Two New Polls Show Obama’s Signature Law and ‘Phony’ Message are Failing Miserably

But they’re both Fox polls, so the palace guard media is unlikely to ask about them.
In the first poll, a large majority of the American people still hate Obamacare.
A Fox News national poll released Thursday also asks voters about how they think Obamacare is being carried out: 31 percent say “it’s going fine,” yet a 57-percent majority feels “it’s a joke.”
Republicans are more than three times as likely to say it’s a joke (87 percent vs. 25 percent). Still, a quarter of Democrats agree.
In the second poll, a larger majority of Americans say that the scandals Obama calls “phony” are not phony at all.
On the snooping by Justice Department lawyers into reporter records? 59 percent say it’s a “serious situation.” The same portion thought targeting of political groups by the IRS was serious. On recent revelations about Obama’s expansions of domestic surveillance? 69 percent disagree with the president. On the Islamist raid on the Benghazi outpost and subsequent changes to official talking points? 78 percent say it’s for real.
