Rasmussen: 71% of Voters Believe the IRS Deliberately Destroyed E-mails to Hide Guilt of Criminal Activity
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, a remarkably 71% of voters believe that the IRS deliberately and willfully destroyed emails related to IRS-gate and the targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups to hide evidence of criminal activity. Only 22% believe the IRS did not break the law, while 4% were undecided. It is fair to say that this polling is a resounding condemnation against the IRS that crosses all political parties. How bad is it when a government agency like the IRS is believed to play partisan politics and cannot be trusted?
Think about this, more than 7 in 10 individuals surveyed believe that the IRS committed a criminal activity in destruction of property and obstruction of justice to hide the guilt of their even greater criminal activity as a Democrat party ignores it and Barack Obama calls it a phoney scandal. This should be chilling for all Americans.
Most voters think it’s likely the IRS deliberately destroyed e-mails about its investigations of Tea Party and other conservative groups to hide its criminal behavior. Two-out-of-three now believe IRS employees involved in these investigations should be jailed or fired, and most suspect the agency of targeting other political opponents of the Obama administration.
As we are reminded by Real Clear Politics, a recent Fox News poll found similar results, 76% of voters surveyed believed that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails were deliberately destroyed. The distrust in the IRS was spread across all parties, including 90% of Republicans, 74% of Independents and 63% of Democrats. Only 12% of respondents believe the emails were accidently destroyed.
It gets better, these are the folks in charge of enforcing Obamacare. How’s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for ya America?
Rasmussen Poll Shows Many Americans Have No Concept of Free Speech … 55% Favor Government Oversight of Political Ads & Candidates’ Comments
ARE YOU INSANE … DID ANYONE TAKING THIS POLL UNDERSTAND WHAT FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS? DO YOU WANT TYRANNY?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble,
and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
An alarming 55% if likely voters in a recent Rasmussen poll stated, “they believe the government should be allowed to review political ads and candidates’ campaign comments for their accuracy.” It gets better, they also wanted to punish those that it decides are making false statements about other candidates. OK FOLKS … HAVE YOU COMPLETELY LOST YOUR MINDS!!! You do realize that “Freedom of Speech” is intended to prevent a tyrannical government from trampling the speech, opinions and comments of ab individuals right? I could care less what party was in power, I would never want a government to control campaign speech. It is up to the voter to inform yourself as to whether some one is fabricating the truth. If that is too difficult, don’t vote.
So 55% of clueless voters would want whatever political party was in power to review and determine whether a political ad was truthful or not? Who could see anything going wrong with that because of course political parties are not partisan of course. The American Spectator has an idea, just create more government bureaucracy and a new agency, call it the Ministry of Political Truth, to oversee this brave new government power. Oh wait, you don’t want the government agency to do it, how about the media?
The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments this week in a case aimed at overturning an Ohio law that makes it a crime to make false statements in a political campaign. But most voters favor government policing of the truthfulness of campaign ads and statements.
Fifty-five percent (55%) of Likely U.S. Voters believe the government should be allowed to review political ads and candidates’ campaign comments for their accuracy and punish those that it decides are making false statements about other candidates. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 31% oppose such government oversight. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Presently we have a president in Barack Obama who thumbs his nose at the US Constitution, you would actually give him the power to control political speech for campaign speech, REALLY? WAKE UP AMERICA, many brave souls fought and died to bring freedoms and independence to the colonies and form a United States. Act like it!
Rasmussen: 61% of Americans Support the XL Keystone Pipeline as Obama Panders to Enviro-Wackos and Delays Decision Until After 2014 Midterm Elections
WHO IS OUT OF TOUCH WITH AMERICA AND PANDERS TO AN EXTREMIST MINORITY FOR POLITICAL REASONS?
A recent Rasmussen poll has support for the XL Keystone Pipeline at all time highs. Sixty-one percent of Americans now support the building of the oil pipeline from Canada to Texas, while only 27% are opposed. Also, 62% of likely voters also say that the pipeline is good for the economy. However, the anti-fossil fuel Obama would rather pander to the environmental wacko minority and continues to dither and delay the decision on the construction. Just last week Barack Obama once again delayed his decision to go forward on its construction as he pushed it back until after the 2014 midterm elections putting Democrat party politics ahead of jobs for Americans. But of course we were told that Obama’s delay had nothing to do with politics from Debbie Wasserman-Schiltz. Of course not. Also reported in the poll was that 57% of voters say the pipeline is at least somewhat important to how they will vote in the next congressional election, with 23% who say it is Very Important.Democrats better be careful in 2014, there is no way that 57% are all Republicans.
I don’t care what a majority of the American people think, you are stuck with me. I do not work for you.
Support for building the Keystone XL pipeline is now at its highest level ever.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61% of Likely U.S. Voters now at least somewhat favor building the major oil pipeline from Canada to Texas, while just 27% are opposed. This includes 37% who Strongly Favor the project and 10% who Strongly Oppose it. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Support for building the pipeline is up four points from 57% in January and now has edged above the previous high of 60% found in November 2011 when President Obama first delayed the project for further environmental study.
It is Democrats and the MSM that always claim that the GOP panders to the radical Tea Party, Americans just might want to take a look at who Obama is taking his orders from.
Oh by the way, this weeks jobless claims jump 24,000 this week to 329,000 as Obama refuses to approve a project that would automatically create jobs in the private sector with no tax paid for stimulus.
The number of Americans filing for new unemployment benefits jumped last week, a sign layoffs have increased since touching a seven-year low earlier this month.
Initial claims for jobless benefits, a measure of layoffs, rose by 24,000 to a seasonally adjusted 329,000 in the week ended April 19, the Labor Department said Thursday. The weekly gain was the largest since December.
Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal expected 315,000 new claims last week. Claims for the prior week were revised up by 1,000 to 305,000.

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 33% of Americans say that they have been personally hurt by Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation, Obamacare. In contrast, just 14% of all voters now say they personally have been helped by the ACA. This is a rather staggering number when you consider that the Obama administration has (Unconstitutionally) purposely delayed many aspects of the employer mandate and given waivers to businesses and unions until after the upcoming elections.
But I thought you could keep your insurance, doctor and hospital if you liked them, PERIOD?
One-in-three U.S. voters now says his or her health insurance coverage has changed as a result of Obamacare, and the same number say the new national health care law had a negative personal impact on them.
Thirty-three percent (33%) now say their insurance coverage has changed because of the new law, up a point from January and the highest finding since last July.
Seventy-four percent (74%) of those who have health insurance rate their coverage as good or excellent.
Just 14% of all voters now say they personally have been helped by the law, down from 16% in January. Thirty-three percent (33%) say they have been hurt by the law, up from 29% earlier this year and the highest negative rating since April 2013. Fifty percent (50%) say it has had no impact on them.
71% of Voters Believe It’s Somewhat Likely President Obama or Senior Officials in his Administration Were Aware Before Obamacare was Passed that Health Insurance Costs Would Go Up for Some Americans.” … #You Lie
71% of Americans believe they were lied to about Obamacare …
From the Washington Examiner via a recent Rasmussen poll, that 71% of Americans believe that President Obama and his health care team knew well in advance that insurance costs would surge despite his promises they wouldn’t. Also, 40% want HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to retire or be fired. So not only did they know you could not keep your insurance if you liked it, they also knew the costs would increase as well.
Rasmussen Reports found that 71 percent of voters believe “it’s at least somewhat likely that President Obama or senior officials in his administration were aware long before the law began being implemented that health insurance costs would go up for some Americans.”
Worse for the president: Only 18 percent want Obamacare to move on unchanged, but 43 percent want it repealed and the process started over and another 35 percent want Congress to fix it in a piecemeal fashion.
However, I have to sadly agree with the comments by Debra Heine at Brietbart.com with regards to the apathy and “oh well” mentality that is going on in the United States. We are a government of, by and for the people and ‘We the People” seem more engaged to the celebrity of the day and reality TV.
When the vast majority of American voters can agree they were lied to in order pass a controversial bill on a party line vote that amounts to a takeover of nearly 1/6 of the economy, and a large percent of them say, yeah, so what? – Our country is in deep trouble. According to Rasmussen, 48% of Likely U.S. Voters still approve of Obama’s job performance. Unbelievable.
America, would you stand the hell up for yourselves and take your liberty, freedoms and country back! Pretend like you actually care. The Founding Fathers are shaking their collective heads at the apathy.
In other polling, Rasmussen finds that 51% believe that the “individual” mandate should be delayed, while 34% say no.
Well this as good a poll as any to use on Halloween …
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 37% of Americans say that a Zombie would do a better job than the current federal government officials that are in Washington, DC. One might say the undead vs. the brain dead. To be honest with you for the most part these days, I do not think we could tell the difference between the two. Actually, how do we know they are not Zombies? We have yet to see any polling on how vampires, ghosts or ghouls do as compared to federal government.
All in favor of the bill say aye …
It’s not exactly a vote of confidence in the powers that be: A sizable number of Americans think the undead would do a better job than the brain dead in Washington, D.C.
Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults believe the federal government would do a better job than zombies running the country today. But the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that most Americans don’t share that view, with just as many (37%) who feel zombies would do a better job running the country and another 26% who can’t decide between the two.

Rasmussen Poll: More Americans View Blacks As Racist Than Whites Or Hispanics … Even Blacks Think Blacks are More Racist than Whites
I thought that racism was supposed to go away when Barack Obama was elected president?
The following is a rather eye opening poll from Rasmussen with regards to racism in the United States. The poll states that blacks are more likely to be racist that White or Hispanics, 37% of American adults think that most black Americans are racist, while just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% consider most Hispanics racist. What might be the most interesting aspect of the poll is that a plurality, 31%, think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way. The LEFT wants to smear Rasmussen as right-wing in order to make claims the the poll is has no merit. However, what would one expect the polling data to be when the liberal MSM and race baiters in the US have all but allowed such “reverse” racism to go unpunished.
We need to look no further than the racially charged murder case of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin to see such actions. Rachel Jeantel took the stand for the prosecution and testified that Trayvon described the man following him [George Zimmerman] as a “creepy ass cracker”. Jeantel was asked whether that was a racial slur, she said no. Thus, we can see that if such a slur is not considered racial, then such racism is institutionalized within the culture.
Wasn’t Obama supposed to be the post-racial president?
Americans consider blacks more likely to be racist than whites and Hispanics in this country.
Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults think most black Americans are racist, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% say the same of most Hispanic Americans. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
There is a huge ideological difference on this topic. Among conservative Americans, 49% consider most blacks racist, and only 12% see most whites that way. Among liberal voters, 27% see most white Americans as racist, and 21% say the same about black Americans.
From a partisan perspective, 49% of Republicans see most black Americans as racist, along with 36% of unaffiliated adults and 29% of Democrats.
Among black Americans, 31% think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way.
Rasmussen Poll: 26% Of Obama’s Supporters View Tea Party As Nation’s Top Terror Threat … Liberalism Really is a Disease
The AMA does not need to made obesity a disease … they need to make Liberalism one.
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 26% of those who approve of President Barack Obama’s job performance think that the Tea Party is a greater threat to America than radical Muslim. They don’t call these folks “moonbats” for nothing. As for those who actually have a functioning brain and who disapprove of Obama’s performance, 75% consider radical Muslims to be the bigger terrorist threat and just 1% are influenced by the MSM and name the Tea Party. It is rather remarkable that those who are for the US Constitution, limited government and balanced budgets is some how considered worse than those who would kill Americans. So sorry if the Tea Party believes in freedom and liberty. However, this is what happens when a Presidents makes more of an effort to have a war on its own citizens who express their First Amendment rights of Free Speech and a lapdog liberal MSM acts as a presidents propaganda arm to smear his political enemies rather than report the truth. UNREAL.
Must watch VIDEO … Yea, because these folks look and act like terrorists, unreal! (Tennessee Tea Party 4/15/09)
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters consider radical Muslims to be the bigger threat to the United States today. Thirteen percent (13%) view the Tea Party that way, and another 13% consider other political and religious extremists to be the larger danger. Six percent (6%) point to local militia groups. Two percent (2%) see the Occupy Wall Street movement as the bigger terrorist threat. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
However, among those who approve of the president’s job performance, just 29% see radical Muslims as the bigger threat. Twenty-six percent (26%) say it’s the Tea Party that concerns them most. Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea Party than radical Muslims.
This is actually quite something. The far LEFT is truly deranged. Sorry, but I strongly oppose Barack Obama, his agenda and pretty much 99.9% of what he believes in, but I do not think the radical LEFT is a greater threat to America than Al-Qaeda. However, after this poll … maybe the radical, far LEFT is more dangerous.
The Daily Caller reminds us that the Tea Party has never committed an act of terror. Too bad the Leftist Occupy movement can’t say the same.
In the latest Rasmussen job approval daily tracking poll, President Barack Obama is well underwater as the multiple scandals that plague his presidency and a continued floundering economy. Only 45% of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing, while 54% disapprove. Including 63% of Independents who disapprove of the job Obama is doing. Honestly, how can 83% of Democrats really approve of the job Obama is doing? That is simply just partisan BS. Obama is mired in multiple scandals with Benghazi, the IRS, AP, James Rosen & Fox News, Fast & Furious, the NSA and the many coming out of the State Department. Add that to a floundering economy, record number of Americans on Food Stamps and disability and a president that has no status in the world to get anything done. We have a lame duck president in Obama who had lost the trust of the American people. Except for partisan hack Democrats who would say BO is doing a good job no matter what.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama’s job performance. Fifty-four percent (54%) now disapprove (see trends).
Eighty-three percent (83%) of Democrats approve, and 87% of Republicans disapprove. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 35% approve, and 63% disapprove.
RCP have Obama’s average polling job approval at 45.6% Approve and 46.% disapprove.
Americans No Longer Trust Their Government … 57% Fear Government Will Use NSA Data to Harass Political Opponents
Americans have lost trust in their government and believe it is a threat to their individual rights. Our rights are endowed by Our Creator, not government. Don’t ever forget what our Founding Fathers states … “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government …”
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. (Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776)
What ever happened to the dream of Our Founding Fathers of a government of, by and for the People? It would appear that those days are gone as Americans now fear the very government that is supposed to be for “We the People”. The continual scandals of the Obama administration bring into play just how big, how out of control and how vindictive the federal government has become. In a recent Rasmussen poll, 57% of Americans fear the Government will use NSA data to harass political opponents. Why would they feel like that, it’s not as though the IRS willfully and purposely targeted conservative and Tea Party organizations, while they have liberal and progressive groups a free pass. Oh that’s right, they did. Forget the fact that it is most likely Unconstitutional to collect data on all Americans to use at a later date, whether it is for national security or not. The problem is that when there is a situation that can present itself for abuse, it will be compromised. We need to look no further than the IRS scandal that obviously aided Barack Obama in winning reelection by harassing and preventing his opponents from organizing. And despite the fact that Barack Obama has told us that they do not listen in on phone calls, according to another Rasmussen poll, 68% think it is likely that the government is listening to their conversations.
Making matters worse that Americans have lost trust in their government is that 56% of Americans believe that their Government is a threat to their individuals rights. How is this possible that “WE THE PEOPLE” have allowed a government to go rogue? Another 60% say it is likely other agencies targeted Conservatives as well. We have a government that is “Too Big” to succeed. What are the chances that the IRS also perpetrated their illegal acts against conservatives to help Obama and ensure that Obamacare would not be repealed along with the 16,000 news IRS jobs that go along with Obamacare? Hmm, think there is a slight conflict of interest there from the organization that was to implement and enforce Obamacare?
The United States was founded on a belief that governments are created to protect certain unalienable rights. Today, however, more voters than ever view the federal government as a threat to those rights.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% of Likely U.S. Voters now consider the federal government a threat to individual rights rather than a protector of those rights. That’s up 10 points from 46% in December.
