November 22, 2023: On Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. Sixty years later, 17% believe that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone while 61% believe that others were involved.

A Scott Rasmussen national poll found that, among those who do not believe Oswald acted alone, 56% believe it is likely that U.S. intelligence agencies or other U.S. government agencies were involved in the assassination. Forty-two percent (42%) believe it is likely that communists were involved.

Methodology

The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 3.1 percentage points. The survey of 1,000 registered voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on Nov. 15-16, 2023. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation's population of registered voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.

Note: Neither Scott Rasmussen, ScottRasmussen.com, nor RMG Research, Inc. have any affiliation with Rasmussen Reports. While Scott Rasmussen founded that firm, he left nearly a decade ago and has had no involvement since that time.
