Was it hyperbole or was he serious? It’s hard to say, but the head of one of the country’s premier polling services just made a startling statement for simply being honest about the Obama Administration’s employment numbers.

Specifically, he is afraid that he could “suddenly disappear” for telling what he believes is the truth — that the administration is dramatically fudging its unemployment figures in a bid to make the president look better.

Here’s what started it all.

In a recent column published on the firm’s web site, Jim Clifton, CEO of Gallup, wrote that the administration’s claim that the unemployment rate has fallen to just 5.6 is bogus:

Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

Most Americans don’t know this
