Almost half of voters, 46 percent, believe if elected Donald Trump will detonate a nuclear weapon. Nearly the same number, 44 percent, believe Trump would institute internment camps for the undocumented, according to a just-released poll by a conservative group founded "by former Republican elected officials and advisors to GOP administrations, congressional leaders, and party organizations."
The Lincoln Leadership Initiative poll of 1051 registered voters also found a majority believe Trump will allow the U.S. government to default on its debt (54% chance), create a database to track all Muslims in the U.S. (also a 54% chance), order the military to target the families of terrorists (53% chance), and use the powers of his office against a political opponent (65% chance).
Respondents also said there is a 65% chance of race riots in major cities should Trump be elected.
