Difference in women and men believing politicians

John Fund at the WSJ's Political Diary:

The Walter Mitty-like fantasies of Hillary Clinton dodging sniper fire prompted pollster Scott Rasmussen and the Washington Times to ask Americans just how much they think political candidates fudge the truth.

Not surprisingly, 71% of those surveyed believe that politicians "embellish the truth" when discussing their past exploits. A mere 10% think politicians are routinely truthful. Mr. Rasmussen found the most skeptical subgroup to be men under the age of 40 -- 83% thought politicians exaggerated. By contrast, women under the age of 40 were most prone to accepting the statements of candidates at face value -- only 64% were suspicious of their claims. . . .
