Gallup Poll Proves O'Reilly Wrong On The Deficit
By: Steve - February 16, 2012 - 10:00am
On the Tuesday Factor show, as usual O'Reilly was spinning the facts on what the American people care about the Federal Deficit. And not only did O'Reilly wildly inflate the importance of the deficit to the American people, he had two right-wing hacks (Charles Krauthammer & John Stossel) on to spin it with him.
O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: President Obama wants voters to believe that massive federal spending will improve their lives and that he will tax the rich in order to make free stuff available.
And now the facts on the Federal Deficit from a February 9th Gallup Poll, the facts that O'Reilly ignores.
The polls show that about half the country is buying that and it will take a very strong counter-argument from Mr. Obama's opponent to defeat him in November. Free stuff is a powerful lure, no question about it."
Quotes From Gallup:
Overall, 71% of Americans mention some economic issue as the most important problem, an increase from 66% in January.
The actual question they asked was "What do you think is the most important problem facing the Conutry today" and here are the results.
The economy in general (31%) and unemployment (30%) are the two specific problems mentioned most often, as they have been each month since December 2009.
1) Economy - 31%
2) Jobs - 30%
3) Dissatisfaction with Government - 16%
4) Federal Deficit - 8%
5) Healthcare - 6%
6) Lack of Money - 5%
7) Education - 4%
8) Immigration - 4%
9) Moral Decline - 3%
Notice the 2 big issues O'Reilly is constantly talking about (Deficit & Immigration) are only at 8% and 4%, proving that O'Reilly is not only wrong when he says the Deficit is a big concern to a lot of people, it proves he is out of touch with the American people.
O'Reilly is a nothing but a right-wing hack who puts out propaganda for the GOP by reporting on the issues most Americans care nothing about. While ignoring the jobs and economic reports that show an improvement, because it makes Obama look good. Instead of reporting the facts and what the people care about, O'Reilly spins out right-wing propaganda and refuses to report any good news that makes Obama look better.
