The fears are pretty equal among all party and non party people polled.
There are fools with torches on the right and morons with Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters on the left, and there are a million other divisions in between in America. A Rasmussen poll has found that 31 percent of the U.S. population believes that another Civil War looms, predicting that democrat hate may lead to another dark time in America.
It is not all the fault of President Donald Trump, either, though the mainstream media would love to push that narrative. Rasmussen has found that the worry of “political violence” and fear of conflict which may be “coming from opponents of the president’s policies” are the same as when President Barack Obama was at this point his presidency, one in three.
Democrats are pushing for it a bit harder for this unrest, just as they did during the Civil Rights era and during the last Civil War. They were on the wrong side of history both times, a fact that they gloss over today, but historically, democrats fought the federal government from doing the right thing.
That high number thinks that this Civil War will happen within only the next half-decade, too. Only 11 percent said that is was “very unlikely,” also a warning for those willing to listen.
The telephone poll also discovered that “59% consider a second civil war unlikely, but that includes only 29% who say it’s Not At All Likely.” Rasmussen even shows the wording of the questions, so the facts speak for themselves.
There is 37 percent of Democrats who fear it, and since terrorist groups like ANTIFA are leftist, they would know and have good reason to worry about it. Likewise, Maxine Waters vocally stirred up violence over the past week.
Likewise, the G.O.P. who suffered the shooting of a Congressman only last year worries about it, too, with 32 percent voicing the concern. Even 26 percent of voters affiliated with no party think that the Civil War looms, so this is not a party issue by any means.
The most alarming part of the poll is that “59% of all voters are concerned that those opposed to President Trump’s policies will resort to violence, with 33% who are Very Concerned.” It was also revealed that “Forty-four percent (44%) of blacks think a second civil war is likely in the next five years, a view shared by 28% of whites and 36% of other minority voters.”
Other numbers show that 55 percent of the population blames Mr. Trump for his bad relationship with the media, which is strange since the president is only hated because he proves how false and biased they are.
There are other numbers of interest are in the study and it makes for an interesting read, but the takeaway is that the people are far too divided. That in and of itself is not that strange, as history proves. However, one of the things that made the United States of America work so well was the fact that no one was silenced. Everyone was and is free to try and get as many people won over to their point of view so that change is made in the direction which they desire.
If someone is going to be attacked or if they are in danger for speaking, that is counter to the whole purpose of the Constitution. The founding document was made to prevent the need for violence.
Then again, there is no need for it. It is a want, something desired by far too many people and if it doesn’t stop, if the precepts of the Constitution are not obeyed, it may be a very grim time to be an American within the next five years.
