Poll Shows Large Percentage of Voters Have Strong Distrust for Opposing Side, Favor State Secessions

The Center for Politics at the University of Virginia conducted a poll finding telling results about how the American people feel in regard to policymaking. Primarily, many people want blue policies to remain in blue states and red policies to remain in red states; both of which should be separated.

“Roughly 4 in 10 (41%) of Biden and half (52%) of Trump voters at least somewhat agree that it’s time to split the country, favoring blue/red states seceding from the union.” The Center for Politics had partnered on the poll with Project Home Fire, an initiative dedicated to finding common ground in American politics.

The commonalities found in the poll are as follows:

Majorities — often large majorities — of both Biden and Trump voters express some form of distrust for voters, elected officials, and media sources they associate with the other side. A strong majority of Trump voters see no real difference between Democrats and socialists, and a majority of Biden voters at least somewhat agree that there is no real difference between Republicans and fascists.

Significant numbers of both Trump and Biden voters show a willingness to consider violating democratic tendencies and norms if needed to serve their priorities. Roughly 2 in 10 Trump and Biden voters strongly agree it would be better if a “President could take needed actions without being constrained by Congress or courts.”

Another common factor is 80% of both Trump and Biden voters view democracy as preferable to any non-democratic kind of government. “On the other hand, more than 6 in 10 Trump and Biden voters see America as less a representative democracy and more a system that is run by and rigged for the benefit of the wealthy” the poll reports.

“Overall, more than two-thirds support – and one-third strongly – emboldening and empowering strong leaders and taking the law into their own hands when it comes to dealing with people or groups they view as dangerous.” Unfortunately, that is likely to be the opposing political party.

    So basically both sides agree on most things. They have just allowed the government to divide them.

    Most Democrat voters are uninformed on political issues and vote against Republicans, and their policies.

    Most Republican voters are aware of Democrat ideologies, and vote against their policies.

    It has come down to an aggressive Marxist Democrat Party, versus a Republican Freedom Party.

    Give me a smaller Union of Free States, and the Democrats can have their States with Central Planning nightmares.

    The Free States of America, are seeking the promise and protection as spelled out in the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights, without a Federal authority.

    Unless Biden/Harris reverse course on policy, we will be in danger of another civil war. The only question is, where will the military stand.

      Once the Dem socialists succeed in weeding out Conservatives from the military, the military will then be on the side of the socialists.
