The hatred of President Donald Trump apparently goes so deep among New Hampshire Democrats that 64% of those asked in a recent poll say that they would rather see a meteor crash into the earth and extinguish all human life than see Trump get re-elected this November.
“According to a poll from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, 64% of Democratic voters would rather see ‘a giant meteor strike the Earth, extinguishing all human life’ than President Trump re-elected,” reports The Week. “The poll, conducted Jan. 28–31, also shows about half of Independent voters would say the same extreme thing.”
The existential mindset breaks down strictly along class lines, with a full 69% of those making under $50,000 a year approving of Armageddon over Trump’s re-election, compared to just 49% of those who make more than $100,000 a year.
Here’s a visual breakdown:

According to Rolling Stone, the poll also showed that a striking number of self-described conservatives would also prefer annihilation that four more years of Trump.
“Somewhat surprisingly, 28% of conservatives joined the majority of Democrats on wiping out all of mankind rather than dealing with another four years of Trump,” reported the outlet. “And to no one’s surprise, 68% of women polled, more than any other group, would welcome a fireball of death over the president remaining in the White House.”
A similar poll was conducted among young people in 2016, which showed that 53% “of people between the ages of 18 and 35 said they’d rather have a giant meteor destroy the Earth than see either win the presidency.”
“This election season, young people, 54%, have something in common with older voters, 65%, in rooting for sweet death rather than having to deal with a victorious Trump,” continued Rolling Stone.
Though it’s difficult to determine if they were joking, some on social media also expressed delight over the prospect of a meteor wiping out all of humanity, as opposed to Trump occupying the White House for another four years.
“His numbers with women are absolutely abysmal. Yes I know the alternative is a meteor strike, but we hate him with the fire of a thousand suns, so in a way it’s fitting,” said one Twitter user.
“As a NH resident, I confirm that this is EXACTLY how I feel,” said another user.
“Same result either way but at least the meteor is quick,” said another.
Other people on social media just said the poll is yet another example of leftist brainwashing to hate President Trump that has made unreasonable many otherwise-unreasonable people.
“This isn’t surprising given the evil people they keep electing. They are unhinged, the cult of death, and enemies of all that is good. If they can’t enslave everyone and rule, they’d rather everything get destroyed. Absolutely evil,” said one Twitter user.
“This is a good example of how well propaganda works on the viewers of liberal media…” said another user.
“Publicize this in swing states, and the arrogance alone will add 10K+ votes to Trump’s totals. They just can’t help themselves. It’s adorable, the preening and vanity,” said another.
