Twenty-nine percent of registered voters think that an armed revolution might be necessary in the next few years in order to protect liberties, according to a Public Mind poll by Fairleigh Dickinson University.
The poll, which surveyed 863 registered voters and had a margin of error of +/-3.4, focused on both gun control and the possibility of a need for an armed revolution in the United States to protect liberty.
The survey asked whether respondents agreed, disagreed, neither agreed nor disagreed or did not know or refused to respond to the statement: "In the next few years, an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect our liberties"
Twenty-nine percent said they agreed, 47 percent said they disagreed, 18 percent said they neither agreed nor disagreed, 5 percent said they were unsure, and 1 percent refused to respond.
Results of the poll show that those who believe a revolution might be necessary differ greatly along party lines:
•18 percent of Democrats
•27 percent of Independents
•44 percent of Republicans
The poll found that 38 percent of Americans who believe a revolution might be necessary support additional gun control legislation compared to 62 percent of those who don't think an armed revolt will be needed.
Dan Cassino, a professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson and analyst for the poll, says:
"The differences in views of gun legislation are really a function of differences in what people believe guns are for. If you truly believe an armed revolution is possible in the near future, you need weapons and you're going to be wary about government efforts to take them away."
The poll was conducted nationally between April 22 and April 28, 2013
ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION WILL TIP THE SCALES. Enough is enough. Americans have been screwed out of employment for 5 years now while ILLEGALS ARE GETTING THE JOBS! Americans have to fight back. They left us no other choice.
It is that high because wingnuts like to talk tough and pretend they are going to do something when in reality they are just typical lazy Americans who like to whine but not really do anything.
Having lived through the Vietnam/Watergate era which was a time of great public discord, I seriously doubt the numbers ever approached what this poll is reporting. No wonder Janet Napolitano is #$%$ her jockey shorts and ordering billions of rounds of hollow point ammo.
I lived through Vietnam & Watergate and it's very possible that the public is finally getting fed up. ILLEGALS ARE STEALING ALL OUR JOBS OUT FROM UNDER US AND AMERICANS ARE BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST ON OUR OWN SOIL! People are being left no other choice but to take stronger actions to be heard.
No offense, but that poll is not surprising. Throw up's were stunned at the election results, their party still today struggling coming to terms with a new platform, in total disarray, finally deciding they love gays and want immigration, old white men in the party, unwilling to change, looking to the left, looking to the right. and cannot make a decision? What to do? I'll just sit here and laugh till they do.
