More trouble for the Romney campaign as Pew Research releases a new poll Monday, which found Americans reacted negatively to Mitt Romney’s response to the US embassy attacks in Cairo and Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead — Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
Mitt Romney, while trying to look ‘presidential’ falsely claimed President Obama’s first response to the violent attacks in Libya was to “apologize” for American values.” He backed up the claim by citing a statement released from the U.S. embassy in Cairo that was issued before the ambassador was killed. The statement wasn’t approved by the White House and the Obama administration strongly condemned the violence. No, true is lost on Mitt Romney and his sidekick.
The Pew poll found that 48 percent of the Americans view Romney’s statements negatively, while 26 percent saw them positively. The poll found 45 percent of Americans approved of President Obama’s response to the situation, while 36 percent disapproved. Forty-five percent approve of President Obama’s respose to the situation, while 36 percent disapprove.
