The 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy has drawn enormous press coverage, official recognitions, endless investigations and dramatic re-enactments.

But the nation, perhaps, is not yet satisfied with any of the answers or revelations.


Six-out-of 10 Americans - 62 percent - think there was “an official cover-up” regarding the truth about the Kennedy assassination, this according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll.

It appears to be something that even political rivals can agree upon: 62 percent of Republicans, 65 percent of conservatives, 58 percent of Democrats and 58 percent of liberals also believe a cover-up has been part of the history.

Another 62 percent of Americans feel that the assassination was part of a “broader plot.”

Again, there is across the board agreement among opposites: 61 percent of Republicans, 64 percent of conservatives, 63 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of liberals agree.

The poll found that 29 percent of Americans overall say the assassination “was the work of one man.”

The poll numbers are still pretty close: 34 percent of Republicans, 29 percent of conservatives, 28 percent of Democrats and 32 percent of liberals agree.

The Washington Post/ABC News poll of 1,008 U.S. adults was conducted Nov. 14-17.
