Americans embrace 'Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself' in rebuke to establishment

More than half of Americans believe it’s likely that “Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself,” and that’s an ill omen for Joe Biden — and a good sign for Bernie Sanders.

Neither the former vice president nor the Vermont senator has an Epstein connection as far as anyone knows, but Mr. Biden is clearly the establishment candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination. Mr. Sanders is the opposite.

And the viral meme that spawned countless T-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers and hashtags comes as a sign that voters are in no mood to trust their institutions, said University of Miami professor Joseph Uscinski, author of “American Conspiracy Theories.”

“Conspiracy theories at their core are about protesting the establishment,” said Mr. Uscinski.

A Rasmussen Reports poll last month showed that 52% believe it’s more likely Epstein was murdered in his Lower Manhattan jail cell because “he knew too much,” while just 21% think he committed suicide.

Those skeptical of the Epstein suicide ruling were also more likely to back President Trump, according to an Aug. 27 Emerson Polling survey, known for his four-year vendetta against the Washington ruling class.

“Trump supporters seem to be bigger into this than Democrats, but within Democrats, Bernie supporters seem to be the ones most likely to believe in it,” said Mr. Uscinski. “People who support Trump and Bernie tend to be more conspiracy-minded, anti-establishment folks. And that’s why they tend to be more taken with conspiracy theories.”

Mr. Biden’s poor performances in Iowa and New Hampshire — and Mr. Sanders’ strong showing — come as “Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself” fever continues to rage, albeit at a slightly lower temperature than in December, when ugly Christmas sweaters festooned with the phrase were flying off the shelves.

Just another indicator that the MSM has lost the trust of the people. No one believes Main Stream News anymore.

1. That's right, they all go to basement dwelling "youtubers" for their news and commentary.
