(POLL) Is America becoming a police state?

More than two-thirds of American voters worry that the US is turning into a police state – a tyrannical government that engages in mass surveillance, censorship, ideological indoctrination, and targeting of political opponents.

That’s according to Rasmussen Reports.

The survey finds 72% of likely voters are concerned that America is becoming a police state, including 46% who say they are “very concerned.”

Only 23% say they are not concerned.

Worries about the FBI overreach and weaponization have increased since the raid last year on former President Donald Trump’s Florida home. 

Fifty percent (50%) of voters now agree with the statement, “The FBI is a danger to the freedom and security of law-abiding Americans,” including 28% who “strongly agree.”

Forty-five percent (45%) say they disagree, including 26% who “strongly disagree.”

  1. In many aspects, the gerund is wrong. We ARE a police state when the forces of government are weaponized against its opponents. We are living in the 1930s.

  2. More like the 1950s USSR.
    There is only the Uniparty, not Republican or Democrat.
    All are only interested in their own goals.

    1. We are safe from Catholics who prefer the Latin Mass and mom’s who don’t want rapists in skirts in their girls locker rooms and bathrooms.

    2. Rick,

      How perfectly ironic,
      that the man who
      cheated his way into
      office, then caused
      war between NORTH
      and SOUTH — not to
      end slavery but to
      CENTRALIZE power
      ( Bavarian Illuminists
      and Banking House of
      Rothschild controlled
      him ) — could have said
      this TRUTH about what
      threatened the
      new nation/republic :

      “Corporations have been enthroned. An era of corruption in high places will follow and the money power will endeavor to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people . . . until wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”
      -Abraham Lincoln


      1. I must presume you get your history from the leftist’s point of views. Possibly Howard Zinn’s version, the 1619 project or some other left biased source wanting to skew history.
        Whether one thinks the civil war was primarily about abolishing slavery or to prevent the South seceding from the Union is debatable but clearly it was not to Centralize power with the federal government.
        We can also debate whether Teddy Roosevelt or Woodrow Wilson began the progressive era which is truly the beginning of expanding control for the federal government.

  3. Election integrity has been destroyed, non-citizens are crossing the border en masse and often allowed to vote, the FBI and DOJ have been completely politicized. Obama’s desired fundamental transformation of America is near complete. And where are the feckless Republicans? We need a party to fight for We the People and for the republic that our brave soldiers fought and many died to preserve. Yes, it is a police state when freedom of speech is no longer guaranteed, election integrity is undermined, political opponents are charged with fabricated crimes, and the media acts like state media instead of doing their job of holding those in power to account. I pray God helps us from national suicide.
