lever for proven liars, so long as they continue to hand out Free Stuff. THAT’S the problem!

Those are probably the ones on Medicaid. They could care less, since they don’t have to pay anyway

Absolutely. You can’t rule that possibility out and make no mistake those two perspective presidential candidates are in the Obama wing of the party. They’re not about to step aside and let the Clintonistas rule the Democratic Party and have control over the big money donors. This upcoming election is more than Democrats vs Republicans. It’s also about the Clintons vs the Obamas and for the control of the Democratic Party.

Can’t agree.

Obama lies about every, single thing 100% of the time.

Americans are very far from smart.

It doesn’t even have to be important issues on which he lies. He’s a sociopath and a serial LIAR. I can only guess that would be his defense at a trial. Mental deficiency

Doesn’t matter. Those same people polled will claim you are a racist for calling him a liar. Joe Wilson deserves a big-ass apology but he ain’t gonna get one.

The other 40% don’t care a bit, so long as they get their SNAP, free phones, 1040EZ ‘refund’ and all.

That 40% includes people who think Obama lies only about unimportant issues, people who think Obama’s aids lie to Obama and that Obama is just too darned good and trusting, people who believe Obama is The One and that any sound uttered out of any of his orifices is by definition the truth, people who still think Bush is president (explaining everything bad since 2008), people who think Justin Beiber or some other celebrity is president, and people who are in persistent vegetative states.

Heh.

I think Steyn summed it up nicely when he said that the headline that should have been used was “87% of Americans believe Obama is a liar.”

If I got that number right, it may have been 81%.
