Plame Case Matters To The Public

by Steve

Some of us have heard the GOP talking points that the public doesn’t care about the Valerie Plame case, and regardless, the public trusts the White House.

Wrong. In a CBS News Poll out today taken through Wednesday, it appears that the Plame case is more important to the public than the White House wants to admit. Eighty percent of those polled think the case is at least of some importance to the nation, with 41% saying the case is of great importance. Furthermore, seventy-seven percent think that the Bush Administration is hiding something or mostly lying about the case, with 55% saying the administration is hiding something. And a majority thinks that someone in the Bush Administration was responsible for leaking Valerie Plame’s identity to the media.
