Cenk Uygur | (The Young Turks Video Report) | – –
“New poll out from YouGov that is even more concerning than some of the other crazy polls we’ve covered recently. How many people in this country would be in favor of a military coup? The answer may surprise you… Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down…
“29% of Americans could imagine a situation in which they would support the military seizing control of the federal government, while 41% could not imagine such a situation.
Republicans (43%) are more than twice as likely as Democrats (20%) to say that they could conceive of a situation in which they would support a military coup in the United States. Independents tend to say that they could not (38%) rather than could (29%) imagine supporting a coup.”
