Rasmussen: 58% Say Politics Behind Nobel Awards

Most Americans think politics were behind President Obama getting a Nobel Peace Prize. Fifty-eight percent think the motivation for the award was political. That is up from forty percent last year.

Rasmussen reported:
Americans are much more skeptical of the motivation behind the awarding of the prestigious international Nobel Prizes following President Obama's win Friday of the Nobel Peace Prize.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 58% of American adults now believe that politics plays a role in the awarding of the Nobel Prize. That's an 18-point jump from 40% a year ago.
