In a recent poll conducted by DailyMail.com, it was revealed a significant portion of the American population believes in the existence of extraterrestrial life.
The poll, which surveyed 1,000 US voters, found more than 40% of respondents believe that aliens have visited Earth in the last half-century. This intriguing revelation underscores the growing interest and belief in the possibility of life beyond our planet.
The poll, conducted by J.L Partners from September 15 through 20, asked a series of questions related to unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and the government’s handling of such phenomena.
Participants ranged in age from 18 to over 65, providing a broad demographic perspective on these captivating topics.

Interestingly, the survey also revealed a lack of trust in the current administration’s handling of UFO-related information.
More than 40% of respondents believe the Biden administration is withholding information about extraterrestrial life. This sentiment was echoed across different demographics, with even Democrats expressing skepticism about the transparency of their own party’s administration.
In a hypothetical scenario where Earth is attacked by aliens, the poll asked respondents who they would feel safer under – former President Donald Trump or current President Joe Biden.
The results were telling, with 43% of respondents choosing Trump, while only 32% opted for Biden. This preference for Trump spanned across all ages, races, education levels, and political affiliations, indicating a broader trust in his leadership during potential extraterrestrial crises.
Former President Trump has previously spoken about UFOs during his presidency, stating in a podcast interview he had been briefed on the subject and always kept an open mind.
On the other hand, President Biden largely avoided the topic in interviews; although he did announce an interagency group earlier this year to investigate unidentified objects in US airspace.
Astronomers have discovered a "deep structure" buried on the moon. “Imagine taking a pile of metal five times larger than the Big Island of Hawaii and burying it underground” Most likely it’s from an asteroid, but whatever it is we should call it TMA-1. https://t.co/efwark2IRq pic.twitter.com/umwAo4qw3W

The poll’s findings come at a time when there is increased interest in UFOs, fueled by recent congressional hearings and a NASA investigation into unidentified craft flying in US skies.
US Customs and Border Patrol also released a series of videos showing unexplained aerial phenomena, further stoking public curiosity and concern.
The poll results highlight a growing belief in extraterrestrial life among Americans, coupled with a lack of trust in the current administration’s handling of UFO-related information.
