Most Americans believe that government corruption has gotten worse under the Obama administration, according to a new national survey conducted by two conservative organizations.
The survey, conducted by the conservative Judicial Watch in partnership with Breitbart.com, shows 77 percent of the 1,000 adults questioned are concerned about government corruption and 52 percent of them think the problem has gotten worse over the past five years since President Barack Obama first took office.
"The Judicial Watch-Breitbart poll shows that the American people are thoroughly disenchanted with a government they see as corrupt and secretive," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
"The support for the rule of law on immigration runs against the establishment narrative pretending there is overwhelming support for mass amnesty. On a host of issues ranging from corruption to transparency, to election integrity, to Obamacare President Obama is completely out of touch with the American people."
The poll taken Dec. 15-16 also sought information on attitudes concerning other subjects, including voter fraud, immigration policy, and Obamacare.
When it comes to government corruption, Republicans tended to be more concerned, the survey revealed, with 88 percent being most concerned, followed by independents at 75 percent and Democrats at 68 percent.

dont bite the hand that feeds
Most? EVERYONE I speak to says that this is the most corrupt administration EVER! And I agree.
how many would still vote for him because they think the Republican will be worse?
White Hou...er...Bastille day.
Well, we’ll see if Hillary is the next president. (I just threw up).
And just think of all the corruption we don’t even know about yet. Reminds me more and more of the old Soviet Union.
hillary isnt going to be the next president
she is going to be the next king
I am not convinced Obama will step down.
you are probably right he would have to step up before he can step down
Only 52% believe it’s gotten worse under obama. These are the same people who will excuse their king by saying “Everybody does it.”
The only concern a dem ever shows about corruption is when they have been left out of the kickbacks, payoffs, etc.
And yet even most Dems are still worried. Does that tell you something?
Obama is transparently EVIL.
The only reason the number wasn’t much higher was
because the press has covered up much of the corruption.
To be GOVERNED is to be kept in sight, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right, nor the wisdom, nor the virtue to do so.
To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction, noted, registered, enrolled, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished.
It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, trained, ransomed, exploited, monopolized, extorted, squeezed, mystified, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, despised, harassed, tracked, abused, clubbed, disarmed, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and, to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, outraged, dishonored.
That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality.
P.J. Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution in the Nineteenth Century, trans. John Beverley Robinson. London: Freedom Press, 1923, p. 294
I said the same thing when I ran across that quote last night. It describes the swamp in DC perfectly.
