CAMBRIDGE, Ma. – A new Fox News poll conducted during President Obama’s farewell address on Tuesday shows that nearly 37% of American voters would adhere to a monarchy-style government under Barack Obama. As a monarch, Mr. Obama would command total power and authority over the United States for life or until abdication.
“What’s interesting about this is it really shows you the immense impact President Obama has made on the lives of ordinary Americans over the last eight years,” remarked Martha MacCallum, co-host of American Newsroom, which airs 9 AM – 11 AM EST on Fox News. MacCallum noted that of the 37% in favor, a startling 16% said they would “strongly prefer” a repressive monarchy under Obama over a constitutional republic under Trump.
Further, a large fraction of American voters said they’d be willing to sacrifice certain basic freedoms and rights in order to support an Obama monarchy. Of the options provided, 57% favored relinquishing at least half of their annual income to the monarchy. Meanwhile, 25% of those surveyed said they could do without the right to own firearms if it would please the monarchy and 18% would be willing to give up their right to own land.
The poll, which surveyed 1,039 randomly selected registered voters nationwide, suggests that many Americans are fed up with “politics as usual” in the United States. “If we’ve learned anything from this election, it’s that people are sick of the status quo,” said Breitbart News Network’s chief political analyst Dr. Elliot Stabler. “My only concern here is that a monarchy could hinder the spread of nationalism in this country.”
Overall, 92% of those in favor of a monarchy-style government said they were confident Barack Obama would be a fair and just monarch rather than one who is aggressive and unforgiving. While 44% agreed that Mr. Obama should tap his eldest daughter, eighteen year-old Malia Ann, as his successor, more than 63% said they “strongly believe” fifteen year-old Sasha Obama can be groomed into one day becoming a powerful and influential ruler.
