Poll: Most don't believe historical account of JFK's death
Maybe it's that Americans are a highly skeptical people. Or maybe it's the influence of the hundreds of books written about JFK's assassination. Or maybe it's just that many of the facts don't add up.
Either way, most Americans don't believe the historical account of John F. Kennedy's death. The 35th president was shot to death in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, 50 years ago Friday.
Here are the results of THELAW.TV's poll:
70 percent of Americans say, no, they don't believe the official story of JFK's death
30 percent of Americans say, yes, they believe the official story of JFK's death
Here are some comments from the poll respondents:
- "I'm not one to believe government conspiracies. But I think there's more to what we've been told on this subject."
- "Of course not. I'm a rational human being."
- "No, but I also don't believe all the conspiracy theories either."
- "Well, it was rather extremely convenient for his replacement."
THELAW.TV's survey was conducted on Thumb using a demographically balanced internet-based survey of 500 American adults and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.9 percent.
