New Poll Finds Most Americans Open to Alternative 9/11 Theories

ReThink 911

 One in Two Surveyed Have Doubts About Government’s Account of 9/11.

 46% Suspect Controlled Demolition of World Trade Center Building 7 after Viewing Video Footage of Collapse.

On the 12th anniversary of 9/11, a new national survey by the polling firm YouGov reveals that one in two Americans have doubts about the government’s account of 9/11, and after viewing video footage of World Trade Center Building 7’s collapse, 46% suspect that it was caused by a controlled demolition. Building 7, a 47-story skyscraper, collapsed into its own footprint late in the afternoon on 9/11.   

The poll was sponsored by ReThink911, a global public awareness campaign launched on September 1. The campaign includes a 54-foot billboard in Times Square and a variety of transit and outdoor advertising in 11 other cities, all posing the question, “Did you know a third tower fell on 9/11?

Among the poll’s findings:

  • 38% of Americans have some doubts about the official account of 9/11, 10% do not believe it at all, and 12% are unsure about it;
  • 46%, nearly one in two, are not aware that a third tower collapsed on 9/11. Of those who are aware of Building 7’s collapse, only 19% know the building’s name;
  • After seeing video footage of Building 7′s collapse:
    • 46% are sure or suspect it was caused by controlled demolition, compared to 28% who are sure or suspect fires caused it, and 27% who don’t know;
    • By a margin of nearly two to one, 41% support a new investigation of Building 7′s collapse, compared to 21% who oppose it.

30-Second Video Shown to 1,194 Survey Respondents:

“The poll shows quite clearly what we already knew. Most people who see Building 7’s collapse have trouble believing that fires brought it down,” said Richard Gage, a member of the American Institute of Architects and founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, the campaign’s major sponsor. “It simply doesn’t look like a natural building collapse, and that’s because all the columns have been removed at once to allow it to come down symmetrically in free-fall. The evidence of controlled demolition is overwhelming. As more and more people learn about Building 7, public demand for a new investigation grows. People want the truth.”

According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), normal office fires caused the failure of a single column, starting a chain reaction that brought Building 7 down. More than 2,000 architects and engineers have signed the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth petition that questions NIST’s explanation of the building’s collapse.

“Even the government’s own computer model disproves its theory. It looks nothing like the actual collapse,” said Tony Szamboti, a mechanical engineer from the Philadelphia area. “Not only that, they refuse to release the data that would allow us to verify their model. In the world of science, this is as bad as it gets. I’m glad most people can look at the collapse and see the obvious.”

The ReThink911 campaign calls for a new investigation into Building 7’s collapse, as well as the destruction of the Twin Towers. The YouGov poll and the ad campaign were financed with more than $225,000 in donations from thousands of supporters.

All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from YouGov Plc. Total sample size was 1194 adults. Fieldwork was undertaken between 27th – 29th August 2013. The survey was carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all US adults (aged 18+).

  1. THIS IS HOW MY LOCAL MSM DESCRIBES 9/11: Sept. 11, 2001, when airplanes were crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. A fourth plane was headed for Washington, DC, but crashed in Pennsylvania after its passengers overcame the terrorists.JUST ENOUGH TO COVER BUT NO MENTION OF WTC 7,

  2. for any reader who takes what an hour or two and carefully goes through the mountain of researched articles concerning the destroying of the twin tower incident, there is no doubt, no doubt, that the US Gov was directly or indirectly involved with knowledge and planning, of its forth coming then allowing it to happen and having legislation ready to go concerning the event. There by locking down the american population to what we have today……..Every since that day, on the same day each following year, this act of criminality, the worst such event in written history(considering all connected horror yet on going, from this event) is somehow memorialized for the supposed betterment of all the worlds population…….I believe the dam will some day break on Wash D C, exposing the truth……..I just don’t know when!!!! If the internet would have been there the day JFK was murdered all history would have been different than it is now…..
    Well, the internet is here………….and was 12 years ago too. Yes, its taken a while to gain traction….I imagine only more traction as time goes by and the dam finally breaks on DC………lets hope its sooner rather than later
