How much do Americans trust President Obama? Not much, according to a Fox News poll.But then, to be fair, there are still people who think the Moon landing was faked, 9/11 was an inside job, Trade Center Building 7 was downed with explosives, and the Earth is flat.
Sixty-one percent of respondents in the poll released Thursday said Obama lies at least some of the time on important issues. An additional 20 percent said he lies every now and then.
Only 15 percent believe the president is completely truthful.
Predictably, Republicans were more likely to believe Obama is a liar, with 85 percent saying he lies some or most of the time. Thirty-one percent of Democrats said the president is always truthful.
What's interesting is that independents were slightly more likely to believe Obama lies at least some of the time — 63 percent, compared with 61 percent for the total sample.
