Welcome to the 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll for February 2014. "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." More than 200 years later, Walter Scott's words are truer than ever. Americans know what it is like to be lied to and they don't like it.
Families, friendships and marriages can be torn apart by lies. Most people have heard the old joke, how do you know when a politician is lying? His lips are moving. Many national politicians know how much trust is lost when their lies or deceptions are discovered and Watergate taught us that trying to cover them up is even worse.
The theme of this month's poll is about truth and lies. It is a topic as old as man and has been the cause of some of the greatest events in history and some of the worst. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? "You should always tell the truth under every circumstance." We look forward to hearing your opinions, and now the results.
