So apparently GOP voters are cool with a military coup now? Well, 43% of them, not a majority—but still!

Full poll here.

Now, the way the question is asked, is: “is there any situation in which you could imagine yourself” supporting a US military coup. ANY SITUATION—so I guess maybe Republicans are just more creative in the situations they imagine?

Maybe if the executive branch was taken over by lizard people, and they removed their human masks and showed themselves to be lizard people, a military coup might be our only hope of saving ourselves—but if that were the case, wouldn’t the top brass in the armed forces probs be lizard people too? Like, we have to assume that the lizard people are thorough. So, I feel like having the military be in charge has got to be worse than pretty much anything I can think of off the top of my head!
