In a recently released Rasmussen Reports poll, nearly half of likely U.S. voters believe that the FBI operates as President Joe Biden’s “personal Gestapo,” showcasing an ever degrading level of trust in the federal agency that has been marred with reports of questionable tactics and motives over the past few years.
A survey of 1,000 likely voters conducted between December 29th and 30th found that 46% of those polled indicated they had a generally positive opinion of the FBI, with merely 15% saying they hold a “very favorable” opinion of the agency. For context, this is down from a 60% overall favorable opinion of the FBI back in May of 2020.
With respect to negative sentiments toward the FBI, the poll found that 47% of those polled held a generally unfavorable view of the agency – with 26% noting that they held a “very unfavorable” attitude of the FBI.
It’s hardly shocking to see that many Americans don’t hold a positive view of the FBI, considering the numerous debacles and scandals the agency has been tied to over the past couple of years.
One of the more recent scandals we at Red Voice Media covered involved the FBI raiding the home of Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, as well as the homes of his employees, this past November over a diary that purportedly belonged to Ashley Biden.
Also, after nearly a year’s worth of gaslighting regarding if the FBI was actively present during the incident at the Capitol last January, recent reports confirmed numerous clandestine agents were prepared in the days leading up to and strategically placed in and around the Capitol complex on January 6th.
Not to mention, we at Red Voice Media also reported on how the FBI was apparently privy for roughly 18 months to the alleged exploits of CNN producer John Griffin, a man accused of allegedly trying to solicit a 9-year-old girl, prior to his arrest this past December.
Needless to say, with the numerous scandals such as those of the aforementioned magnitude, it’s of little surprise to learn that trust in the FBI is waning in such a fashion.
