Hypothetical Poll—which group more likely to endorse a police state on their terms, Biden voters or Trump voters?

Pursuant to the establishment of a police state is the hyper identification of the major opposing political party as an existential threat, and concomitant willingness or apathy regarding the prospective incarceration of leaders and members of the opposing political party.

It is that quality of hyper sensitivity to the major opposition that enables the dissolution/suspension of all deliberation and any human rights (first and foremost, due judicial process/habeas corpus), resulting even in massacre, regarding the opposition.

Today in the US, if a poll were conducted, which group, Biden voters or Trump voters, would be seen to have the highest percentage of such hyper mentalities—that see the opposition as an existential threat justifying suspension of habeas corpus and violent incarceration? On what real evidence to you base your opinion?

      I tend to agree with you. Leftists seem to have a nose for politics divorced from ethics. While rightists seem more constrained by ethics, and face practical aspects of politics with apathy (e.g. Kemp/Raffensperger standing by while Democrats set the terms for the 2020 Georgia election and any subsequent election investigation),

      In this sense, today's leftists resemble Bolsheviks and today's rightists (including Trump voters) resemble Kerenskyites and Mensheviks, the social-democrats of 1917-18 Russia who attempted to play by constitutional rules while Bolsheviks propagandized and organized a power base among Russian illiterates. When it came to a showdown in October (Russian calendar), Bolsheviks had the mob behind them.

    On THEIR terms? Me dino thinks Biden voters are more likely to endorse a police state on the terms of their wannabe elite rulers.
    Defeated by another rigged election that pertains to a police state, Trump voters would seek a divorce like mhubb says.

    I hear people on both sides, based on their arguments that I hear or read, as hyper-sensitive toward the opposition.

    You can pick an issue that Democrats will feel mortally attacked over. But you can also pick an issue that Republicans will feel mortally attacked over. How about guns and abortion?

    Everyone that is politically passionate has a tendency to want to throw the opposition in jail, or in front of a spinning Dillon Aero M134A. (Powered by an environmentally friendly lithium battery.)
