Poll: Democrat Voters Want to Punish Unvaccinated

Jan 18, 2022

If you’re unvaccinated, you’re a target for tyranny, plain and simple.

A new poll shows that likely Democrat voters want those who refuse the COVID shots to only leave home for emergencies, pay a government fine, wear a tracking device and be fined or imprisoned for talking down the shots on social media. Some of these likely Democrat voters even want to temporarily remove your children from your custody.

The poll from The Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports surveyed 1,016 U.S. "likely voters" on Jan. 5, 2022. The survey shows that Republican and Democrat voters appear to be living in two different worlds when it comes to COVID-19.

Key takeaways from the online and phone survey include:
  • 59% of Democrats support the government forcing confinement for unvaccinated Americans in their homes.
  • 78% of Democrats support Joe Biden’s shot mandate for businesses with more than 100 employees.
  • 55% of Democrats support fines for Americans who refuse the shots.
  • 48% of Democrats say the government should fine or imprison Americans who question the efficacy of COVID shots on social media, on radio/TV or in publications.
  • 47% of Democrats support government tracking to ensure quarantines or social distancing.
  • 29% of Democrats say parents should lose custody of their children if they refuse the COVID vaccine.

Republicans and Democrats also have starkly opposing opinions on Dr. Anthony Fauci, the federal government’s spokesman on all things COVID.

Forty-five percent view Fauci favorably, including 28% who have a “very favorable” impression of him. Forty-eight percent have an unfavorable impression of Fauci, including 34% who say they are “very unfavorable” toward him.

You don’t have to look far to see similar views in the media. Take The Salt Lake Tribune, for instance.

An opinion piece by the newspaper’s editorial board in Utah—traditionally a red/conservative state with its high Mormon population—piles on the unjabbed.

On Jan. 15, 2022, the board published an op-ed, “Utah leaders have surrendered to COVID pandemic,” calling on the state’s Republican governor, Spencer Cox, to employ the military to enforce confinement for the unvaccinated.

“Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor’s next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should have launched a year ago, going as far as to deploy the National Guard to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere.”
