Yet Another Poll that States that Sarah Palin’s Cross-Hairs & Political Rhetoric Had Little to Do with Tucson Shooting


CNN has yet out another poll looking for blame in the Tucson, AZ shooting tragedy that left 6 dead and 14 wounded. However, once again those polled do not find Sarah Palin’s bulls-eye map or political rhetoric to blame.  Previous polls from CBS and Quinnipiac University confirm the same, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Fox News had little to do with Jared Loughner’s evil acts.

“But while a large majority predict that tragedy in Tucson will lead to more civility in political debates, only one in ten think that change will be permanent,” adds Holland. “Seven in ten say politicians will tone it down in the short run but the change won’t last very long, and 18 percent think there will be no change at all.”

Seven out of ten blame the resources available to deal with people who may be mentally ill as a contributing factor to the shooting.

According to the poll, the public doesn’t blame Sarah Palin’s website for the incident in Arizona. Only a third of all Americans say that the website – which had an image that looked like the crosshairs of a gun marking Gifford’s congressional district – deserves a great deal or a moderate amount of blame. The former Alaska governor put the website up last year during the debate over health care reform, to highlight 20 congressional districts won by Sen. John McCain in the 2008 presidential election, where Democratic representatives were voting in favor of the legislation.

More from Weasel Zippers and the 35% of loons who continue to have PDS and believe all that has been disproved and the fact that there is zero evidence that Loughner had ever seen Palin’s bullseye map. Even more pathetic, 56% of Democrats believe the bulls-eye map myth. How is there supposed to be this so-called change in political discourse if more than one 1/2 of a party polled lives in an alternate universe and is so consumed with hate and Palin Derangement Syndrome, that they will believe all that has been disproved? But when you have a MSM and Pima County Sheriff with an agenda from minute one disseminating false information and their own opinions in place of facts …

      This is really sad that 1/2 the people polled have so little thinking skills that they will believe the propaganda machine of the media and persons like the sheriff and his twisted agenda.

      There is in finality only one person responsible for the shooting and that is the shooter himself.

      However, the parents have a part in this by not having this young man evaluated when he was in the early grades of high school and certainly following his dismissal from Pima County Jr. College.

      Based on the little evidence emerging, it appears that either the mother or the father or perhaps both became enablers by furnishing him transportation and a means of acquiring (money or credit card) the gun and ammunition.
      Furthermore, since there were no records of his arrests by the sheriff or other LE, it appears that it is possible the mother used her influence in the county government to erase the records. Had they been available, no reputable gun dealer would have sold him a gun or ammunition.
