A whopping 0.6% of Americans think Tucson shooting was a reflection of polarizing rhetoric

I had a good giggle today. Some stats from Pew show the ability of liberal slander to influence public opinion. After about a week of propaganda about how polarizing conservatives caused the Tucson shooting, a poll reveals the share of Americans that accept the liberal view:

polarizing rhetoric 0.6%
media coverage of politics/talk shows 0.6%
extremists in the Republican party 0.6%

My guess is that about 0.6% of Americans are liberal pundits.

Americans are getting more and more sensible about these mass shootings:















Compared to 2007, more Americans are focusing on the individuals. 

And there's even growing support for the Second Amendment:

















Who says the country is going to hell in a handbasket? (Okay, okay, much of the time I do).
