“Biden’s Gestapo:” Poll Reveals Plummeting Public Confidence in the FBI
New polling commissioned by Rasmussen reveals that public trust in the Federal Bureau of Investigation has dropped considerably in recent years, with a narrow plurality of Americans now viewing the troubled agency unfavorably.
47% of Americans view the FBI unfavorably, with 46% viewing it favorably. The poll surveyed 1,000 Americans across the country, asking them if the viewed the FBI very favorably, favorably, unfavorably, or very unfavorably. The poll is one of the first to indicate that a plurality of Americans don’t trust the FBI, only a few percentage points away from a majority of the American people disapproving of a federal agency commissioned to enforce the federal laws purportedly in their interests.
64% of Republicans agreed with a statement regarding the agency by conservative political operative Roger Stone, in which the longtime Trump advisor accused the FBI of acting as “politicized thugs” and “Joe Biden’s personal Gestapo.”
A previous Rasmussen poll indicated that the FBI had far greater bipartisan popularity, throwing its credibility with Republicans to the wind through a series of partisan political scandals. Disgraced former FBI agent Richard Trask recently plead guilty to attacking his wife in a vicious beating, having previously masterminded a progressive sting op to ensnare a bumbling “militia” into plotting what he says was a plant to kidnap Michigan’s Democratic governor. 60% of Americans had approved of the FBI as late as May 2020.
More famously, the FBI created fake accusations of “Russian interference” in the 2020 as a propaganda operation against Donald Trump, with some accusing the agency of inserting provocateurs at the January 6th demonstration at the Capitol in a de facto honeypot operation.
Naturally, Democrats are far more likely to support the federal agency, with 63% of self-identifying supporters of the party favorably viewing the FBI.
