A CBS News poll revealed that 53 percent of respondents think President Barack Obama is a strong leader.

In tonight’s Talking Points Memo, Bill O’Reilly asked how Americans can think the president’s leadership is strong.

The first reason, he said, is that the poll was taken among adults, not registered voters or likely voters.

“The harsh truth is that many of us are blatantly ignorant and lazy,” he said. “We simply will not pay attention to the world around us. We get our information from other people, who may be as dumb as we are […] Apathy in America is through the roof.”

O’Reilly said ideologues are the second reason for the poll results.

“President Obama can count on core support from liberal people who put theory over reality,” he said.

After five years in office, O’Reilly said that the economy is still troubling, the Affordable Care Act is a mess, poverty is on the rise and America has lost credibility overseas.

“The Factor” host said it’s “almost unbelievable” in the face of these facts that Americans think Obama is a strong leader.
