According to a recent poll conducted by the University of Texas and the Texas Tribune, the majority of Texas residents believe that the federal government is planning to arrest political dissentnents during a “domestic military intervention.”
One striking result from the poll was the reasons respondents thought the federal government would intervene.
“You put federal government into it and people’s skepticism and their concern really rises,” said Daron Shaw, a professor at UT-Austin.
“It cuts into everybody’s suspicion,” Shaw stated. “Nobody trusts the federal government. About a third of Democrats are concerned about the government going nuts. Among Republicans, it’s between 55 percent and two-thirds.”
