ABC Skips Own Poll on ‘Record Low Support’ for ObamaCare

 

According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll, support for ObamaCare is at a “record low” level. Yet, viewers wouldn’t know that from watching the network. Journalists on Sunday’s World News and Monday’s Good Morning America failed to cover the poll from their own network.
