Public Policy Polling (PPP) offered the hypothetical "Giant Meteor" option in its latest survey.

The giant meteor has support across the ideological spectrum, with 23 percent support amongst somewhat or very liberal voters, 16 percent amongst moderate voters and 21 percent amongst somewhat or very conservative voters.

The poll also found that men are more likely to support the giant meteor than women, while an equal percentage of Republicans and Democrats supported the destruction of the earth over a Trump or Clinton presidency.
