Threatening the president's life is a crime. The Secret Service said it regularly investigates threatening comments or incidents involving disturbing words or images of the chief executive.
But officials also said that tasteless comments or idle bluster are probably not enough to trigger legal action. The agency seeks to determine whether the person who made the threats had some intent to carry them out or to otherwise incite violence against the president.
Facebook members had their own quick response Monday. A second poll was launched asking whether the creator of the first poll should be arrested.
