Obama is one of the greatest con artists ever to gain access to the President's chair in the Oval Office. Smugness on the border of smarmy, arrogant and condescending, narcissistic and a liar. He happens to be a terrific actor, however. Obama played golf while black Chicago burned. What, in reality has this totally hollow man actually done for this nation and the world? The evidence is in the streets today. The evidence is in these statistics.
Gallup: One Third of Households Victimized by Violent Crime in Past Year.
Nearly one-third of U.S. households (29 percent) contain a family member victimized by violent crime in the last year, according to Gallup.
The survey reveals that Americans’ “direct experience” with crime is at a 16-year high.
Seventeen percent said they or someone in their home had money or property stolen, while 14 percent said they had property, including their home or vehicle, vandalized. Another five percent said they had their car broken into and four percent said they or someone in their household had a car stolen from them.
Three percent said someone in their household was assaulted or mugged; two percent said a member of their household was a victim of armed robbery; one percent cited sexual assault.
Gallup tracked digital crimes separately, and found 27 percent said they or someone in their household has credit card information stolen, up from 22 percent in 2015. Identity theft has risen dramatically: 17 percent said they or someone in their home was a victim, a sharp increase from eight percent in 2009.
All told, 29 percent said they or a household member suffered from vandalism, robbery, or another violent crime in the past year—compared to 22 percent in 2001.
The poll comes a couple months after the FBI released 2015 crime statistic
