Poll: Wall Street Journal/NBC News: Controversies raising doubts about White House ‘honesty’
[link to thehill.com]

A new poll finds a trio of controversies raising public concerns about the “honesty” of the Obama administration, even as the president maintains his approval rating.

A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released late Tuesday shows 55 percent believe the IRS targeting of conservative groups raised questions about the administration’s “overall honesty and integrity.”

Fifty-eight percent say the administration’s handling of the Benghazi Consulate attack also raises questions about the honesty of the White House. The same number say the Justice Department’s subpoenaing of reporter email and phone records in national security leak investigations also raises concerns.

Thirty-three percent say Obama is mainly or totally responsible for the IRS scandal, with 37 percent holding him accountable for the DOJ reporter subpoena controversy. Obama faces the most questions over the Benghazi incident, with 41 percent believing he bears responsibility.

From the same poll, in January, 45 percent of independent voters said Obama was “honest and straightforward”. Now that has dropped to 27 percent.

Ouch!

Front page of NBC news on line. Wonder what Obama is thinking! NBC did not spell out all the rest of the bad news on the front page though.

Danger ahead for Obama? NBC/WSJ poll
shows eroding support from independents

President has successfully absorbed several punches in recent weeks, but poll numbers reveal he can’t afford any more missteps.

I would like to see a more neutral poll agency ask the same questions and publish it.
