Many Say Political Opponents Frighten Them, Threaten Country

You mean like the videos of the anti-Trump supporters physically attacking people attending rallies?

Or The Huffington Post saying that anti-Trump violence is fine?

Democratic and Republican views of the opposing political party have sunk to such lows that many say their rivals make them feel afraid, a major public opinion poll released Wednesday found.

Though party-line division is nearly as old as the republic and polls have long shown unfavorable views of the opposition, the newest Pew Research Center survey shows a worsening of opinions of political adversaries. A majority of Americans in both parties now hold very unfavorable views of the opposing political party, the poll found, a first since Pew began probing the issue.

Majorities in both parties see those on the other side as closed-minded, while significant minorities describe them as immoral, dishonest and unintelligent, the poll found. Sizeable minorities – 45 percent of Republicans and 41 percent of Democrats – see the opposing party’s policies as so misguided they threaten the country’s well-being, up significantly from two years ago.

“The intensity of the feeling is stronger now, this antithetical feeling toward the other party,” said Carroll Doherty, director of political research at Pew.

note: Youtube has apparently taken this out of their search engines for some reason. Regardless of your political affiliation, this type of behavior is completely unacceptable and goes against what the United States stands for. Bullying and violent intimidation should not be tolerated by either side.
