Poll Shows 81% of Voters Think Obama Shaves the Truth
Political spin is the coin of the realm in Washington, the universal habit of putting the best light on the darkest truth. But Barack Obama has set a new kind of record. An astounding number of Americans now believe that he is incapable of telling the truth.
A new Fox News poll provides proof that should shock every American regardless of party. The poll says that 37 percent think Obama lies “most of the time.” Another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Yet another 20 percent say he lies “now and then.” Only 15 percent said he never lies.
The poll was not a random selection of Americans across the board. It was a random selection of registered voters, committed citizens who have bothered to register to vote and are likely to show up at the polls in November.
The poll results will send shockwaves through the entire Democratic Party. Every single Democratic candidate is saddled with this burden. When their president is a serial liar, it is nearly impossible to defend him and stick up for his policies.
The stark truth is clear. The poll reveals a record of telling untruths that Obama has written over the last five years. Obama came into office on a wave of enthusiasm and high expectations. Now he is treading political water. No one believes him.
