JFK Assassination: Most Americans Believe in a Conspiracy

     [In an Associated Press poll] conducted in mid-April 2013, 59 percent of Americans think multiple people were involved in a conspiracy to kill President John F. Kennedy, while 24 percent think Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, and 16 percent are unsure. A 2003 Gallup poll found that 75 percent of Americans felt there was a conspiracy.

     As the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death approaches, the number of Americans who believe Oswald acted alone is at its highest since the period three years after the November 22, 1963 assassination when 36 percent said one man was responsible.

  1. Jim, I love your blog and respect your opinion. What's your view on the JFK hit?

  2. John, because I have not studied the case thoroughly, I do not have a strong opinion regarding any of the possible scenarios. My friend, Dr. John Kelly, a retired criminal justice professor at the University of Delaware, studied the case for 20 years and taught a course on the assassination. It is his opinion that Oswald was the lone assassin. I do trust Dr. Kelly's informed opinion.

    1. Thanks for taking the time out to reply, Jim. Yes, that's my opinion too. Despite all the hullabaloo, the facts seem to fit LHO being the lone assassin.
