Attention candidates - New poll shows China is a voting issue
A new McLaughlin poll commissioned by our Committee on the Present Danger: China has several impressive – and potentially politically consequential – findings:
First, 60 percent of those sampled agreed that the Chinese Communist Party deliberately unleashed the COVID-19 virus on the world.
Second, 60 percent also agreed that the CCP should be held accountable for the deaths of roughly 1 million Americans, the immense economic damage and the loss of personal freedoms caused by the pandemic.
And third, roughly 70 percent said they or their family had been negatively affected by the pandemic.
What makes these data remarkable – and actionable – is that, for the better part of three years, virtually every media and governmental instrument available has relentlessly disinformed, discouraged and outright “cancelled” such sentiments.
Finally, 76 percent said that a candidate’s position on China would be “important” or “a consideration” in their vote.
