Despite widespread speculation that the shootings in Arizona on Saturday that killed six people and wounded 11 others, including a congresswoman who police say was the intended target was politically motivated, most Americans choose to view the tragedy as a random act of violence.

That according to a new Rasmussen survey, which finds that only 28 percent of adults polled believe that the shootings were the result of political anger in the country.

Fifty-eight percent of those polled say it was a random act of violence committed by an unstable person.
