(CNSNews.com) - A national survey has found that U.S. voters consider the United Nations anti-American by a 2-to-1 margin.
The survey by the Center for Individual Freedom Foundation also found that conservatives believe the world body to be anti-American by a margin of 61 percent to 23 percent, while moderates agree with the belief by a margin of 52 percent to 27 percent, and liberals believe it by a margin of 41 percent to 36 percent.
"One of the things that's most striking about the results of the survey is the relative consistency of viewpoints among very diverse demographic groups," said CFIF executive director Jeffrey Mazzella.
"The U.N. has long attempted to impose a system of global taxation to redistribute wealth from citizens of the world's developed nations like the United States to developing countries around the globe," Mazzella said.
"In fact, Secretary General Kofi Annan amplified his call for 'alternative sources of financing' at a recent meeting of the U.N. General Assembly in New York," he said.
"If Annan had his way, American taxpayers would be sending even more of our hard-earned dollars to the U.N. in the form of global taxes on everything from the gas we use in our automobiles to our e-mail communications," Mazzella added.
"The American people clearly recognize that global taxation threatens our nation's sovereignty, especially when you consider that the U.N. would use that money against American interests," he said.
The survey of 1,200 voters was conducted between Nov. 14 and Nov. 16 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percent at the 95 percent confidence interval.

Meanwhile, the State Department keeps offering to toss the U.N.'s salad every chance they get!
Well, and that is because Americans ain't deaf and blind.
We may be slow but we ain't dumb.
Sniffle sniffle. :)
I don't need no stinkin' poll to tell me that. Somethings are just obvious.
Or as us Southerners say, talking slow don't mean thinking slow.
No way 23% of conservatives would disagree.
Well DOH! Why do we? At some point we must allow the axe to drop.....drop on every country that supports terrorism or UN corruption... The sharpness of the axe can be their choice. Once they achieve nuclear parity....we have a problem...Houston!
Or we could just go ahead and toss him off.....
Really liked the cartoon!
Thanks! Humor seems to get more responses.
I am disappointed that they didn't publicize the rest of the questions which were on the survey. For instance:
Q 23. Do you think it gets dark at night? Y / N
Q 26. Would it be so cold in the winter if all of that
snow and ice wasn't around? Y / N
Q 28. Do you tape a picture of Hillary Clinton to the
inside of your medicine cabinet as an emergency
emetic? Y / N
Enquiring minds want to know... Did 23% of the survey subjects need the questions read to them?
This is one of GW's great accomplishments. Prior to his admin claiming you though the UN was up to no good would get you pegged as a tinfoil hat type.
Now its mainstream to call em as they are.
I stand in awe of GW.
We ain't slow either. I would be very surprised if the U.N. won a lot of popularity contests even back in the 40s. It sure didn't when Wilson proposed the idea way back when.
I think....that....you're right....on....this BUMP.
cat $%#% is unamerican?
Further proof that self-identified surveys leave much to be desired. You can call a cow a duck, but that don't make it a duck.
Ice and snow actually make it warmer in the winter; and deginitely make it feel warmer. You're mixing up cause and effect.
