4 of 10 Democrats Support Open Borders, Gun Confiscation, & Unlimited Abortions
The Zogby Analytics survey reveals radical left promises are winning voters
The Democrats' liberal virtue-signaling may have struck a chord with target voters after it was revealed a sizable number back their most far-left policies.
Those promises Democrat voters support include "Medicare for all," gun confiscation, and open borders, according to a new survey.
The Zogby Analytics survey also revealed substantial support for slavery reparations to African Americans and the Green New Deal.
The survey focused on where Democrats stand on key issues and candidates.
It was also found that 2020 hopeful Joe Biden continues to hold a national lead in the 2020 primary and caucus race, followed by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
Last week, Biden declared that immigrants "are the future of America," and people "should get used to it."
"The reason we’re the country we are is because of immigration,” Biden responded to the question about reparations during the presidential debate on CNN, which was co-moderated by PBS and Politico.
“We’ve been able to cherry-pick the very best from every single continent,” he added.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has pushed his way into fourth place with a multimillion-dollar ad campaign, leaving Pete Buttigieg, the leader in the Iowa caucus, to fifth.
Other candidates like Sanders and Warren have made somewhat lavish promises to voters on key issues and programs, with the poll finding there is a good audience for helping illegal immigrants.
Among Democratic voters, Zogby found that:
- 68% support "Medicare for all."
- 63% would repeal the Trump tax cuts.
- 53% back a ban on new oil and natural gas drilling on federal land.
- 49% support the Green New Deal.
- 43% support reparations for African Americans.
- 39% would decriminalize illegal border crossings.
- 38% want taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal immigrants.
- 38% support unlimited abortion.
- 36% support the confiscation of legally owned firearms from those who have not committed a crime.
The survey was conducted of 443 likely Democratic primary voters.
Based on a confidence interval of 95%, the margin of error for the poll of 443 is plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.
