A recent survey released on Thursday by Rasmussen Reports revealed the majority of “likely voters” believe the impeachment and removal of President Donald Trump would “lead to violence.”

But what is even more disturbing is that an even more substantial majority believe anti-Trump leftists will “resort to violence.”

The survey was conducted between November 18-19, which interviewed 1,000 “likely voters.”

The survey asked respondents:

“How concerned are you that President Trump’s impeachment and removal from office will lead to violence?”

53% of those respondents indicated that they are concerned, while 24% are “very concerned," according to Rasmussen reports.

The survey also asked:

“How concerned are you that those opposed to President Trump’s policies will resort to violence?”

Of those respondents, 59% said they are concerned, while 34% said they are “very concerned.”

But Democrats are seemingly unnerved by opposition violence.

“While 40% of Democrats are very concerned that those opposed to Trump’s policies will resort to violence, just 18% feel that way about his supporters if the president is removed from office,” Rasmussen reported.

On the subject of the likelihood of a new “civil war” happening in “the next five years," 31% of respondents said it was likely, while 9% said it was “very likely.”

Politically-motivated violence and aggression seem to be at the forefront of America’s collective consciousness.

85% of respondents believe that the “nature of political debate … has become more negative in recent years," according to a Pew Research survey. 

According to a survey conducted by McLaughlin & Associates on “800 full-time undergraduates” revealed that a large number of students believe that violence is justified as a preventative measure against “hate speech.”

The survey asked students if they agreed or disagreed with the following statement:

“If someone is using hate speech or making racially charged comments, physical violence can be justified to prevent this person from espousing their hateful views.”

33% said that they “agree” with the statement, according to WS Journal.

Assistant professor of political communication at Louisiana State University, Nathan Kalmoe, in October tweeted out some disturbing information from a YouGov survey:

In a 2019 YouGov survey w/ @LilyMasonPhD, 70% of Reps & 56% of Dems saw the other party as “a serious threat to the United States & its people.”

55% of Reps & 44% of Dems said the other party is “not just worse for politics—they are downright evil.” 34% of Reps & 27% of Dems said the other party “lack the traits to be considered fully human—they behave like animals.”

A worrying percentage of respondents indicated in favor of “political violence,” according to Kalmoe.

The survey asked:

“How much do you feel it is justified for [own party] to use violence in advancing their political goals these days?”

87.3% of the respondents said, “not at all."

5.2% said “a moderate amount.”

4.7% said “a little."

1.5% said, “a great deal."

1.3% said, “a lot.”

This means out of the l respondents, 12.7% were at least a little bit comfortable with the idea of using violence as a tool of political power.
