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.
