Orthodox Slumlord was just denying this in the comments.
“Half of Americans expect to see a second U.S. civil war within years and nearly a fifth say they could one day be toting guns at a political face-off themselves, according to an alarming new study about the nation’s deepening divisions.
Researchers at University of California, Davis uncovered worrying levels of ‘alienation’, ‘mistrust’ and a growing tendency to turn to violence in their recently-conducted survey of 8,620 adults across the country. …
More than two-thirds of respondents said they saw a ‘serious threat to our democracy’ and 50.1 percent agreed with the statement that ‘in the next few years, there will be civil war in the U.S.’
Once again, it is White people who are being replaced in the electorate by non-White immigrants for political reasons and the people who believe the Great Replacement is happening clearly understand this.
“More than 40 percent said having a ‘strong leader’ was more important than democracy and that ‘native-born white people are being replaced by immigrants’ — a racist belief known as the ‘great replacement theory’.
Researchers also uncovered a growing inclination to settle political rows with violence. …”
They are angry enough about it to say this in the poll. Conservatives glorified Kyle Rittenhouse for blowing away that Antifa.
“Nearly a fifth of respondents said it was likely they would be ‘armed with a gun’ at a political flash point in the coming years, while 4 percent said it was likely they would ‘shoot someone with a gun’.
Garen Wintemute, a university public health expert who warns of growing gun ownership rates and led the study, said his findings were ‘pretty grim’ and ‘exceeded our worst expectations’. …”
The SPLC recently conducted its own poll which also showed that I was right about this.
“A similar study by Tulchin Research and the Southern Poverty Law Center last month found that 44 percent of Americans said the U.S. was headed toward another civil war.
A YouGov survey last week highlighted growing calls for a break-up of the U.S. …”
The SPLC poll found that the Great Replacement is starting to become something like the conventional wisdom among conservative normies.
“Nearly 7 in 10 Republicans surveyed agree to at least some extent that demographic changes in the United States are deliberately driven by liberal and progressive politicians attempting to gain political power by “replacing more conservative white voters.”
Good luck on keeping a lid on “extremism.”
“Almost half of self-identified Republicans – 47% – responded that Census projections estimating “white people will become a minority” in roughly 25 years are either “somewhat negative” or “very negative” for the country. Only 28% or Republicans polled said the changes were “somewhat positive” or “very positive.”
And 67% of Republicans polled “believe the country’s demographic changes are being orchestrated by ‘liberal leaders actively trying to leverage political power by replacing more conservative white voters.’”
More findings from this study:
“Almost 23% agreed somewhat, strongly or very strongly with this statement: “The government, media and financial worlds in the U.S. are controlled by a group of Satan-worshiping pedophiles who run a global child sex trafficking operation.”
Here is the link to the actual study:
“Four items explored beliefs on race and “great replacement” thinking (Table 3). While 39.0% of respondents agreed strongly or very strongly that “white people benefit from advantages in society that Black people do not have,” 27.1% agreed strongly or very strongly that “discrimination against whites is as big a problem as discrimination against Blacks and other minorities.”
Nearly 1 in 5 (18.6%) disagreed with the statement that “having more Black Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans is good for the country,” and 41.2% agreed—16.2% agreed strongly or very strongly—with the proposition that “in America, native-born white people are being replaced by immigrants.”
Another 4 items addressed the central elements of QAnon mythology and other beliefs (Table 4). More than 1 in 5 respondents (22.7%) endorsed the statement, with 9% agreeing strongly or very strongly, that US institutions are “controlled by a group of Satan-worshipping pedophiles” who traffic children for sex.
Nearly 30% (29.7%) agreed (10.1% strongly or very strongly) that “a storm coming soon” will “sweep away the elites in power and restore the rightful leaders.” More than 2 in 5 (43.4%) agreed (19.3% strongly or very strongly) that “we are living in what the Bible calls ‘the end times.’
