NUCLEAR Option – Dems Take It To The NEXT LEVEL

( – According to a new survey from the University of Chicago, public support for using violence for political gain increased in the first six months of 2023, the UK Guardian reported.

The survey found that while justifying the use of violence for political gain has increased throughout the political spectrum, the sharpest rise was seen among Democratic voters, who are 2.5 times more likely to support violence. University of Chicago political scientist Robert Pape, the author of the survey, suggests that the increase in support for the use of violence among Democrats coincides with Republicans gaining the majority in the House.

Among all Americans, support for using violence increased by 8 points, from 9 percent in January to 17 percent in June. Among Democrats, support for violence increased by 9 points, from 7 percent in January to 16 percent in June. Among Republicans, support for using violence increased by 6 points, while among Independents, it increased by 8 points.

According to Pape, the federal indictment against Donald Trump radicalized support for the use of violence among Republicans, while the increased support among Democrats was fueled by the abortion debate.

The survey also found that 68 percent of the people who believe violence is justified to restore Donald Trump to the White House believe that the 2020 election was “stolen.” Another 62 percent believe that the investigations and indictments against Trump are designed to hurt his chances in the 2024 election. Approximately 7 percent believe it may be necessary to use violence to restore Trump to the presidency in 2024.

The survey also found that Trump’s favorability among Republicans is decreasing.

More respondents view Donald Trump as a threat (52 percent) than Joe Biden (33 percent).

However, Pape told the Guardian that a more radicalized public isn’t in itself enough to fuel actual violence. Instead, Pape described the current climate as “kindling.” Pape added that all it might take to “light the fire” is for Donald Trump to incite his supporters in a speech in the same way he did on January 6, 2021.
