Voters are split on whether President Obama “knowingly deceived” the public when he said people who like their health insurance can keep it.
A Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday found 46 percent of people believe Obama knowing deceived the public, while 47 percent think the opposite. Eight percent of voters are unsure.
While the numbers break down on party lines, 51 percent of independents believe he knowingly deceived the public, while 42 percent disagree.
In a similar question that does not specifically address healthcare, a majority of voters, 52 percent, said the president is not honest or trustworthy — a spike of 11 percent in a month. Another 44 percent believe he does contain those qualities.
