Dozens and dozens of polls are released each month ranging in topic and ideological bias. What unites them all is they tend to reveal a kernel of truth that can be extrapolated and analyzed, which is why they’re so highly valued amongst the D.C. political class. Don’t listen to Joe Biden when he says polls don’t matter — his team is laboring over their results every day.
Poll results often hint at trends by capturing the the temperate of most Americans across the country.
It just so happens the rise of anti-Biden chants across the country coincide with his downfall in the polls.
This recent poll is no different.
Many U.S. voters think the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is Joe Biden’s “personal Gestapo,” according to a Rasmussen poll released Tuesday.
“Roger Stone, an adviser to former President Donald Trump, has said there is ‘a group of politicized thugs at the top of the FBI who are using the FBI … as Joe Biden‘s personal Gestapo,’” the poll report states. Respondents were asked if this statement was agreeable.
“Forty-six percent of voters agree with Stone’s assessment, including 29 percent who Strongly Agree. Thirty-eight percent disagree with Stone’s claim, including 25 percent who Strongly Disagree.”
The results of the poll, which was conducted with 1,000 likely U.S. voters on Dec. 29-30, come after the FBI conducted a raid on the home of Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, looking for information about Ashley Biden’s diary.
Voter opinion on whether FBI Director Christopher Wray is influenced by the president has reached a “near-complete reversal.”
Now, 50% of voters believe Wray is influenced by Biden “in his decision making,” and only 26% think he is independent of the administration. 25% of those polled are unsure.
In May 2017, 53% thought the FBI director was independent while 26% thought he was beholden to the president. Approval of Wray has also declined since 2020.
“Only 10% of voters now say Wray is better than most who held the job before him – down from 13 % in May 2020 – while 25% believe Wray is worse than most previous FBI directors, up from 17% in 2020,” according to the report.
By political affiliation, more Democrats (63%) than Republicans (38%) and unaffiliated voters (35 %) have a favorable impression of the FBI.
Go figure! The party ostensibly supportive of anti-police movements finds the FBI more acceptable than Republicans.
57% of Republicans and 56% of unaffiliated voters have an unfavorable view of the FBI compared to 30% of Democrats. Biden’s most ardent supporters are more likely to favor the FBI.
Republicans (64%) and unaffiliated voters (47%) also agree with Stone that there is “a group of politicized thugs at the top of the FBI who are using the FBI … as Joe Biden‘s personal Gestapo.”
30% of Democrats agree.
Both Republicans and unaffiliated voters are also more likely than Democrats to think the FBI director is influenced by the president.
Another great shift is occurring in the dominant political parties today, similar to when Democrats abandoned southern slave ownership and adopted northern industrial labor politics.
Now, Democrats have abandoned the working class, took up arms with major corporations and federal law enforcement agencies, and enacted a level of tyranny the likes of which modern America has never before seen.
