A new Monmouth poll finds 53% of the American public believes that the U.S. government engages in widespread monitoring of its own citizens and worry that the U.S. government could be invading their own privacy.
Also interesting: “There are no significant partisan differences – 57% of independents, 51% of Republicans, and 50% of Democrats are at least somewhat worried the federal government is monitoring their activities. Another 24% of the American public are not too worried and 22% are not at all worried.”
Said pollster Patrick Murray: “We usually expect opinions on the operation of government to shift depending on which party is in charge. But there’s an ominous feeling by Democrats and Republicans alike that a ‘Deep State’ of unelected operatives are pulling the levers of power.”Save to Favorites
