Poll: Nearly Half Of Democrats Support Fines, Segregated Camps And Prison Terms For Those Who Disagree With Them On COVID

The COVID-19 narrative is retracting, if not collapsing, on many fronts. But that doesn’t mean Democrats are ready to throw in the towel.

In fact, the responses gathered from the left in a new poll by Rasmussen Reports and the Heartland Institute, a conservative think tank, should give those on the right cause for concern.

Taken last week, on the day the U.S. Supreme Court rejected President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate, the poll found 48 percent of respondents favored the forced jabs.

The number was that high because of Democrats, 78 percent of whom supported Biden’s push for mandatory shots. Only 22 percent of Republicans agreed with them.

Yet that was only part of it.

As Rasmussen noted, “While many voters have become skeptical toward the federal government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a majority of Democrats embrace restrictive policies, including punitive measures against those who haven’t gotten the COVID-19 vaccine.”

“Many Democrats would support even harsher measures [than the mandate], including fines for Americans who won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine and criminal punishment for vaccine critics.”

For instance, 55 percent of Democrats support a “proposal for federal or state governments to fine Americans who choose not to get a COVID-19 vaccine,” Rasmussen noted.

An even bigger share of Democrats, 59 percent, favor “a government policy requiring that citizens remain confined to their homes at all times, except for emergencies, if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine.”

Almost half of Democrats – 48 percent – have given up on the First Amendment by thinking “federal and state governments should be able to fine or imprison individuals who publicly question the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications.”

Similarly, 45 percent of Democrats like the idea of COVID camps, where governments could require citizens “to temporarily live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine.”

Meanwhile, 47 percent of Democrats are fine with governments “using digital devices to track unvaccinated people to ensure that they are quarantined or socially distancing from others.”

Rasmussen also found that a sizable portion of Democrats – 29 percent – would support “temporarily removing parents’ custody of their children if parents refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine.”

The pollster added, “President Biden’s strongest supporters are most likely to endorse the harshest punishments against those who won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine.”

The poll revealed that of those who have a “very favorable” opinion of Biden, 51 percent favor the government putting the unvaccinated in “designated facilities”; 54 percent support imposing fines or prison sentences on vaccine critics.

So, in sum, nearly half of Democrats, if not more in some cases, would support draconian, dictatorial measures to save them from a virus survived by 99 percent of the people who contract it.

  1. What part of the democrats party is public servants have they got a problem with, they are NOT ARE LORD AND MASTERS, THEIR EMPLOYEES OF THE PEOPLE and can be charged with “abuse of power” and removed from their seats.

    1. Personally, I think all communist democreep’s should be put in concentration camps, and fed minimal bread and water, till they croak or have 1 opportunity for a one-way ticket to the communist country of their choice, with explicit knowledge that if they ever returned to this country, they would be shot to death on site!

  2. We want the same treatment for baby killers, anyone promoting racism (CRT), anyone that voted for FJB, anyone that opposses gun ownership by citizens, anyone participating in the scamdemic, anyone that wants open borders, and anyone that wants to go soft on criminals. FJB.

  3. While Democrats howl about “authoritarian trends,” they fail to see that the enemy is looking back at them in the mirror. This is why they must never be given the power to push their plans to fruition.

  4. Legal punishment (harm) has never worked for anything. Discipline which enables things to be set right is the kink of help that is needed. It seems COVID will be little more than a flue and one combined vaccine will be the norm for those that guard against it. The Democrats always supported punitive controls for their slaves and supporters.
