Poll: 29% Think Armed Rebellion Might Soon Be Necessary | TPMDC

Attitudes Behind the Divide on Gun Control




Here the breakdown, by geographical region:

NE 20%
Midwest 21%
South 32%
West 27%

This means that 32% of respondents in the poll were from the South. This may look as if the poll is skewed, but it is not. The South currently constitutes 32.16% of the population of the USA:

Just add up the Southern states and you get 32.16%. And that is excluding Kentucky, which is really more of a border state.

Of course your title is a little misleading, and misses the mark. 30% of Americans think an armed revolution is necessary. That's like over 100m people and that's speaks poorly of the few control freaks that think we're disposable.

About the same percentage as the original Patriots during our Revolution.

The South has a long tradition of not trusting Central Authority.

You can call us ignorant, racist, whatever, but....this has not changed since Dixie was first settled.

If not for the South, there would be no America.

Yup. I alluded to this poll yesterday on the board. I hope calm heads prevail.

BTW this is why they want our guns, and it will get ugly if we allow that. These people already think of us....all of us as terrorist.

Yeah, right .... the American Revolution of the late 18th century has NOTHING in common with today's whiners who say armed rebellion is appropriate now.
