84 percent of Americans say they accept Donald Trump as their president, including three fourths of Hillary supporters

Election results

(NaturalNews) If you wanted more evidence that the protests continuing against President-elect Donald J. Trump in some U.S. cities are being staged by a small minority of Americans, as well as no small amount of paid protestors, the Gallup polling firm has just provided it.

Town Hall is reporting that a commanding 84 percent of American voters said they accept the fact that Trump beat Democratic rival Hillary Clinton fair and square, and that come Jan. 20, 2017, he will become the nation's next president, legitimately.

"The 2016 election is over – and Donald J. Trump is the winner. Period," writes Matt Vespa. "There are no electoral irregularities. No Russian hacking occurred. And no – signing a petition to get electors to cast their ballots for Clinton isn't going to happen."

He went on to note that most of the continuing protests are occurring in some of the most liberal parts of the country – Portland, Ore., Baltimore, Los Angeles, the San Francisco bay area and Philadelphia, to name just a few.

More support Trump than did Bush during his controversial 2000 win

But overall, more than eight in 10 Americans accept the results as-is, according to the poll, which was conducted Nov. 9, the day following the election. As Gallup noted, that includes more than three-quarters (76 percent) of Clinton voters.

Gallup noted that Trump's victory spurred some protesting around the country, with some people claiming that Trump is "not my president." The protestors' sentiments are shared by about one in six Americans, Gallup noted, as well as about 25 percent (one in four) of Clinton's voters.

The polling firm asked the same question about President-elect George W. Bush in December 2000, shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court declared him the winner based on the close Florida vote, finding that 83 percent of Americans accepted Bush as the president, or about the same number as those who accept Trump.

Supporters of Bush's opponent, Vice President Al Gore, were less likely (68 percent) than Clinton voters today to accept the president-elect as legitimate. Then, as now, others say that the Electoral College system should be done away with because Clinton is, so far, winning the popular vote – though that may not stand.

That said, Trump's Electoral College tally is far more decisive than Bush's was in his first win, and is not dependent on favorable legal rulings in order to stand.

Revolution planning?

Still, though in the distinct minority, Left-wing opponents of Trump's victory are not planning on going quietly into the night. They don't care what the vast majority of the country thinks about Trump's legitimacy.

As we reported recently, there is a movement afoot – begun on social media – to get as many people as possible to Washington, D.C., on Inauguration Day, quite possibly to kick off a socialist/Marxist revolution.

In addition to the social media push to get people to disrupt Trump's inauguration, top Democratic leaders in the House and Senate have been meeting with Left-wing billionaires like George Soros who fund groups that have been hiring people for more than a year to protest Trump's campaign events. The planning sessions are aimed at devising strategies to oppose Trump at every opportunity moving forward. Specifically, they want to stop the Trump administration from reversing any of their and President Obama's leftist agendas and legislation, like Obamacare (which is tanking miserably as premiums and out-of-pocket expenses skyrocket).

But other analysts think there might be something more sinister behind all of this planning than just political opposition.

In addition to the protests there are also calls for national strikes and picketing of businesses to interrupt commerce and tank the economy, thereby triggering mass revolt.
