On Wednesday, July 26th an Intelligence Official confirmed the US Government is in possession of an alien space craft and non-human “biologics.” Oddly, Iowans don’t seem to care.

According to the AP, “Retired Maj. David Grusch’s highly anticipated testimony before a House Oversight subcommittee was Congress’ latest foray into the world of UAPs — or ‘unidentified aerial phenomena,’ which is the official term the U.S. government uses instead of UFOs.” The Pentagon is denying the claims.

But do Iowans buy it? To find out, host Justin Brady hit the streets to ask Iowans “do you believe aliens exist?” Their responses surprised us. 

It turns out, even before the intelligence report, most Iowans do believe intelligent life exists beyond our planet. But interestingly, the official report didn’t change anyone minds. Perhaps the tepid response tells us more about trust in government officials that the existence aliens.

In one case, a couple believed it to be a distraction, and one man said he has believed aliens exist for some time, but after the official report, he finds himself doubting their existence more than before.

So, do Iowans believe intelligent life on another planet exists? Yes and no, but where they seem to agree is that none has been found in Congress.
