(Newser) – The Secret Service is looking into a Facebook poll that asked users to weigh in on whether the president should be killed. “We are taking the appropriate investigative steps,” said a rep for the agency. The poll, which has already been taken down, offered four possible answers to the question "should obama be killed?": “yes,” “no,” “maybe,” and, perhaps most tellingly, “If he cuts my health care,” Plum Line reports.
