The idea of leaking classified national security information to the press in an effort to make President Obama look good, is backfiring. A new Rassmussen Report shows 73 percent of voters see recent leaks as a concern, with a large portion seeing leaks as a major concern. 

Most voters are concerned about recent leaks of classified security data to the news media, and a plurality believes those leaks will hurt President Obama’s reelection chances.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 73% of Likely U.S. Voters are at least somewhat concerned that the security leaks will compromise national security, with 40% who are Very Concerned. Twenty-five percent (25%) don’t have that concern, but that includes just three percent (3%) who are Not At All Concerned.

Now that the classified information is out there, the Obama administration is digging the hole deeper by covering up who in Obama's inner circle gave classified information to the press, which as history shows, doesn't end well.
