Okay, so, on the one hand. Only eleven percent of people polled believe that Mitt Romney deserves credit for the auto bailout to which he was quite outspokenly opposed.
On the other hand, however, a whopping eleven percent of people polled believe that Mitt Romney deserves credit for the auto bailout to which he was quite outspokenly opposed!!!
According to the latest Daily Kos/SEIU State of the Nation poll conducted by Public Policy Polling, just 11 percent of Americans believe Mitt Romney deserves "a lot of credit" for saving the auto industry, while 69 percent say he does not.
This was one of those rare political questions on which there is across-the-board unanimity: Even a majority of Republicans and conservatives say Romney does not deserve credit for bringing back the auto industry. Still, 22 percent of tea party supporters, 20 percent of Republicans and 19 percent of conservatives did give him credit…
Outside of the political right, support for Romney's claim was almost nonexistent. Five percent of Democrats agreed with him as did 9 percent of independents and 7 percent of moderates.
According to the poll's internals, 1,000 sentient adult human beings (380 of which were Democrats) took part in this poll, which means that 110 of those people said "Oh yeah, let's give that guy credit for this because okay." And 19 of them were Democrats.
Makes you wonder how absurd a lie would have to be to knock those numbers down? Do you think that if he said he invented the sky, he'd get less than five percent believing him? Maybe. But I'm relatively certain he'd get a solid 4 percent regardless.
