POLL: Stand and Fight? Republicans, Check; Democrats, Not So Much

Democrat dream come true.

The John Milius classic Red Dawn may nearly be 40-years-old, but it’s a fair question: What if the United States was attacked and occupied by a foreign power?

Would you say and fight, or runaway as fast as your legs could take you?

Luckily for us, the good folks over at Quinnipiac University has issued the results of a rather generic poll of 1,374 U.S. adults nationwide (+/- 2.6 percentage points) asking a variety of ‘what-ifs’ regarding America’s relations with Russia.

Question #8 was rather straightforward: If you were in the same position as Ukrainians are now, do you think that you would stay and fight or leave the country?

  • REPUBLICANS: Stay and fight – 68 percent. Leave the country – 26 percent. Don’t Know/No Opinion – 6 percent.
  • Independents: Stay and fight – 57 percent. Leave the country – 36 percent. Don’t Know/No Opinion – 7 percent.
  • Democrats: Stay and fight – 40 percent. Leave the country – 52 percent. Don’t Know/No Opinion – 8 percent.

The trailer is slightly off. During “our time”, Imperial Japan during the Second World War occupied the US Territories of Guam, Wake, Attu and Kiska Islands.
