Fox poll: Most think Obama lies to the nation
By Justin Sink
Roughly six in 10 voters believe President Obama occasionally lies to the nation about important matters, according to a Fox News poll released this week.
According to the survey, 37 percent of respondents believe the president lies "most of the time," while just under a quarter think Obama is deceitful "some of the time." Two out of every 10 voters say the president fibs "only now and then" and 15 percent say the president is always truthful.
Of those who say the president lies "most of the time," 13 percent identify as Democrats. Some 12 percent of blacks, 16 percent of liberals, 31 percent of married women, and a third of those under 30 years old say the president lies regularly.
That said, members of those key Obama demographics are more likely to say the president never lies 37 percent of blacks, three in 10 Democrats, 28 percent of liberals, and two in 10 women maintain the president is never untruthful.
The president's numbers come amid criticism from Republicans that he misled consumers with his pledge that they could keep their existing health care plans under ObamaCare. The president apologized for repeatedly insisting that was true in an interview with NBC last November.
"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," Obama said.
The Fox News poll also found that the president's job performance had rebounded to 42 percent approval from 40 percent the month prior. Approval of Obama was up six points with independents.
They confuse the word “important” with “ANY!”
If you like your “8 million” ObamaCare enrollees, you can keep your “8 million” ObamaCare enrollees.
I would take a PMSNBC poll and average the two. Lots of stupid people out there. Bet still a health amount, love zer0’s mom jeans covered rearend.
They confuse the word ‘occasionally’ with ‘always’.
Wow!! This means that 4 out of 10 voters are completely flatlined.
He’s a pathological liar.
Well if he only lies a little bit I guess that’s ok right?
He a shameless liar, as well. Gosh how much evidence would you need?
Race matters, agenda matters, socialism matters.
Yep. And she’s only a ‘little bit’ pregnant...
935 Days To Go!
or they are lying to themselves..
The truth isn’t in him, and the truth is not on his side.
The rest KNOW he does
I agree. He learned it at a young age as a way to fit in as well as a sort of survival to feed his narcissism. His payoff, early, was to be 'liked' and accepted. As with most young liberals-to-be, he learned early on that he was smarter than his likely idiotic mom and the rest of the goofballs he consorted with. In Kenya, he was likely treated as a superior because he was an American. The slick tongued sociopath learned how to manipulate weak minded people around him. Today, his lying is so well ingrained, that he doesn't even know when he's doing it (for the most part). He must 'look good' at all expense. Putin has an in-depth profile on this and will exploit it as best he can. However, he'd best not personally injure B-HO's ego, or it might backfire, terribly, at the world's expense - only up to the point where B-HO's own kids are threatened.
They THINK he lies?
What about the millions and millions of us who KNOW he lies every time he opens his lying mouth.
Four out every ten is the approximate hard-core vote ANY Democrat is assured of in any election.
Totally uncritical, unthinking as a genuflection, “because my folks taught me that”, and “that’s the way we ALWAYS did it”. Low-information voters that cannot or will not ever get out of their rut.
We do not need better choices of leaders in this country. We need a better class of voters. Thomas Jefferson saw the need for a well-informed electorate, but how do we bring that about?
Sound like the science is settled.
It’s a consensus.
Anyone who denies he’s a liar is the same as a Holocaust denier.
Anyone who denies he’s a liar needs to be removed from the public airwaves.
Anyone who denies he’s a liar needs to be imprisoned as dangerous.
