Most New Hampshire Democrats would rather see a meteor ‘extinguish all human life’ than Trump re-elected, poll finds
Women favor global death far more strongly than men
A good majority of New Hampshire Democrats are feeling existential right about now.
According to a poll from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, 64 percent of Democratic voters would rather see “a giant meteor strike the Earth, extinguishing all human life” than President Trump re-elected. The poll, conducted Jan. 28–31, also shows about half of Independent voters would say the same extreme thing.
How New Hampshire voters feel about the death of humanity does coincide with how well they’re materially doing on this planet. While 69 percent of respondents making under $50,000 a year say they’d be cool with blowing up, just 49 percent of those who make more than $100,000 say the same. Younger voters also seem more fed up with this world than older ones.
