    USA TODAY poll: Obama mishandled Bergdahl exchange

    This new poll from USA Today/Pew Research not only show more people think Obama mishandled the Bergdahl deal, but shows that the left, especially those who call themselves "Liberals" are still seemingly convinced that Obama can do no wrong. While the poll shows over-all that 64% of Americans (67% of Independents) think that Obama should be required to inform Congress before making a decision like this, by a 2 to 1 margin liberals think exactly the opposite, with only 33% of them believing Obama should have to inform congress.




    USA TODAY poll: Obama mishandled Bergdahl exchange

    WASHINGTON — Public opposition to the exchange of five Taliban prisoners for captive Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has less to do with Bergdahl himself and more with how President Obama handled the transfer, according to a new USA TODAY/Pew Research Center poll.

    The poll shows 43% of Americans say it was wrong for Obama to make the deal, compared with 34% who say it was the right thing to do.

    Thirty percent of those surveyed have a strong opinion of Bergdahl, whose decision to leave his post in 2009 and subsequent capture by the Taliban is under investigation by the Army. Of those, half say they were sympathetic, and half say they are angry with Bergdahl.

    The 128 veterans included in the poll are much more harsh in their assessment of the 28-year-old sergeant. Only 6% of veterans who responded say they sympathized with him, while 33% say they were angry. By 68%-16%, veterans say Obama made the wrong decision.

    People tend to side with those who share their political beliefs. News at 11.
