Poll Indicates Public Is Becoming More Perceptive Of Obama Deception

Poll Indicates Public Is Becoming More Perceptive Of Obama Deception

A new poll conducted by The Hill finds that Americans feel the Nation’s economic condition is destined to worsen and that mainstream media is overly sympathetic to President Barack Obama.

According to the poll, 46 percent of respondents felt that American news media is “excessively sympathetic to the President.” Only 28 percent believed that the President is unjustly ridiculed by the press, and a paltry 17 percent still believe in unbiased media coverage of the Presidential Administration.

It has been noted in recent weeks, as a string of White House press pool members surfaced with reports of the Administration’s efforts to work the press, that top Obama officials are masters of manipulating media coverage. According to some of the pool members, the Administration encourages coverage of certain topics more than others and retaliates when reporters fall out of lockstep with the Obama-approved message.

Though the White House has drastically lessened the amount of doomsday rhetoric that it is using to describe the sequestration cuts, 48 percent of respondents to the poll recognized exaggeration on the part of the President and his Administration. Thirty-one percent said the cuts were as bad as the President warned.

The majority view that the President overhyped sequestration is backed up by recent reports indicating that the Administration could have made less-public efforts to reduce spending than ending White House tours and by tips from heads of some Federal programs indicating the Administration wants Americans to “feel the pain” of the cuts.

Looking at the poll results along party lines, 67 percent of Republicans feel like the economy is getting worse, compared to just 26 percent of Democrats. Fifty-five percent of the time, independents said that the economy was worsening. That may be a good sign for Republican candidates preaching a message of fiscal conservatism in upcoming elections.

    ” Public Is Becoming More Perceptive Of Obama Deception” The public would definitely be more aware of Obama’s unending deceptions if the &%$#^%#* MEDIA would do its job rather than constantly sucking up to him.

      Goes to show whichever hopelessly corrupt party is in power, the zombies who voted for them will be blind to any and all disaster coming their way. It also shows that probably 5% of the country knows what the Federal Reserve is and how they, at the behest of their owners, the Rothschilds, are destroying America through bankruptcy.

    • Kay

      The media is bought and paid for by the Obama regime, so its much more than just a cheap, lying suck-up machine. They are actually misinforming and outright lying to the American people and should be held accountable for their role as the propaganda machine for Obama. They are even worse than the state owned medias of Russia, North Korea, China, Venezuela and other communist countries throughout the world. Even Russia’s Pravda said that Obama’s proven ineligibility is the biggest crime since Watergate and the media was silent. The world is laughing at these liberal progressive liars and just waiting for the day the American people put them out of business. The good news is that their ratings are way down, so hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for the worthless liars to be canned for good.

    • STEVE E.

      It is the public’s duty to be smart enough not to believe the &%$#^%#* MEDIA.

      • eddie47d

        Too funny Steve ! Inforwars,Breitbart and even PLD is the media too and they don’t get it right all the time either. You seem to buy your own special brand of Kool Aid! Chug Away!

  • Warrior

    Just think how much fun one can have playing the part of a “developer” without having ANY SKIN in the game.

  • eddie47d

    The Hill is a local publication in the Washington DC area and focuses on those in Congress. It has 21,000 subscribers and almost all with political or business affiliations which makes a poll from them rather narrowly focused. Few “Americans” even know about this publication. So why would a 67% from Republicans be a shocker especially since Republicans in Congress have a more unfavorable rating than Democrats in Congress?

    • JeffH

      eddie, just what does anything you’ve just posted have to do with this article…”The Hill’s” Poll which “Indicates Public Is Becoming More Perceptive Of Obama Deception”?

      Answer…NOTHING! This ain’t about congress, Democrats or Republicans…it’s about Americans slowly starting to realize that Obama actually is a deceptive rat…and a liar.

      As usual, your thin skin forces you to go off in another direction because you felt it necessary to defend your fellow thin skinned messiah POTUS.

      PS…I’ve ordered all of the necessary parts to build me another custom AR-15 modern hunting rifle. Here’s a picture of my old one a traded away in August in case you’re interested.

    • eddie47d

      Typical Jeff H ignore the facts and go in for the kill anyway!

      • JeffH

        Just what facts in your comment “relating to this article” did I ignore?

        Point them out…which you cannot do…point them out.

        Answer: None…because none of what you posted in your comment was remotely close to the contents of the article.

    Been feeling the pain since 2007….

  • George Chatraw

    “That may be a good sign for Republican candidates preaching a message of fiscal conservatism in upcoming elections.”… Upcoming elections? We won’t have any more elections, just more of the lies, scams and fraud that have illegally placed this man in office with the help of the crooks and criminals in the Democratic party plus the lies and deceptions broadcast by the media.

    • Wil

      Hate to say it, but I don’t think we have actually ‘elected’ anyone in years. We no longer have a two-party system. Instead, we have a fascist system using two names and putting on a puppet show for the masses.

  • ibcamn

    Did americans finally wake up yet??!are they seeing through all his lies yet??!no…not yet….then dont bother me!i just can’t believe the American people are this blind!it’s astonishing!

    • STEVE E.

      Those polls still show that the stupid people still outnumber the intelligent people.

  • Jana

    Its about time people are waking up and seeing the love affair between the main stream media and Obama. Obama can do nothing wrong as far as they are concerned. He lies and they lie right along with him or for him with a big smile on their face.

    When Obama starts black balling certain news groups like he has Fox News you know he thinks he is oh so powerful.

    On the radio the other day there were newsmen who were talking and saying they were very wiling to go after the stories that were presenting themselves from Obama to whomever, but their publishers would not publish them. So it may not be the all of the reporters themselves, it sounds like it is the organizations for whom they work. This is why Obama feels he can discriminate against any new agency he chooses and get away with it, and so far he pretty much has gotten away with it.

    The MSM overly sympathetic to Obama? How understated. Most have been his fawning,slobbering lapdogs for the past 6 years.

  • s c

    Imagine that. We have a third-rate prez who’s been scamming the nation for over 4 years. We have a ho bag media that doesn’t know the difference between a whore and a pimp. Imagine that. Kongress amounts to a herd of career criminals, and only now are the people beginning to connect Obummer with Kongress. Imagine that. What’s next?
    Will people get tired of being hosed, raped, abused and robbed of their wealth?
    Like they say, folks, you get what you didn’t vote AGAINST.

  • John

    Lets go back in time. The Democratic National Convention, lady being interviewed. Reporter: Who are you voting for ? Lady: Obama. Reporter: Why ? Lady: Obama gonna pay for my house, Obama gonna pay for my car, etc … Reality check 101. barry sotero has never taken responsibility for anything, he was brought up by his mother to believe two things. 1. When the going gets tough; go to the welfare office or student aid and pick up a check. 2. Welfare is a career choice. He has spent his entire life blowing hot air and signing the back of a gov’t check. Do not cry if he is biting the nipple, you (Sheeple that voted for him) put him back on the welfare tit.

  • Michael Shreve

    The probability that the voting public will EVER hold Obama accountable is slim, the probability that the media will is nil.

      M. Shreve, you nailed it.

    I’m 56 and talked with 2 of my cousins today whom I have not seen for 20 years+. Females, and 3 of their brothers work for the gov. in 1 way or another. Happy with life and the direction the country is taking. Of course I did not express my beliefs. Peace in the family of course. They are 5 to 10 years older than me, so I wondered what they see that I don’t. Farm subsidies and gov. paychecks was the answer. I made 1 comment slightly slamming our state of affairs, they spunked up like a politician saying this will be the most transparent administration blah, blah. I have no faith in supposedly smart people realizing wtf is going on. Not that I’m calling libs smart of course.

    • JeffH

      Mike in NE, I hear ya where families and good friends are involved. 2 years ago I was visiting my 85 y/o dad about and got into a little political discussion about Obamacare. I realize that my dad worked hard for everything he’s got and is comfortable in his retirement. He’s also a lifelong democrat and been politically educated by the MSM, newspapers and local news. In short, he believes that the government has every right to force employers, no matter what size they are, to provide healthcare to their employees.

      Needless to say, after trying to reason with him…I no longer discuss politics with him.

  • http://na Mike in NE

    I just think the t.v. media propaganda is working extremely well with those who choose that type of knowledge, not to mention the poor, clueless younger people who are programmed beyond belief. Voting could be rigged or not, the brainwash has been very effective. Polls mean nothing to me, time is on their side. The good thing is, I am not afraid to die defending oppressive gov.

  • ex-millman

    Obamma & his wife are always on talk shows & rhey think that the American public loves them, nothing could be further from the truth, they SUCK. O’s white house wants to disrupt the way we think & the way we do things. O should be reading the constitution & getting a better understanding of what he swore to uphold but all that do nothing Prez wants to do is put out hate & deceipt or just go play golf.

  • gray beard

    Obama wants to start a war between the rich and the poor. He keeps it up it will come and bite you in the ass. I was brough up not to lie that way you don’t have to rember what you said.I wonder how Obama sleeps at night trying to remeber what he said that day. He is the worst President I have seen
