Two polls have pretty solid proof that the Republican base is full of authoritarian nitwits (but we knew that, right?).
The Economist/ You Gov poll shows that, when it comes to the First Amendment, Republicans prefer almost any other one. Forty- five (45) percent of Republicans believe that the courts should be permitted "to shut down news media outlets for publishing or broadcasting stories that are biased or inaccurate.” Eighteen (18) percent of Democrats, sadly, and twenty- five (25) percent of independents feel the same way.
In a Politico/ Morning Consult poll, forty- nine (49) percent of Trump voters think he won the popular vote in 2016. Of course, he lost by almost 3 million.
See, that's the kind of news 45% of Republicans would like to shut down.
