Poll Reveals Shocking Number of Dems Would Incarcerate Unvaccinated Americans

A new survey reveals that an alarming number of Democrats support sending Americans who have yet to get a COVID-19 vaccine to “designated facilities.”

The Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports asked in a telephone survey: “Would you strongly favor, somewhat favor, somewhat oppose or strongly oppose a proposal to limit the spread of the coronavirus by having federal or state governments require that citizens temporarily live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine?”

Of the respondents, a shocking 45 percent of Democrats answered they favored such an idea.

Among all voters surveyed, 71 percent opposed the idea; 78 percent of Republicans and 64 percent of unaffiliated voters said they would “strongly oppose” such an idea, the Daily Wire reported, citing the survey.

The report added:

Additionally, although 66% of likely voters would oppose government using digital devices to track unvaccinated people to ensure that they were quarantined or socially distancing from others, 47% of Democrats approved of the idea.

Nearly half (48%) of Democrats favored federal and state government having the capacity to levy fines or imprisonment on people who publicly questioned the efficacy of vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. Only 27% of voters agreed, including 14% of Republicans and 18% of unaffiliated voters.

A whopping 59% of Democrats favored a government policy that required citizens remained confined to their homes at all times, except for emergencies, if they refused to get the COVID vaccine. 61% of all voters opposed that, including a huge 79% of Republicans and 71% of unaffiliated voters.

Most frighteningly, 29% of Democrats favored temporarily removing parents’ custody of their children if the parents refused to get the COVID vaccine. Only 7% of Republicans and 11% of unaffiliated voters agreed.

“Remember that this is the party that is constantly warning of the dangers posed by domestic extremists,” tweeted investigative journalist Alex Rubenstein in response to the poll.

“The result that really stands out to me is almost half of Democratic voters want to send you to prison for questioning the efficacy of the ‘vaccine’ on social media when the *official* numbers have rapidly declined in the course of the past year & we also have a 1st Amendment,” he added.

Chris Talgo, senior editor and research fellow at The Heartland Institute, noted the results: “After two excruciatingly long years, likely voters are beginning to question the federal government’s handling of the pandemic. First and foremost, likely voters are beginning to sour on Dr. Anthony Fauci, who seems to have lost credibility after countless flip-flops.”

“Moreover, almost half of likely voters oppose President Biden’s vaccine mandates, which seem less about stopping the spread of COVID-19 and more about increasing the power of the federal government,” he continued.

“When asked about several other potential strategies, such as fining those who refuse to get vaccinated, the consensus among likely voters is that the federal government should do less, not more,” he added.
