(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – While Joe Biden himself has hollowly called for “unity” in the wake of the most divisive election cycle in our nation’s history that is rife with allegations of fraud to the point that nearly half of Republican voters believe it was rigged, it appears his supporters have a much more cynical perspective.
Of course, Biden also followed up his call for “unity” by posting a picture of his dogs tearing apart a Trump toy, which is probably far more indicative of how dedicated to said “unity” he will be as commander-in-chief.
Meanwhile, 40% of his supporters say they believe that the nation “may likely be headed to a civil war or other significant upheaval” according to a new poll.
The survey was conducted by the Frontier Center’s Ear to the Ground and reported by Paul Bedard in his column, “Washington Secrets” which is published in the Washington Examiner.
It showed that 31% of Biden supporters do not believe our country is headed for civil war or upheaval, while 71% of Trump supporters conversely believe such an event is likely.
Only 8% of Trump supporters said it was not.
Out of Biden supporters, 29% said they were unsure, while 20% of Trump supporters also weren’t certain.
“The controversy over the disputed election outcome is crystallizing the view that a new Civil War is coming. Trump supporters view the election not as the end point, now, but as a phase line in a war that has already begun,” Anne Sorock Segal of the Frontier Center told Bedard, as reported by WND.
Segal also questioned respondents’ perspectives on who legitimately won the election.
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
On Friday, Trump said on Twitter that there were 75 million “great American Patriots” who voted for him who “will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future.”
“Soul searching and lecturing following the election and Wednesday’s Capitol protests and riots have done nothing to tamp down GOP outrage,” Bedard noted.
He also pointed to previous polling indicating this sentiment has been growing over the course of the last year and weeks.
“Several other polls throughout the election showed rising concern of a potential civil war. This weeks’ protests and riots on Capitol Hill and other state capitals suggest the polling is pretty accurate,” he wrote.
