View Diary: Bob Gates calls criticism of response to Benghazi attack 'cartoonish view of military capabilities' (95 comments)

  •  Pew poll on Benghazi (0+ / 0-)
    More than half - 56% - of those surveyed said they were not at all following the congressional hearings or coverage of the developments, while 44% said they were following it very or fairly closely. That's down from the 61% who said they were tracking the story last October, just weeks after the attacks.

    Four in ten said the Obama administration had generally been dishonest when addressing the attack and 37% viewed the Obama administration as honest.

    A significantly larger portion of Republicans see dishonesty in the administration with seven in ten saying the Obama administration has been dishonest. Independents' views split 48% dishonest and 30% honest.

    Republicans are also following the story more closely than Democrats or independents, the poll found.
