Poll: ‘Civil War’ expectations reach new high, 71% of Trump voters. By Paul Bedard.

According to a new survey, a record high 71% of President Trump’s supporters believe the country is headed toward civil war. …

40% of President-elect Joe Biden’s supporters agree. …

Anne Sorock Segal [from the Frontier Center’s Ear to the Ground, who conducted the poll] told us, “… Trump supporters view the election not as end point, now, but as a phase line in a war that has already begun.” …

When asked, “Who won the election technically?” the responses were:

  • If you believe Civil War coming: 17% Biden won, 81% Trump won, 3% unsure
  • If you believe no Civil War coming: 55% Biden, 25% Trump, 14% unsure
  • Unsure on Civil War: 40% Biden, 48% Trump, 12% unsure

China would love that. There are two things that would help address this: Voting reform akin to what was done in Florida after 2000, and an end to expressions of open contempt for half the nation from political and media leaders. Neither, alas, is likely.
