Narrative Fail: 61% Support Sequester Cuts (Except the Military)
Try as hard as they might, a just-released ABC News poll proves that Obama and his media have failed miserably in their attempt to scare Americans over a measly 2% cut in a federal government budget currently banking annual trillion-dollar deficits. The fail, it burns:
For all the dire warnings, most Americans welcome a five percent cut in overall federal spending this year. But the defense budget is another matter.
The public by nearly 2-1, 61-33 percent, supports cutting the overall budget along the lines of the sequester that took effect last Friday. But by nearly an identical margin, Americans in this ABC News/Washington Post poll oppose an eight percent across-the-board cut in military spending.
Being okay with cutting everything except the military? How Republican-esque.
Obama spent a ton of political capital with his Chicken Little act, and it all blew up in his dishonest face.
P.S. ABC News deserves credit for its willingness to poll on the sequester with and without the military cuts added.
