President Barack Obama has lost the trust of most Americans: a new poll shows that about six in 10 voters think he lies on important issues some or most of the time.

The Fox News poll found that 37 percent think the president lies "most of the time." Another 24 percent say he lies "some of the time."

Twenty percent say Obama lies "only now and then," and 15 percent say he "never" lies, the survey found.

The results are about in line with a Fox News poll in November that asked voters whether they thought the president knowingly lied about Obamacare when he said that "if you like your healthcare plan you can keep it. Period."

In that poll, 50 percent thought Obama knew he was lying, and 40 percent thought he didn't know people would lose their plans.

Also, 59 percent thought the Obama administration knew ahead of time that people would lose their insurance, while 55 percent thought the White House "tried to deceive" people about it.

In the latest survey, among those who said the president lies most of the time were Democrats (13 percent) and other key Obama supporters: blacks (12 percent), liberals (16 percent), unmarried women (31 percent) and people under 30 (34 percent), results showed.

Hillary Clinton did far better, the survey found: 54 percent of voters say the former first lady and secretary of state is honest and trustworthy. Forty-nine percent say the same of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, while 41 percent think New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is honest and trustworthy, the poll found.

The survey also found that Obama's job approval rating stands at 42 percent, with 51 percent disapproving.

Last month, the president was in negative territory in a Fox News poll, with a 54 percent disapproval rating.

The latest poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
