“Americans are united in the belief that our political system is broken, that politicians are corrupt, and that neither major political party has the answers,” according to Scott Rasmussen in his new book, In Search of Self-Governance,Additionally, when Mr. Obama stated that taxes had gone down for 95% of all Americans, a significan't majority believe that is false. just 21% of voters nationwide believe that taxes have been cut for 95% of Americans.
Most (53%) say it has not happened, and 26% are not sure. Other polling shows that nearly half the nation’s voters expect their own taxes to go up during the Obama years.Personally, last year, when I got a $2K per year raise...actually saw my net income go down as that put me into a higher tax bracket. You might say that sounds like a big raise, but when you consider that I was only making $38K AFTER the raise...to have a negative impact was significant. So, personally, I don't believe any politician when they say "your taxes are going to go down". I think they're lying.
The president also asserted that “after two years of recession, the economy is growing again.” Just 35% of voters believe that statement is true, while 50% say it is false.
Obama claimed that steps taken by his team are responsible for putting two million people to work “who would otherwise be unemployed.” Just 27% of voters say that statement is true. Fifty-one percent (51%) say it's false.
