Democrat voters embrace restrictive policies, including punitive measures, against those who choose to not get the Covid-19 vaccine. That's according to a recent Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey.
The Covid-19 vaccines have proven to be largely ineffective after a few months, requiring boosters, which have recently proven ineffective at preventing infection and spread of Covid.
Here are some of the findings:
- Fifty-five percent (55%) of Democrat voters would support a federal or state proposal to fine Americans who choose not to get the Covid-19 vaccine, compared to just 19% of Republicans and 25% of unaffiliated voters.
- Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democrats would 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; 61% of all likely voters oppose such measures, including 79% of Republicans and 71% of unaffiliated voters.
- Almost half of Democrat voters (48%) say they think federal and state governments should be able to fine or imprison individuals who publicly question efficacy of Covid-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications; 27% of all voters – including just 14% of Republicans and 18% of unaffiliated voters – favor criminal punishment of vaccine critics.
- Forty-five percent (45%) of Democrats would favor governments requiring citizens to temporarily live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a Covid-19 vaccine. A large majority (71%) of all voters strongly oppose such a proposal, with 78% of Republicans and 64% of unaffiliated voters saying they would "strongly oppose" putting the unvaccinated in “designated facilities.”
