44% of Voters Believe a ‘Secret Cabal’ Controls U.S. Government, Including 37% of Democrats

53% of Republicans, 41% of Independents.

  • A pollster for President Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns, Joel Benenson, shared the results of an online poll asking respondents if they believe the “world is controlled by a secret cabal.”
  • 44% of registered voters said they do, Axios reports.
  • A ‘cabal’ is defined as “the contrived schemes of a group of persons secretly united in a plot (as to overturn a government)” or “a small group of secret plotters, as against a government or person in authority.”
  • The same poll found that voters nevertheless still also believe that the U.S. “is a strong democracy”: 66% of Democrats, 55% of Republicans, and 54% of Independents.
  • Axios—a left-wing news outlet founded in 2016 by former Politico journalists Jim VandeHei, Mike Allen, and Roy Schwartz—called the results “stunning,” apparently because voters from all sides of the political spectrum, not just right-wing “conspiracy theorists,” suspect a parallel shadow organization really runs the world.

  • The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a massively influential political organization with representation in every major world government and international corporation with the goal of installing globalism (centralized control over every country) through what it’s called the ‘Great Reset.’
  • In 2017, WEF founder and chairman Klaus Schwab told an audience at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government that he was “very proud” of the fact that former Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin had been able to “penetrate the cabinets” of their respective nation’s governments. Watch below.
  • “They all have been Young Global Leaders of the World Economic Forum,” Schwab said. “But what we are very proud of now; the young generation like Prime Minister Trudeau, [the] president of Argentina, and so on; that we penetrate the cabinets.”
  • The WEF’s partners include major multinational corporations and politicians from all over the world. These partners are the “driving force behind the Forum’s programmes,” according to the WEF. Those programs include pushing an alarmist “climate change” narrative, using the COVID-19 pandemic as an “opportunity” to accomplish the Great Reset, and expanding China’s global influence and power.
  • The Forum promotes the idea that by 2030, world populations will “own nothing” and we will “be happy” about it, and that the United States “won’t be the world’s leading superpower.”
  • American voters are also fairly united in which issues they rank most important ahead of midterm elections.
  • 44% of likely voters say the economy and inflation (economy 26%, 18% inflation or cost of living) are their top two concerns, including 58% of Republicans, 34% of Democrats, and 40% of Independents, ​a New York Times/Siena College survey​ found.
