ANALYSIS – Despite the feverish attempts by Joe Biden and the far left to paint Trump supporters as ‘semi-fascists’ and ‘domestic extremists,’ the majority of the American people apparently aren’t buying it.
In fact, a majority of Americans appear to fear the socialist left’s growing power far more than MAGA Republicans.
Most also didn’t like Biden’s highly partisan political speech in Philadelphia, billed as a “soul of the nation” address, which denounced MAGA Republicans as dangerous.
This, according to a recent Harvard-CAPS Harris poll.
The poll was conducted one week after Biden gave his dark and divisive speech saying former president Donald Trump and the ‘MAGA Republicans’ represent “an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”
Specifically, Biden claimed that: “there’s no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans and that is a threat to this country.”
Regarding that address, fifty-six percent of voters said they opposed his speech. And the same percentage said it was a partisan political speech, not a policy address.
A significant majority of sixty percent called the speech ‘divisive’ and said it holds the country back.
Only forty percent said the speech helps unite the country and move it forward.
Fifty-four percent said Biden raising fears of fascism and an end to American democracy was just fear-mongering and politicking.
The poll was equally straightforward when it asked simply: “Are you more concerned about the Socialist left in America and the power they are gaining or more afraid of MAGA Republicans and the power they are getting?”
A full fifty-five percent said they were more concerned with the socialist left than MAGA Republicans.
Another question asked: “Do you think there are tens of millions of dangerous MAGA Republicans backing violence and trying to overthrow the constitution or is that a gross exaggeration and distortion?”
A similar majority of fifty-four percent responded that the number of “dangerous MAGA Republicans” is “grossly exaggerated.”
A full fifty-six percent also said it was ‘inappropriate’ for Biden to call Trump supporters/MAGA Republicans “semi-fascist.”
Fifty-four percent of those polled also said it was ‘inappropriate to have Marines standing behind him during the speech.
The poll also included questions about Hunter Biden’s laptop and government collusion with Big Tech censorship – with surprising results. Likewise the responses to the questions about Biden’s hiring of 87,000 new IRS agents.
These poll results seem to show that most Americans aren’t buying the harsh and divisive rhetoric Biden is selling. This may portend well for the midterm elections.
