Most Americans Believe There Was No Benghazi Coverup
Even though most Americans are critical of how the White House has handled the attack in Benghazi, a majority believes there was no coverup.
Fifty-four percent are unhappy with the White House’s handling of Benghazi, a CNN poll found, and only 40 percent are satisfied.
When Americans are asked if they believe the White House lied or engaged in a coverup, 54 percent said that inaccurate initial statements from the White House were based on the best knowledge they had at the time. Forty percent believe there was a coverup, according to the poll.
Forty-eight percent believe the U.S. could have prevented the attack, and 42 percent think it could not have been stopped.
