76 Percent of Democrats Say They'd Vote for a Socialist for President, New Poll Shows


Recommended Posts

 

Just over three-quarters of Democratic voters said that they would vote to elect a socialist president, according to poll results from Gallup released Tuesday.

The poll, conducted between January 16 and 29, asked respondents whether they identified as Republican, Democrat or independent and questioned them about their willingness to vote for candidates with "diverse characteristics."

"Between now and the 2020 political conventions, there will be discussion about the qualifications of presidential candidates—their education, age, religion, race and so on," read the poll question, according to Gallup. "If your party nominated a generally well-qualified person for president who happened to be [characteristic], would you vote for that person?"

When it came to candidates who were socialists, Democrats were most likely to answer that they would vote for them. Seventy-six percent of Democrats said they would back a socialist candidate, compared with 17 percent of Republicans and 45 percent of independents.

 

Being a socialist was the only characteristic to receive "majority opposition" from most Americans, according to Gallup. That is, a plurality of Americans said they would not vote for a socialist. About 53 percent of Americans said they would not vote for a socialist, while 45 percent said that they would. The percentage of those who would vote that way was down 2 points from a 2015 Gallup poll that asked the same question.

What a lie.  Democrats had a chance to vote for a Communist-Socialist with Bernie Sanders - they rejected him in favor of a brain-dead loser Biden (who is Socialist-lite).   Come on, just admit it you completely made up those statistics.

I say it is very respectful.  Are you claiming that I cannot point out  a lie when I see it?  If you feel the urge, then turn me into the mods, let them decide.
