Poll Reveals The Horrifically Low Number Of People Who Believe Michael “The Liar” Cohen’s Testimony!
When you get caught up in a lie, you tend to have to work very hard to get people to believe you if it has become clear that you would lie for practically any reason.
Trust is something that when it is broken takes a good long time to regain when you have broken that with someone. Michael Cohen is learning this the hard way right now.
It’s sort of like the boy who cried wolf. Everyone knows that old story by now and we all know that eventually people just stop believing you if you lie enough.
When Michael Cohen was giving his testimony before Congress this week, it was like nothing some of us had ever seen in the vein that you had this guy that was going out before the world and saying that he had lied about everything else but he was going to tell the truth now.
You wouldn’t trust a convicted felon with a lot of things and to tell the truth happens to be one of them.
Only 37 percent of people surveyed found former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s testimony in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform this week to be credible, according to a poll published Friday.
The results of the poll, conducted by The Hill-HarrisX poll between February 28 and March 1, suggested that the high-profile testimony of Michael Cohen would likely not have a big political impact for President Donald Trump.
The percentage of those finding Cohen credible was still higher than those that did not find him credible — 25 percent. But the plurality of respondents, 39 percent, said they had not formed an opinion of Cohen’s testimony.
Democrats were more likely to believe Cohen was credible, at 58 percent, than Republicans, at only 15 percent.
Only 35 percent of independent respondents said they found Cohen credible, versus 18 percent who said he was not. Almost half, 48 percent, said they were unsure.
More male respondents were certain of their opinion on Cohen than female respondents.
Forty-two percent of male respondents said they found Cohen to be credible, 31 percent said he was not, and 27 percent were unsure.
That is compared to only 32 percent of female respondents believing him to be credible, 19 percent who said he was not, and 49 percent saying they were unsure.
During the hearing, Cohen accused Trump of being an unscrupulous person who cared only about winning but also contradicted himself by saying Trump never expected to win the presidency and just wanted to promote his brand.
He also accused Trump of directing him to do things by “secret code” — not outright telling him to do things but communicating in a code by which he knew exactly what Trump wanted.
He expressed regret over working with Trump for the past ten years and said he had nothing to gain from his testimony. However, he refused to rule out future book deals, movies, or TV show appearances, or to donate any future proceedings from such events to charity.
