About Half Of Republicans Believe Trump Should Push His Totalitarian Ways And Shut Down The Media: Poll

In a terrifying new reveal, a new poll questioned Republicans if Donald Trump should have the power to shut down media outlets if he thought they engaged in “bad behavior.” The poll revealed that nearly half of those Republican voters thought the president should do just that.

According to an Ipsos poll obtained by The Daily Beast, 43 percent of Republicans believe “the president should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” While only 36 percent of Republicans thought Trump shouldn’t have the power to shut down the free press.

The poll also found that nearly 25 percent of Republicans think that Trump should shut down mainstream media outlets that criticize him, like CNN and The Washington Post. Also, nearly 30 percent of Republicans believe that the media is the “enemy of the people.”
