Poll: Majority of Americans, Including Independents, Found Biden’s Primetime Speech ‘Dangerous’
Yikes: 62.4% of those who belong to another party or don’t belong to a party disapproved of Biden’s speech.
A poll conducted by the Convection of States Action and The Trafalgar Group found that most Americans considered President Joe Biden’s primetime speech “dangerous.” They also believe Biden “intended to create conflict among Americans.”
The companies asked the voters, “What is your opinion of President Biden’s recent primetime address to the nation in which he accused his political opponents of representing ‘an extremism that threatens the very foundation of our republic’?”
The voters chose from three statements:
- It represents a dangerous escalation in rhetoric and is designed to inside conflict among Americans.
- It is acceptable campaign messaging that is to be expected in an election year.
- Not sure.
The critical stat belongs to those who don’t identify with any party because Democrats approved the speech while Republicans did not like it.
62.4% of those polled who belong to no party or identify with another party considered Biden’s speech “dangerous.”
Overall, though, 56.8% of those polled found Biden’s speech a “dangerous escalation in rhetoric.”
89.1% of the Republicans agreed with the statement. Only 4.7% agreed with it.
70.8% of the Democrats found Biden’s speech acceptable, but 18.7% did not like it. It seems the Republicans are more united than the media and the left want us to think, while Democrats have cracks in their foundation.
I know most Democrats agreed with Biden’s speech but still. Only 5% of the Republicans liked it while almost 20% of the Democrats did not. That’s quite a difference, you know?
Maybe I’m overthinking it because the groups polled about 4% more Democrats than Republicans.
The companies reached out to 1,084 likely general election voters. 39.3% identified themselves as Democrats, 35.6% Republicans, and 25.1% non-partisan/other.
Mark Meckler, President of the Convection of States, said in a press release:
“These numbers reveal that most voters were sickened and deeply disturbed by what they saw last week. When you couple this finding with previous polling we did indicating a majority of voters also hold President Biden responsible for America’s divisions—it’s clear that the man who promised to unite the nation has become the most divisive President in American history. When voters tell you they think that the prepared remarks of a sitting President of the United States is a dangerous escalation and was designed to incite conflict, we are living in terrifying times. Perhaps even more terrifying is the fact that a huge majority of Democrats think this was just a routine, election year stump speech. This is the tyranny the founders of America foresaw, and it’s why they included an emergency provision in Article V that empowers the states to reign in an out-of-control federal government. A Convention of States needs to happen and urgently.”
Biden turned off a lot of Americans with that awful speech. I thought Biden wanted to heal the rift in America. He also promised the adults returned to the White House.
I’m not a MAGA or Trump voter. I don’t even like Trump and am beyond tired of him. Yet I find Biden a disgusting little man who is threatened by anyone who disagrees with him. He insists his rhetoric isn’t about all “Trumpies” (his word, not mine), but we all know he means anyone, even leftists, who do not jump on his wagon. So gross.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Polls almost always oversample Dems….it’s known and baked in to their M.O.
More like M. P. Modus Propagandi.
So… where are the Republicans defending their constituantes toof and nail from the democrat attack? I must of missed it. The democrats raise Holy Heck defending their voters. The Republicans run away and hide in some DC back alley and tremble. It seems like they are trying to throw the mid term elections to the democrats so they can get the smaller share of the Loot without lifting a finger.
They aren’t trembling…they simply do not care.
They know voting is rigged right where it needs to be.
You missed it! Swish! Swish! Swish! —Z—And it’s over.
Non Democrats are perhaps trying not to give our Democrat overlords a reason to arrest them for the crime of Wrongthink.
Republicans are wimps, I will never use Ty as a Republican
They don’t EVER protect their voters or our core values
You would think that at some point the Biden apologists would just puke.
Last week Trump was getting tried for Treason because he had nuclear launch codes. This week the White House ordered the raid by the FBI that took 40 years worth of medical and tax records.
Clearly stupid people have strong stomachs.
Ms. Chastain: I think your dislike of President Trump is sad. I did not vote for him ( or anyone else) in 2016, but then I was floored by how closely his policies aligned with the Right, and how well they played out. By 2020, I was ready to walk on broken glass to vote for him. Your dislike of him may be a consequence of how he reacted to the false and malicious accusation of being a Russian agent, and the persecution of his supporters were persecuted by the FBI as well as how he had been duped early on to appoint various people antagonistic to him, e.g., the weasel Rod Rosenstein. Then of course there was that viscious, malicious viper who became Speaker, and her minions Schifhead and nattering Nadler who knew there was no there there, but managed to bring bills of impeachment to the Senate, as well as l’affaire Vindman who was sucking his thumb because the President had a mind of his own. Meanwhile the corruptocrat Brandon and his drug addled son were being protected by the Maoist State Media. After a while, you would blow a gasket too.
I think you seriously need to rethink your attitude towards President Trump. At the end of the day, in Nov. 2024, if it comes to Trump and any DemoncRat out there, how would you vote?
I don’t think I could be Trump’s friend. I could definitely play golf with him, that would be an entertaining day. But I don’t vote for Best Friend. I vote for president. I don’t understand why personality gets in the way of effectiveness in this case. I think it’s easy to make an exception for him. Very easy. If he were in any other aspect of your life, I perfectly understand if people don’t want him involved.
But with what’s at stake, knowing that our side for the most part doesn’t give a shit about basically anything, I think it’s reprehensible to not support him at the poll. After that, he’s on his own. I don’t feel the need to defend him ever. I didn’t support him in the primary, I voted for Cruz. But I voted for Trump in 2016, and that’s where my responsibility for him ends. In 2020 I looked back and said – did Trump do enough for my vote again? Yes.
Not sure why this is so hand-wringing for some people.
For a person of faith, it’s easy to conflate secular with religious leadership, desiring a president who in character is more of a Mike Huckabee type. Often evangelicals hope for a president to “usher in” a spiritual revival and repentance for sinful America. For the person of faith, who values charity, humility, etc., the personality and morality of DT is odious. I too did not vote in 2016 – so turned off I was by the process and last 2 candidates standing. Hillary made me want to vomit. About Trump I thought to myself sarcastically “who better to bankrupt America”.
Boy was I wrong.
When I went to the poll in 2020, my attitude was to shove Trump so far up deep state’s ass they’d never dislodge him.
Realistically for me, I hope to live a life worthy of a “well done good and faithful son” when I meet the Lord. I understand the Bible to tell the simple story of God and man, where God said to a people He wanted for His own: “if you’ll be my people, I’ll be your God and take care of you”. The people said “um, no. Just give us a king like everyone else”. God warned “kings suck”. We said “so be it”. And here we are, stuck choosing between the lesser of 2 evils. At least, that’s according to the MrE ™ version.
From my little knothole, all forms of human government suck, because it seems like all of them are punitive. Make a shitload of laws and rules and punish people one way or another for infractions. The way of God however is self-sacrificial and reward-based – what is in my way of thinking a kind, gentle and loving way to live.
Given the choices, and what I know now after 4 years of Trump and the shitheads in charge now, I’d crawl over hot coals to vote for him in 2024. How do I justify that as a believer given his temperament, character, etc.? I recognize that Trump was a kind of Cyrus archetype, with a heart for people of *american* faith and a God-appointed advocate of freedom and rebuilding our nation according to the vision of the founders.
MrE – well said, and I see you have made the same journey I have. Thank you.
A lot of voters are “beyond tired” of Trump.
If the election in November is going to be all about Trump, then we lose.
But if it’s about the economy, crime, the border, energy, and education, then we win.
That’s why the democrats don’t want to talk about the issues. They only want to talk about Trump, Trump, and Trump.
I’m not “beyond tired” of him, but I think he polls poorly which is your point.
It’s unfortunate how well the sick games of the left have worked on the American people. I also think it’s unfortunate that Trump allowed himself to be manipulated a good bit by that and by backstabbers in the GOP, but I’m not sure he had many options.
Trump wouldn’t poll poorly if we didn’t have 6 years of unceasing anti-Trump propaganda.
I’ll tell you what most voters are beyond – they’re beyond the stupid games that are played in DC by both sides. They’re beyond pols who, once they get elected, forget all about their constituents and focus instead on lining their own pockets. They’re beyond getting screwed over by CONgress day in and day out. It doesn’t matter who gets elected – meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
But Trump was different. That he wasn’t going to play their “screw the people again and again” games is obvious by the constant squealing by CONgress, the media, Hollywood, etc like stuck pigs we heard for four straight years while he was president. Even after their guy stole the election, they are still butthurt over Trump and can’t leave him alone. It really is a witch hunt, and they won’t be satisfied until they burn him at the stake. After that, they’ll set their guns on us, as per Biden’s wet dream speech.
Voters are beyond these disgusting games. TPTB do not realize they are playing with fire.
Given the Biden failed presidency, President Trump and the issues you mentioned are not mutually exclusive by any means.
It’s really not hard to contrast what things were like with Trump in office, (ie: life was much better by ever measureable dimension) compared to the dementia-ridden, retarded pedophile that’s there now who has managed to make life worse in every measurable way, willfully in most cases. I don’t give a shit what a bunch of communist “journalists” want to whine about because they have been proven wrong at practically every turn.
Not being a Trump voter is somewhat understandable even if it denies the obvious fact that the only other choice was and seemingly will be a Clinton or a Biden.
Not being a MAGA voter is harder to justify. It is simply mainstream conservative policy.
I voted libertarian. I make it known I’m a libertarian, not a conservative.
I voted libertarian almost all my life… until Trump. Libertarians think the southern invasion is just peachy, it’s in their platform. I don’t. Galt’s Gulch needed two features to work: a perfect defensive cloak, and a citizenry unanimously sworn to secrecy, a tacit admission that libertarian societies don’t work if you just let nonlibertarians waltz in. America has neither and never will. (And neither would Galt’s Gulch once they bred a new generation, because stupid rebellious kids.)
I get it. I would love a viable libertarian party, but we don’t offer credible candidates at the lower levels to build up a bench for Federal or Statewide offices. Gary Johnson aside how many Libertarian have held a Statewide or Federal elected office in the last two decades? That’s why I became a r with libertarian leanings.
I wouldn’t let him date my Daughter but DJT has displayed a good deal of libertarian tendencies.
Less regulation on business and individuals? Check
Reform the tax code to make it more fair? Check
End foreign military adventurism? Check
Rein in the federal administrative state? Check
Federal sentencing reform? Check
Those are all libertarian polices.
IMO, the libertarians make a mistake in not aligning with the tea party voters. Libertarians tend to back policies that benefit wall street v main street because they confuse the stock market with the economy. Libertarians might be better served by being willing to take yes for answer on some of their positions when the r incorporate their ideas.
I’m not sure I can see the difference between the two other than the label.
The primary question is: who would get you closer to libertarian ideals, Trump or Biden?
There’s no such thing as libertarian, there’s only liberaltarian.
Liberaltarians are for legalized drugs of all kinds, legalized prostitution of all kinds, open borders, no police = basically no government intervention at all anywhere.
At least that’s the way it works out with election results whenever liberaltarians vote, i.e., the liberal wins the election. IMO.
Not actually true. Libertarians believe government is always the problem and the solution is to reduce the size and function of government.
I.E. on the transgenderism issue libertarianism would say the RINO governors who back transing the kids are right no government allowed and Ron DeSantis is a statist.
This goes across the board for every issue to. Wanting smaller government just means leftist institutions will run more and more things without any public accountability or regulation.
Libertarians would only vote for a conservative candidate if you held a gun to their head and even then they would try to get out of it. They are not a Republican vote.
Libertarians believe in maximum individual liberty for consenting adults. No real libertarian is in favor of children making adult decisions.
Libertarians also embrace Federalism because it limits the power of a distant Federal govt in favor of State and local control which is far more accessible and responsive to individual Citizens.
Libertarians believe in less govt power and greater individual liberty. That’s a big part of the modern populist right agenda aka tea party aka MAGA.
I really can’t for the life of me figure out how you could possibly see Ron DeSantis and not think “enemy #1” in that case.
I support DeSantis because on every issue he does the opposite of what Libertarianism means.
For example can a company force its employees to take CRT/treat people differently on race.
Libertarianism=Absolutely it is a private company.
Ron DeSantis-Absolutely not the workers have rights to.
Or can a private school teach white people they are racists-Libertarianism-Absolutely
Ron DeSantis-He literally had a law passed against that to.
I could go on but ultimately government is one of many power centers and it is literally the only power center a conservative actually has a say in; being libertarian is just a surrender today.
People sleep peaceably in their beds because rough men stand ready to do violence on those who would do harm.
Trump certainly seems rough.
BTW, I laughed at Trump in 2015 as I thought he would never get that far.
I didn’t expect much after the joy of a Hunter Renfrow touchdown and subsequent championship, but I was as surprised at the ease in which Trump operated. He did a great job, and the McDonald’s dinner at the White House was 100 % MAGA. I’d eat a Big Mac with him before he kicked me out!
Off that pick play in the end zone?
Seems like Uncle Joe’s gonna get those “Hated it” numbers up, whatever it takes.
It’s good to have goals.
“A Convention of States needs to happen and urgently.” ~ Mark Meckler
If TPTB won’t obey the Constitution as it currently stands, what makes you think they’ll obey a rewritten one??
A clarification and limitation on the commerce clause would serve to check 2/3+ of the administrative state. That’s what the d/prog and their allies in the federal bureaucracy fear coming out of a convention.
Do we have 38 states to do that? I do not think we do. If we had 38 states we would have a permanent lock on the senate and presidency right now a convention of the states that actually manages anything is a pipe dream and even if it wasn’t our primary trouble isn’t coming from government it is coming from our other institutions.
States acting as individual entities asserting their Sovereignty over the many issues that have been usurped by the Feds isn’t out of the realm of possibility. That’s an attainable goal.
The speech [and its carefully staged setting] was a declaration of war by the Left on our country, people, and Constitution. That is not retractable, or in this case deniable, It doesn’t matter that every other day he denies what he said, and then the next day re-emphasizes it. We have a government that would rule us without our consent.
Trump is doing something right, judging from the unhinged hysteria reflex he gets from all the right people. He really threatens their cushy little fiefdoms of ill-gotten gains. People who don’t want America to be great again should move to Venezuela or North Korea
“Convention” of states, not “convection” of states as it is typed twice in this article.
Hey, they got it right the third time. A .333 average in baseball could get you into the Hall of Fame.
Still waiting for the Cocaine Turtle to weigh in on Brandon’s “Gates of Hell” speech. I guess he is pleased with Brandon’s clarifications about how he has not complaints about those Republicans who cooperate with Democrats in destroying America.
