A new Fox News Poll finds that 51 percent think that Obama administration "knowingly lied" about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya "to help the President Obama during his re-election campaign" against Mitt Romney.

The poll also found that 54 percent think Obama's administration "tried to deceive" the American people about the events surrounding the Benghazi terrorist attacks.

Worse for the Democrats, 50 percent think their preferred 2016 presidential nominee, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, "tried to deceive" the American people about the State Department’s role in the events surrounding the Benghazi terrorist attacks.

The poll has more bad news for the Democrats. Their phony scandals defense isn't working:

  • Most the respondents, 71 percent, consider the IRS targeting of conservative and tea party groups for extra scrutiny serious;
  • Most the respondents, 78 percent, consider the Benghazi scandal serious;
  • Two-thirds of the respondents, 67 percent, approve of Congress establishing a special committee to investigate Obama's decisions and activities surrounding the terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans; and
  • Most the respondents, 79 percent, also consider the National Security Agency's collection the phone and Internet records of millions of Americans to be serious.

The Fox News poll of registered voters was conducted May 10, 12-13, 2014. The full poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percent.
