Rasmussen Survey Reports The Sky Is Blue And 75% Of Americans Favor Auditing The Fed (Time To Put Pressure On The Senate; Email Addresses For Every Senator Included)

National Survey of 1,000 Adults
Conducted July 27-28, 2009

By Rasmussen Reports

1* A proposal has been made to audit the Federal Reserve and make the results available to the public. Do you favor or oppose auditing the Federal Reserve?

75% Favor
9% Oppose
15% Not sure

Note: Margin of Sampling Error, +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence

With 5 clicks you can send this survey result to your Senator.  I have everything you need to do so inside.

More momentum for Ron Paul and HR 1207.  It's time to put pressure on the Senate.  Here are the email addresses for every Senator, and click here to forward them a copy of this story and poll results.  Look up their email address here and then just forward this article.  Two Senators, two links. Thank you!

I haven't seen these results reported anywhere else, and I just found them myself in the last hour.  The most impressive number from the Rasmussen survey is that only 9% oppose auditing the Federal Reserve, while 15% responded with the cop-out 'unsure'.  This was a national telephone survey of 1,000 adults conducted July 27-28, and the results were released last Wednesday.

See all the poll details here:

  • The new survey finds that an overwhelming majority of Americans in every demographic category – including age, gender, political affiliation, race and income – disagree with Bernanke and favor auditing the Fed to make its secretive deliberations public.
  • Fifty-two percent (52%) of Americans support Bernanke’s efforts to speak out more publicly than his predecessors as Fed chairman, but his favorables have gone down over the past month. A plurality (41%) think the previous Fed chairman, Alan Greenspan, did a better job, too.

Read the whole thing here.


Phone numbers, fax numbers, and email addresses for the Treasury, Senate, House, and White House are all  here.

Daily Bail, Thanks for the info. I had only one senator to email since my other is on board already. I ended up writing a long letter to him (with my real name, of course) and posting a version which I invite ANYONE to use, copy, paste, edit, rearrange, etc, without any restrictions, to suit their needs: http://sonicninjakitty.wordpress.com/2009/08/03/open-letter-to-us-senators-regarding-s-604/

Please contact your senators, explain the situation, and ask them to co-sign S 604!!!!

We are getting close to gaining control over our money again, for the first time since 1913--please write and call!!!!

"A plurality (41%) think the previous Fed chairman, Alan Greenspan, did a better job, too."

This tidbit makes me think that we shouldn't take these poll respondents seriously. 41% tells us that lots of retards think we were somehow "better off" at the height of Greenspan's bubbles, because those bubbles aren't doomed to pop, you know. How many of them would still favor an audit if it were fake boom times? Make no mistake; I favor an audit, too. So the thrust of the poll (75% want audit) makes sense. But much of this could be a case where people have the right idea for the wrong reason; they want the Bernanke Fed audited because they think mean ol' B.B. somehow snapped the economy out of Dreamland. Accordingly, we'll have to move quickly with the audit. If the economy gets frothy again, a lot of fairweather morons will no longer want investigation.
