(If Trump had received this level of support during the election of 2016, he’d have no reason whatsoever to worry about his legitimacy as president. As it stands, however, his concerns are not misplaced.)
According to the same study, a majority of both Democrats and Republicans support the agreement. Moreover, registered voters in the United States support remaining in the agreement by a five-to-one margin. And, seven of 10 voters say the United States should remain in the Paris climate agreement, while a paltry 13% say the country should withdraw.
Even many of Dear Leader’s own supporters believe the United States should remain in the agreement; 47% of Trump voters from November say the United States should remain in the agreement with 25% of his supporters on the fence.
In light of this overwhelming support, there’s a clear case for the United States remaining in the Paris climate agreement, right?
Only a vindictive lunatic, hell-bent on self-destruction, would think it’s a wise idea to withdraw from the agreement, right?
Thankfully, there’s nobody like that serving in government today…
