What About Authoritarianism Could Go Wrong?

December 3, 2019

More evidence to show the danger that Donald Trump poses to our republic, and more reason to feel concerned about the sheeple who kneel and bow to his whims.

A whopping 43% of Republicans now believe a president free of checks and balances could address the country’s problems more effectively, a number that has grown from just 14% during Trump’s presidency. More evidence of his reshaping of the party in favor of authoritarianism.

The share of Republicans who say presidents could operate more effectively if they did not have to worry so much about Congress and the courts has increased 16 percentage points since then, from 27% to 43%.

Democrats’ views are virtually unchanged over the past year: Currently, 82% say it would be too risky to give presidents more power, while just 16% say presidents could be more effective with less concern over Congress and the courts.
