Over half of Americans believe that Democrat President Joe Biden’s federal government is “corrupt,” a new poll has revealed.
The way the Jan. 6 Capitol riot has been portrayed by Biden’s administration, Democrats, and the media, has stoked severe levels of distrust among the public.
Democrats and their allies in the legacy media have been lashing out angrily at those upset with the federal government’s actions, particularly regarding the 2020 election.
As the Democrats continue to spend taxpayer money on attacking their opponents with the congressional Jan. 6 House Select Committee, Americans are losing trust in the government.
According to the new poll, from the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, more than half of the nation believes the government is “corrupt.”
A majority of Americans said Biden’s government is “corrupt and rigged against everyday people like me,” including two-thirds of Republicans and independents, and about half of Democrats.
And a large bloc is open to the concept it may “soon be necessary to take up arms” against the feds.
Over a quarter of Americans said they have so much disdain for the government that they believe it may be necessary “at some point soon for citizens to take up arms against the government,” according to the new poll.
Just days before Independence Day, the poll shows that 28% of voters hold such a belief.
That belief is held by one in three Republicans, roughly one in three independents, and one in five Democrats.
The survey also comes amid televised congressional hearings by the Democrats’ House committee “investigating” last year’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.
The riot is being framed by the committee as an “insurrection.”
The University of Chicago said the poll “reveals not only the growing divides we have witnessed in recent years but strong sentiments that the majority of media outlets contribute to these divisions by intentionally misleading their audiences to promote a political point of view.”
The survey was conducted among 1,000 registered voters by Republican pollster Neil Newhouse and Democratic pollster Joel Benenson.
