Today marks the 50 year anniversary of the JFK assassination. I have been called a conspiracy theorist many times for posting my opinion on certain subjects on this site. It seems however, at least on arguably the greatest conspiracy theory of all time; the government coup to assassinate the amercian president JFK, I am not alone.

JFK Assassination: Majority Of Americans Are “Conspiracy Theorists”


Multiple polls on 50th anniversary show only around a third believe the lone gunman theory

Several polls released this week to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of president John F. Kennedy reveal that the majority of Americans still do not believe that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin, and that there was a wider conspiracy that was covered up.

In a Rasmussen poll, only 36 percent of Americans surveyed said that they believe Kennedy was targeted by a lone gunman on this day, November 22, in 1963.

The survey found that just as many, 37 percent, believe JFK was murdered in a larger plot involving other actors. Another large portion of respondents, 27 percent, said they are not sure, emphasizing the mystery that still surrounds the fateful event.

The Rasmussen poll also revealed that those who were alive at the time of the shooting are more likely to believe in a conspiracy than younger respondents, indicating that the questioning of the official story as described by The Warren Commission may be waning as generations pass.

In a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, a large majority of 62 percent believe that Oswald did not act alone, with only 29 percent buying the official line.

The same percentage also believe that a government cover up was perpetrated to prevent the public learning the truth on the assassination.

A Gallup poll found almost the exact same numbers believe in a conspiracy, with 61 percent saying they believe JFK was not killed by a lone gunman and only 30 percent believing that Oswald was the sole assassin.

The latter figures are almost identical to ones from a poll conducted one year after the assassination, in November 1963, when just 29 percent said they believed the lone gunman theory.

In the 50 years since JFK’s death, a majority of Americans have ALWAYS believed that their was a wider conspiracy being played out. In 1979, the U.S. House Select Committee on Assassinations even concluded that the assassination was “probably” the result of a conspiracy. This caused public perception of a conspiracy to skyrocket to over 80 percent.

The newest Gallup poll also indicates that most Americans who believe the conspiracy theory suggest that the federal government and/or the CIA assassinated Kennedy.

In a Marist poll, 58 percent of Americans believe Oswald did not act alone, with 28 percent believing he did, and 14 percent unsure.

Unlike the findings of the Rasmussen poll, the Marist survey notes that Americans under the age of 30 are more likely than any other age group to say that Kennedy’s assassination was a conspiracy, with 67 percent giving this opinion.

Of those aged 30 to 44, 54 percent believe in a conspiracy, with 57 percent of Americans 45 to 59, and 59 percent of those 60 and older believing there was a larger nefarious plot to kill the president.

After the assassination, 40 witnesses claimed to have seen gunshots or smoke from the infamous grassy knoll in the northwest corner of Dealey Plaza. As detailed in Richard Belzar’s book Hit List, it is also the case that 15 witnesses died prematurely between the years 1963 & 1967 at odds of one hundred thousand trillion to one.

Fifty years later, thousands of JFK assassination documents are still sealed, with many due to be unclassified in 2017, unless the federal government once again deems it a potential security risk to do so.

While many are familiar with the Zapruder film, the footage below is less well known. It shows the Secret Service agent nearest to JFK apparently being told to stand down moments before Kennedy’s assassination in Dealey Plaza 50 years ago today.

We could be seeing skewed results based mostly off the fact that most people today weren't alive, or at least not old enough to remember, when JFK was killed.

They are slightly skewed in the fact that younger generations who didn't witness the assassination are more inclined to believe what they are taught in U.S. history in school... that JFK was assassinated by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald.

In the 50 years since JFK’s death, a majority of Americans have ALWAYS believed that their was a wider conspiracy being played out. In 1979, the U.S. House Select Committee on Assassinations even concluded that the assassination was “probably” the result of a conspiracy. This caused public perception of a conspiracy to skyrocket to over 80 percent.

Now 50 years later, polls still show that a majority of americans, nearly 60 percent, believe there was a conspiracy to assassinate JFK while only 29% believe the lone gunman theory.

So the last official word from the government regarding the assassination of JFK was that it was "probably" the result of a conspiracy.

Fifty years later, thousands of JFK assassination documents are still sealed, with many due to be unclassified in 2017, unless the federal government once again deems it a potential security risk to do so.

What info regarding the assassination could be sooo sensitive that it is still sealed and hidden from the public?

Or that they are more inclined to believe that authority = bad since today's culture has become very much anti-authoritarian. The house committee also concluded that Oswald shot Kennedy, so either he's guilty, at least half way, or the whole of the investigation is bunk.
