Dr. Anthony Fauci said that just about everyone would eventually get omicron, but even so Democrats do not seem wary of the federal government’s response to COVIDm (Based on a new Rasmussen Reports poll conducted with the Heartland Institute).
CDC Director Rochelle Walensky announced that the currently available vaccines do not prevent omicron transmission or symptomatic illness from the virus. Despite this, most Democrats support vaccine mandates, and many want punitive measures against those who don’t get the COVID-19 vaccine.
In a new national telephone and online survey from Rasmussen Reports and the Heartland Institute, 48% of voters support President Biden’s plan to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine on employees of large employers and government agencies. Among them are 33% who strongly favor the mandate. 48 percent of respondents oppose Biden’s vaccine mandate, including 40 percent who strongly oppose it.”
There is a similar divide over Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top COVID-19 expert. Fifty-five percent (45%) have a favorable opinion of Fauci, including 28 percent who have a very positive opinion. Forty-eight percent (48%) have an unfavorable impression of Fauci, including 34% with a Very Unfavorable view of him.
“After two excruciatingly long years, likely voters are beginning to question the federal government’s handling of the pandemic,” said Chris Talgo, executive director of The Heartland Institute, which authorized this poll. “First and foremost, likely voters are beginning to sour on Dr. Anthony Fauci, who seems to have lost credibility after countless flip-flops.”
78% of Democrats support mandatory COVID vaccinations, which would force people to lose their jobs if they refuse the vaccine. The majority of Democrats favor Dr. Fauci. A majority of Republicans and unaffiliated voters oppose mandates and are probably not going to be inviting President Biden’s chief medical advisor to their birthday parties.
In addition, a majority of Democrats favor tougher punishment for those who refuse vaccinations that can’t prevent transmission or illness: For those who will not get the COVID-19 vaccine, 47% support a government tracking program to ensure they are socially distanced and quarantined. 55% favor fines for those who don’t receive vaccines. 59% favor keeping unvaccinated individuals in their homes, except in cases of emergency. Now THIS one is scary. Almost 48% of respondents believe that federal and state governments should have the power to fine or imprison people who publicly question the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines (on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications).
As the Omicron variant of COVID-19 produces a spike in cases nationwide, about 75% of the US is already vaccinated against the coronavirus, and approximately 60% some-odd of those have gotten booster shots.
Americans are obviously concerned about new variants of the COVID-19 virus, but Democrats are certainly more concerned than others, and place more trust in vaccines to protect against the disease-even as the CDC announces that the vaccines do NOT prevent a case of the ‘cooties-CDC Director Rochelle Walensky actually went on CNN and said that vaccines cannot prevent transmission of COVID-19.
In 45% of cases, the government should force citizens to live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
For those who will not get the COVID-19 vaccine, 47% support a government tracking program for those who won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine-to ensure that they socially distance and quarantine. Whether we would have to wear the yellow stars on our lapels remains to be seen.
If you want to know how far some of these tyrant-wannabes will go, 29% would agree to take your children if you refuse to get the jabbie. That’s more than twice the level of support in the rest of the electorate — seven percent (7%) of Republicans and 11% of unaffiliated voters.
In the survey, it is noted that President Biden’s strongest supporters are most likely to support his COVID policies and the harshest penalties for the unvaccinated. I could have probably saved them some money on THAT particular revelation.
“Among voters who have a Very Favorable impression of Biden, 51% are in favor of the government putting the unvaccinated in ‘designated facilities,’ and 54% favor imposing fines or prison sentences on vaccine critics,” the authors note.
Other polling from Rasmussen shows that Democrats have higher rates of fear related to COVID and new variants. Democrats, on the whole, expressed concern about variants such as omicron by 42% in December. Republican voters expressed concern in the same proportion as unaffiliated voters (22%). Democrats were also far more likely to think vaccines provided more protection than the immunity gained from a “natural” infection.
Follow the science™.
Australia and New Zealand have embraced their inner Gestapo, and a significant portion of Joe Biden voters would fit right in. As an alternative, we can continue The Great Re-Sorting in the U.S., and those who believe in medical freedom can move to the gorgeous mountain states like Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming. Biosecurity authoritarian Democrats can enjoy the Northeast while waiting for California to collapse.
Corporate media would be wise to start inundating their Democratic viewers’ heads with facts and reality if they really want us to believe that COVID has not caused mass Formation Psychosis. By promoting punitive, authoritarian policies, corporate media is contributing to mass Formation Psychosis. The systemic Crushing of Americans’ fundamental rights-over a virus that everyone, vaccinated or unvaccinated, is going to get according to their favorite bureaucrat, Dr. Fauciv is patently insane.
And is about to become dangerous in the foreseeable future.
