Poll: Belief in JFK conspiracy slipping slightly

May 9, 2013

Associated Press


(AP) — A clear majority of Americans still suspect there was a conspiracy behind President John F. Kennedy's assassination, but the percentage who believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone is at its highest level since the mid-1960s, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.

....According to the AP-GfK survey, conducted in mid-April, 59 percent of Americans think multiple people were involved in a conspiracy to kill the president, while 24 percent think Oswald acted alone, and 16 percent are unsure. A 2003 Gallup poll found that 75 percent of Americans felt there was a conspiracy.

The Oswald-acted-alone results, meanwhile, are the highest since the period three years after the assassination, when 36 percent said one man was responsible for Kennedy's death.

Oddly enough, as of this morning I could find nothing about it here: http://ap-gfkpoll.com/poll-archives

Maybe someone else can.

Belief in the AP slipping as well. As for the great rags of small town PA, they are the manipulation boards for the Mockingbird.... Try the mcall.com next. They could be reporting an even lower number.

Let's get a Fox News, Quinappiac, and Keystone Polling co. together for a poll. I bet the contervailing winds of these groups might just find us the truth, which will be in the high 80% of people believing in a conspiracy.
