Deficit of Trust: Most Voters Don’t Believe President’s Assertions About Economy
….The president in the speech declared that his administration has cut taxes for 95% of Americans. He even chided Republicans for not applauding on that point. However, just 21% of voters nationwide believe that taxes have been cut for 95% of Americans. Most (53%) say it has not happened, and 26% are not sure. Other polling shows that nearly half the nation’s voters expect their own taxes to go up during the Obama years.
The president also asserted that “after two years of recession, the economy is growing again.” Just 35% of voters believe that statement is true, while 50% say it is false.
Obama claimed that steps taken by his team are responsible for putting two million people to work “who would otherwise be unemployed.” Just 27% of voters say that statement is true. Fifty-one percent (51%) say it’s false.
As I pointed out in that last post. Most people hear the lies – and recognize them for what they are. These are numbers that indicate that Obama and the Democrats are in mortal danger, politically-speaking. This is pretty close to as bad as it can get.
Plouffles won’t save them.
