Yeah but when you throw in this part with it.....then those numbers get a little worse.
Fox poll: 61% thinks Obama lies on important matters....
About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.
Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.”
Only among his strongest constituencies does Obama’s reputation for honesty remain strong — or at least relatively so:
The number of voters saying Obama lies “most of the time” includes 13 percent of Democrats. It also includes 12 percent of blacks, 16 percent of liberals, 31 percent of unmarried women and 34 percent of those under age 30 — all key Obama constituencies.
Yet some of those groups are also among those most likely to say Obama “never” lies to the country on important matters: blacks (37 percent), Democrats (31 percent), liberals (28 percent) and women (19 percent).
Yes, those are not exactly massive statements of confidence in Obama’s honesty. The problem for Obama is that even when he pursued unpopular policy, public perception of his intelligence and honesty helped keep his approval ratings from utterly tanking. His central conceit — that he was not just another politician — is what allowed him to endure the disastrous 2010 cycle and survive the 2012 re-election. The explosion of the “you can keep your plan” lie, combined with the more recent and more flagrant “women only earn 77 cents to men’s dollar” lie, has done the predictable damage to his reputation.
Even with that, though, Obama’s approval rating actually rebounded slightly in this series. It’s back to 42/51 from 38/54 six weeks ago in this series, which was an all-time low. Believe it or not, 42/51 is actually Obama’s best approval rating in this series for 2014 — a tie on approval, and the lowest disapproval of the year.....snip~

The fact remains the GOP constantly screws up by trying to push social conservatism. They claim the economy is the most important issue (which I think is too), yet they continue to focus on social conservatism.
The words in the OP are not mine, for the 3rd time. You don't like them? Call WaPo or ABC. You having a childish fit at me because you don't like their poll results and their words is a waste of my time reading.
Add something to the thread or kindly find someone else to be pissed at.
Heya TNE.....do you think the Democrats can get away from Chewing all that cud? What about their followers?
In spite of the media's "winning streak" cheerleading, many elected Democrats are heeding party pollsters' advice not to campaign on the unpopular law. The Huffington Post notes that many Senate Democratic candidates' websites omit any mention of the law, while The Hill reports that to many Democrats, "Obamacare is a four letter word:"
In a review of battleground races, The Hill found that out of 50 Democratic candidates with active campaign websites, only 11 mention the healthcare law by name, either as "ObamaCare," "Affordable Care Act," or "ACA." Fourteen more mention the law, but not its name, and half the candidates omit it entirely from their websites. President Obama has trumpeted that more than 8 million people have enrolled in ACA-related plans. Meanwhile, congressional Democrats have been more cautious, focusing on jobs and the economy......snip~
How did you want that flavored again? Juicy Fruit or Blueberry Bubble Yum?
Before Republican voters start spiking the football, general opinion polls are useful but not the end all be all. There's still elections where the generic Republican actually is a person. There are some tight races in Arkansas, Louisiana, Kentucky, Virginia etc.
