NEW YORK – (PTSD News Service) A new Washington Post/ABC News poll shows that slightly more than two-thirds of Americans knowingly lie when they are surveyed by polling organizations. 

The study shows that the reasons why people deliberately lie is that 22% are afraid that their real opinion is wrong, 15% are worried that someone in their family who has a different opinion will find out, 14% say they are worried that God will find out they have a different opinion than their preacher, 12% don’t really have an opinion on whether they have an opinion, 11% say what they think Rush Limbaugh would say whether or not they may really have a different opinion, 9% are worried that the government may find out their real opinion and take away their guns, 8% say that they hate Obamacare but they don’t know why, and 5% said that 60% of the time they have trouble with math and the other 60% of the time they don’t, 3% say that they really don’t know anything at all and have no plans to change that and 1% think that polls should only be answered by Polish people.  

The poll has a plus or minus 5% chance of error before taking into account whether everyone polled may have been lying.
