A new Rasmussen Poll from this past week says that nearly 1/3 of the country believes there will be Civil War here within the next five years:
Most voters fear that political violence is coming from opponents of the president’s policies, just as they did in the second year of Barack Obama’s presidency, and nearly one-in-three think a civil war is next.
Thirty-one percent (31%) of Likely U.S. Voters say it’s likely that the United States will experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years, with 11% who say it’s Very Likely. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% consider a second civil war unlikely, but that includes only 29% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Democrats (37%) are more fearful than Republicans (32%) and voters not affiliated with either major party (26%) that a second civil war is at hand.
But 59% of all voters are concerned that those opposed to President Trump’s policies will resort to violence, with 33% who are Very Concerned. This compares to 53% and 28% respectively in the spring of Obama’s second year in office. Thirty-seven percent (37%) don’t share that concern, including 16% who are Not At All Concerned.
Fifty-three percent (53%) are concerned that those critical of the media’s coverage of Trump will resort to violence, with 24% who are Very Concerned. Forty-two percent (42%) are not concerned about violence from media opponents, including 17% who are Not At All Concerned.
The more glaring fact thrown in there is that nearly 60% are concerned the feral left will resort to violence. The difference between this election cycle and Obama’s was the feral left has consistently demonstrated their violent tendencies, and the outward and very blatant calls for violence against Trump supporters is far greater than the reverse ever happened any time during Obama’s presidency.
Stock up and prepare folks. Prepare your families. This is one of the many reasons why we fight to preserve the second amendment. Hopefully this can end civilly but I worry more and more that this is no possible. The gap is becoming too wide to bridge. We can’t even agree on enforcing our own damn laws anymore. Given that we’re the ones stocking up and preparing ourselves for this, I like our chances.
