Why America Is Failing – ‘Republicans Call Obama A Greater Threat To America Than Putin And Assad’
It’s not the rank and file Republicans – your neighbors – that have fostered and supported this belief.
It’s FOX ‘news’ and the Republican leadership – from Sarah Palin, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney and all the rest of the elected or highly regarded Republicans.
‘Why is America so politically divided? – BBC News’
‘President Barack Obama poses an imminent threat to the United States greater than Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, say a third of Republicans responding to a Reuters/Ipsos poll this month’.
‘2,809 Americans were asked to rate the threat level posed to the U.S. by several countries, organizations and individuals on a scale of 1 to 5 (one being no threat and 5 being an imminent threat)’.
‘34% of Republicans ranked Obama as an imminent threat to America (equal to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un) – scoring him higher than Putin (25%), Assad (23%) and Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini (27%)’.
‘The only things Republicans found scarier than Obama were Islamic State (58%) and Al Qaeda (43%)’.
‘The findings of the poll reflect the dangers of polarization in U.S. politics identified by Pew Research in the Summer of 2014’.
‘In the largest political survey in its history – a poll of more than 10,000 adults between January and March of that year – Pew found that’:
“Republicans and Democrats are further apart ideologically than at any point in recent history”.
- “Growing numbers of Republicans and Democrats express highly negative views of the opposing party. And to a considerable degree, polarization is reflected in the personal lives and lifestyles of those on both the right and left”.
