Over two-thirds of Republicans say they "more and more feel like a stranger" in their own country, believe the government is "corrupt and rigged against everyday people like me," and one-third were willing to tell a pollster "it may be necessary at some point soon for citizens to take up arms against the government," according to a new poll.
From The University of Chicago's Institute of Politics:
- A majority of Americans agree that the government is "corrupt and rigged against everyday people like me," including 73 percent of voters who describe themselves as a "strong Republican," 71 percent who called themselves "very conservative" and 68 percent of rural voters. A bare majority (51 percent) of voters who call themselves "very liberal" also agreed. Overall, two-thirds of Republican and Independent voters agree that the government is "corrupt and rigged" against them, while Democrats are evenly split.Another poll from UC Davis released last week found similar:
Half (50.1%) agreed that "in the next few years, there will be civil war in the United States." Among 6,768 respondents who considered violence to be at least sometimes justified to achieve 1 or more specific political objectives, 12.2% were willing to commit political violence themselves "to threaten or intimidate a person," 10.4% "to injure a person," and 7.1% "to kill a person."The future looks bright!
