Poll: You will be stunned at how many Americans would support a coup

How is it that we are so fed up that we actually want to see tanks on the streets?  I will tell you how.  This administration has used the power of the pin to go around law and create its own.  Americans are tired of being stomped on and the constitution being ignored.

For many Americans, a coup in which the military seizes control of the federal government is starting to seem like a refreshing alternative to the existing administration, according to a new poll.

Conducted by YouGov, a new survey has found that 29 percent of Americans could imagine a scenario where they would support a military takeover in the United States. A total of 41 percent could not imagine supporting such an event. And so while the coup-supporters are still decidedly in the minority, the fact that the option polls so highly is remarkable. This translates to 70 million Americans who are potentially ready to support a coup.

The survey results revealed a clear political divide. Republicans were more than twice as likely to rate a potential coup more highly than Democrats, with the two parties polling 43 percent and 20 percent, respectively.

Part of the suspected reason for fondness towards a U.S. coup is that military officers consistently garner more public support than politicians. From the same survey, 70 percent of respondents think that officers want what’s best for America, compared to just 12 percent who think the same of members of Congress—a major disparity. In fact, 71 percent of respondents believe that members of Congress only want what’s best for themselves. Local politicians don’t fare much better at 59 percent.

While federal civil servants don’t perform as poorly as local politicians, 37 percent believe that they want what’s best for themselves, and only 22 percent think that civil servants have the best interests of the country at heart.

Police officers, in comparison, are viewed similarly to the military, though not quite as positively. A total of 55 percent of respondents think police officers want the best for the country, with 24 percent holding that these officers just want what’s good for them.

I would hate to see tanks on the streets.  A coup however would actually mean a civil war in this country.  Thank God the election is only just over a year away.  Instead of tanks we can use the ballot box to make the changes we need.
