Most Voters View Arizona Shootings As Random Act of Violence, Not Politics

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 28% of adults say the shooting in Arizona by Jared Loughner was the result of political anger in the country. Fifty-eight percent (58%) say instead that it was a random act of violence by an unstable person. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.

Well, it's good to see that 58% of the people can recognize a nutjob. But, how can 28% of the people think this guy was making a political statement? And how can another 14% admit they are clueless?

As Obama tries to spin the shooting, it will pay to file this for later review and see how the well the spinning is going 60 and 90 days out.
