Not long ago, the idea of another American Civil War seemed outlandish…These days, the notion has not only gone mainstream, it seems to suddenly be everywhere…
…Last fall, the University of Virginia Center for Politics released a poll finding that a majority of people who had voted to reelect former President Donald Trump in 2020 now wanted their state to secede from the Union.
The UVA data also showed a stunning 41% of those who voted for Joe Biden in 2020 also said it might now be “time to split the country.”
The more one hears this particular drumbeat, the louder it becomes.
Do the respondents in all these polls fully realize what these terms mean or their answers imply? Possibly not. Talk is often cheap, and pollsters can ask a lot of provocative questions in pursuit of something noteworthy — or buzzworthy.
Or Tweet-worthy. RTFA. Decide for yourself is this clickbait – or is it time to start asking serious questions of the nutballs looking for a war?
