According to a new poll from the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics, more than one in four Americans have so much disdain for the government that they believe it may be necessary “at some point soon for citizens to take up arms against the government," the Washington Times reported, citing the results.
The poll came out just ahead of Independence Day, and it follows a Fox News survey that found a historically low number of Americans feel "patriotic" under the current far-left regime which has engaged in punishing political warfare against conservative, Donald Trump-supporting citizens.
The University of Chicago survey found that 28 percent thought armed rebellion may become necessary; 33 percent -- one-in-three Republicans -- thought so.
The Times adds:
A majority of Americans also said the government is “corrupt and rigged against everyday people like me,” including two-thirds of Republicans and independents, and about half of Democrats.
The survey also comes amid televised congressional hearings by the House committee investigating last year’s attack on the U.S. Capitol.
The University of Chicago said the poll “reveals not only the growing divides we have witnessed in recent years but strong sentiments that the majority of media outlets contribute to these divisions by intentionally misleading their audiences to promote a political point of view.”
American patriotism has taken a huge hit too during Biden's short presidency.
"National pride is down, with majorities of Republicans and independents and nearly half of Democrats feeling dissatisfied with their country," Fox News reported, citing its recent survey.
"The poll, released Thursday, asks registered voters, 'are you proud of the country today,' to which just 39% say 'yes.' That is down 12 points from June 2017 (the last time the question was asked) and 30 points since June 2011," the network reported, adding that patriotism has steadily slipped since the second most-divisive regime in modern history, that of Barack Obama.
"While the question has only been asked four times, this marks the first time a majority feels disappointed in the country: 56% aren’t proud, up from 45% in 2017 and 28% in 2011," Fox News noted further.
Formerly "no proud" Dems are currently on the fence, but Republicans and Independents have substantially reversed their views -- and why wouldn't they? Before Biden took office, the FBI was setting up Trump supporters and voters in false flag incidents including the fake 'kidnapping' of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and by planting agents and provocateurs in crowds while inciting a riot at the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6.
Since Biden came into power, his 'Justice' Department has targeted conservative and independent parents who show up at school board meetings to protest sexually inappropriate and divisive, racist curriculum as "domestic terrorists." And the Biden DOJ has treated protesters who merely trespassed in the Capitol on that day like they are top-shelf domestic terrorists, keeping dozens locked up for nearly 18 months and counting, without bail and without scheduling their trials.
But here is why the 'rebellion' statistic is more than just significant.
During the American Revolution, only about 10 percent of the population took an active or semi-active role in opposing or fighting the British. Only around 3 percent (the III Percenters) took active roles in the fighting.
Here's another similarity: At the time, the British Empire was considered the most powerful force on the planet, even more so than the French, and certainly the Spanish, empires of the day. The United States military is the most powerful today.
And the Russian military is powerful, but that hasn't stopped Ukrainians from resisting with all they have.
If the Biden regime doesn't want an armed rebellion on its hands, or Democrats in general, it would behoove them to start changing policies immediately and end their targeting of political opponents.
But they won't because that's what they are pushing for: An armed rebellion they think they can win.
