CNN Poll: 53% Believe Obama Is Not Honest

From a white-knuckled CNN:

President’s marks as manager take hit in new CNN/ORC poll

November 24, 2013

Washington (CNN) – Only four out of 10 Americans believe President Barack Obama can manage the federal government effectively, according to a new national poll.

And a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning also indicates that 53% of Americans now believe that Obama is not honest and trustworthy, the first time that a clear majority in CNN polling has felt that way.

Obama has been a liar all of his life. (He even lied in his autobiography.) How come now one even noticed during his last campaign, when he lied about Romney non-stop?

According to the survey, conducted last Monday through Wednesday, 40% say the President can manage the government effectively. That 40% figure is down 12 percentage points from June and is the worst score Obama received among the nine personal characteristics tested in the new poll…

Romney ran on competence. How come he didn’t win?

Obama’s woes are not limited to honesty and his managerial skills. Fifty-six percent say he is not a person they admire, and an equal number say he does not agree with them on important issues.

Whoa Nelly! We used to no one agreeing with Obama on the issues. But we thought he was supposed to be likeable, for some odd reason.

Fifty-six percent also say he does not inspire confidence, and 53% don’t view him as a strong and decisive leader. All of those figures are all-time records for Obama in CNN polling.

Where is Wolf Blitzer? Shouldn’t he be reporting on this breathlessly?

There is a silver lining in the poll for the President: He’s still seen as someone who cares about ordinary Americans, six in 10 say he has a vision for the country’s future, and seven in 10 say he is likable–his best attribute of the nine items tested in this poll. But the numbers are down for both admiration and likeability…

This is, of course, preposterous. If ordinary people are the middle class, Obama cares nothing for them. He is destroying the middle class.

But even if this were true, what good does it do to care if you are incompetent? And you can’t accomplish what you want to accomplish. (Which, by the way, is the least of Obama’s problems.)
