A poll conducted by CBS News finds that only 33% of Americans feel that the so-called “harsh political tone,” known by the anyone not trying to cash in on the tragedy as “normal debate that has always existed,” had anything to do with Saturday’s mass shooting outside a Tucson Arizona Safeway.
The shooting, perpetrated by Jared Loughner, someone who is pretty clearly a mental case, left 6 dead and 14 more, including Democrat Representative Gabrielle Giffords, injured.
Overall, 57 percent of respondents said the harsh political tone had nothing to do with the shooting, compared to 32 percent who felt it did. Republicans were more likely to feel the two were unrelated – 69 percent said rhetoric was not to blame; 19 percent said it played a part. Democrats were more split on the issue – 49 percent saw no connection; 42 percent said there was.
Independents more closely reflected the overall breakdown – 56 percent said rhetoric had nothing to do with the attack; 33 percent felt it did.
The telephone poll was conducted among 673 adults across the country. The margin of error is +/- 4 percent.
