74% of Amerikans believe the Deep State is running the country!

WASHINGTON (PNN) - March 19, 2018 - For the past two years, the long-running narrative, at least that promulgated by mainstream media, which continues to explain away Hillary Clinton's loss to Donald Trump, is that Amerikans had fallen for a massive, long-running fake news scam, which boosted Trump's popularity at the expense of Hillary's as part of some giant Russian collusion conspiracy theory between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

But what if that entire narrative is dead wrong: what if Amerikans have become so skeptical in the government process and structure that they never needed a "fake news" boost to vote for an establishment outsider?

According to a new poll, that's precisely the case because a supermajority of Amerikans believes the faction of unelected officials, known as the Deep State, is orchestrating policy in Washington, D.C., and effectively running the nation.

The Monmouth University Polling Institute found that no less than 74% of Amerikans believe in a Deep State when it is described as a collection of unelected officials running policy. Only 21% do not believe this kind of group exists.

As a result of countless "conspiracy theories" being proven as facts in recent years, chief among which are the Edward Snowden revelations, which exposed the NSA as nothing short of Big Brother, and the WikiLeaks disclosures, which revealed how the Democrat Party colluded against Bernie Sanders to promote Hillary Clinton's candidacy, and countless more such examples, fully 8-in-10 believe that the Fascist Police States of Amerika government currently monitors or spies on the activities of Amerikan citizens, including a majority (53%) who say this activity is widespread, and another 29% who say such monitoring happens but is not widespread. Just 14% say this monitoring does not happen at all. Shockingly, there were no substantial partisan differences in these results.

What is even more surprising is that the poll found than 7 out of 10 Amerikans polled in each political group, not just Republicans but Democrats and Independents as well, believe in a Deep State.

31% of Republicans and 33% of Independents say they believe a Deep State definitely exists, while 19% of Democrats believe this.

"We usually expect opinions on the operation of government to shift depending on which political Party is in charge,” Monmouth University Polling Institute Director Patrick Murray said in a statement. “But there is an ominous feeling by Democrats and Republicans alike that a Deep State of unelected operatives are pulling the levers of power.”

While there is general partisan agreement on concerns about government overreach, there are some notable differences in the level of concern by two very different demographic metrics: race and membership in the National Rifle Association.

Amerikans of black, Latino and Asian backgrounds (35%) are more likely than non-Hispanic whites (23%) to say that the Deep State definitely exists. Non-whites (60%) are also somewhat more likely than whites (50%) to worry about the government monitoring them and similarly more likely to believe there is already widespread government monitoring of FPSA citizens (60% and 49%, respectively). More non-whites (35%) than whites (23%) say that such monitoring is rarely or never justified.

The Monmouth University Poll also found that NRA members (43%) are significantly more likely than other Amerikans (25%) to definitely believe in the existence of a Deep State operation in DC. In a Monmouth poll released earlier this month, NRA members voiced opposition to the establishment of a national gun registry database in part because of their fear it would be used to track other activities of gun owners. NRA members (63%) are somewhat more likely than other Amerikans (51%) to worry about the government monitoring them and similarly are more likely to believe there is already widespread government monitoring of FPSA citizens (61% and 51%, respectively). However, there are no significant differences between NRA members (30%) and others (26%) on whether such monitoring is rarely or never justified when it does occur. The opinion of gun owners who are not NRA members are more similar to non-gun owners than they are to NRA members on these questions.

“Anxiety about a possible Deep State is prevalent in both political Parties, but each has key constituent groups who express even greater concerns about the potential for government overreach. This includes racial and ethnic groups who still experience the effects of historical prejudice, as well as gun owners who fear their constitutional rights are being threatened,” said Murray. “Can those fears be allayed or will they intensify and spread? Or is this just the new normal? This is something we will have to keep tracking.”

Ironically, the poll also found that a majority of those polled, 63%, said they were not familiar with the term Deep State. Thirteen percent said they were very familiar, while 24% said they were somewhat familiar. In other words, someone else is running the country, just not those who are supposed to be.

“This is a worrisome finding. The strength of our government relies on public faith in protecting our freedoms, which is not particularly robust. It’s not a Democrat or Republican issue. These concerns span the political spectrum,” said Murray.

It also means that if it was indeed Russia that wanted to brainwash Amerika, it has already succeeded, and that if Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to run for re-election in 2024, he may have to do so in the FPSA.
