New poll boasts two-thirds of Americans believe MAGA is threatening the country’s democratic foundations. Really?

A new poll published Wednesday boasts bad news for both former President Donald Trump and current President Joe Biden.

Regarding Trump, the Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that a majority of Americans, including a quarter of Republicans, view Trump and his “Make America Great Again” movement as a threat to democracy.

“Fifty-eight percent of respondents in the two-day poll – including one in four Republicans – said Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ movement is threatening America’s democratic foundations,” Reuters reported Wednesday.

Why? That wasn’t specified, though it may stem from Trump’s continued insistence that he won the 2020 presidential election. It was only roughly a week ago that the president published a post to Truth Social calling for him to be reinstated as president or for a new election to be held.

“So now it comes out, conclusively, that the FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION knowing that, if they didn’t, ‘Trump would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election,'” he wrote.

“This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country. REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare the 2020 Election irreparably compromised and have a new Election, immediately!”

But on the other hand, a recent Technometrica Institute of Policy and Politics (TIPP) poll found that a 78 percent majority of Americans believe Trump would have rightfully won the 2020 election had big tech and the media not censored the New York Post’s bombshell reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop.

And so, if 78 percent of Americans believe this, why would they feel threatened by the president’s concerns about the 2020 election? It doesn’t make sense.

Dovetailing back to the Reuters poll, it also found that a 60 percent majority of Republicans doubt that “Trump’s MAGA movement represents the majority of the party.”

But this result also makes no sense given that a majority of Republicans still favor Trump as the 2024 GOP presidential nominee.

“Less than three months from the midterm elections, a new USA Today/Ipsos poll finds that former President Trump continues to be seen as the head of the Republican party, as a majority of Republican voters believe that he can win the next presidential election and should be the party’s nominee in 2024,” Ipsos reported late last month.

Regarding Biden, the Reuters poll found that a 59 percent majority of Americans believe that the primetime address he delivered last week “will further divide the country.” Though on the other hand, the poll also found that roughly half of Americans “didn’t watch or follow the speech at all.”

Regardless, this poll result seems to make more sense given the divisive, polarizing, arguably hateful nature of the president’s speech.

As previously reported, the president used the speech to demonize all so-called “MAGA Republicans,” a pejorative that many believe in fact refers to all Republicans.

Indeed, during his speech, he sought to frame core GOP beliefs on abortion, gay marriage, etc., as somehow extreme and thus part of the “MAGA philosophy.”

“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards, backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love,” he said.

The president also bizarrely accused “MAGA Republicans” of  being the ones who’ve “fanned the flames of political violence” and who are “a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country.”

Never mind that the Democrat Party spent virtually an entire year backing violent Black Lives Matter riots and even bailing out incarcerated rioters — some of whom later went on to commit murders:

Democrats — particularly those in the Biden administration — are also the ones who’ve promoted racial essentialism, sought to compel social media companies to silence their critics, called for the elimination of the filibuster and Electoral College, called for packing the Supreme Court, redefined basic terms, etc.

These actions, some might argue, are a far bigger threat to democracy than anything Trump and his “MAGA” supporters have ever done, including their short-lived, one-day riot early last year at the U.S. Capitol …
