A new Monmouth University poll is spelling bad news for the “swamp,” according to the poll a majority of Americans believe unelected official orchestrate DC policy.
The results of the poll found that 74 percent believe that a “deep state” exists and 21 percent claim that it does not.
The results point out that 7 out of 10 American in each political group (Republican, Democrat, and Independent) believe in a deep state. Thirty-one percent of Republicans, 33 percent of independents believe the deep state “definitely exists,” while 19 percent of Democrats believe. Of course, Democrats don’t need a “deep state” because they just rig their own primaries right out in the open.
“We usually expect opinions on the operation of government to shift depending on which party is in charge,” Monmouth University Polling Institute Director Patrick Murray said in a statement. “But there’s an ominous feeling by Democrats and Republicans alike that a ‘Deep State’ of unelected operatives are pulling the levers of power.”
The survey of 803 adults was conducted from March 2 to 5. It has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
