Candidates who embraced Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s “Green New Deal” went down in flames in 2020.

A new poll may show why.

Despite claims from the Left that voters are demanding radical action to stop so-called “climate change.”

A new poll of 1,200 registered voters, conducted for the Competitive Enterprise Institute finds that despite non-stop indoctrination from the media and political figures that “climate change” is deadly and tax hikes can stop it, virtually no one is willing to pay higher prices or taxes.

When asked “How much of your own money would you be willing to personally spend each month to reduce the impact of climate change?” the most popular answer was “$0,” at 35 percent.

Half of those polled were not willing to spend more than $10 to reduce climate change.  Only 24 percent of voters were willing to spend more than $50.

Only 25 percent were willing to pay more to replace their gas-powered car with a “green” electric car that runs on toxic heavy metal batteries from open Chinese pit mines.

That’s bad news for the “Green New Deal,” which comes with a $5 trillion price tag.

Among those who claim to be concerned about climate change, the concern appears to be mostly virtue signaling.

70 percent of Democrats claimed to be concerned about climate change but only 37 percent are willing to give up gas vehicles – a centerpiece demand of the “Green New Deal.”

The poll is hardly slanted.  The sample was 36 percent Democrat, 30 percent Republican and 34 percent independent.  55 percent of respondents approve of President Joe Biden’s job performance, in line with other polls.

While Biden won the 2020 election, by denying he opposed fracking and the “Green New Deal,” down-ballot Democrats who ran on it were decimated, losing 12 House seats and nearly losing the Senate.

How can 55% of ANY grouping of people agree that Pedo Joe is doing a good job as Pres? The guy is freaking brain dead! Actually, the less he does the higher his approval rating gets. What does that tell you?

My thoughts as well. What Retirement Home for Former Democommiecrats are they polling? I’ve about a half dozen friends who voted for Slo Joe & Ho. Every single one has apologized for voting for the Senile Fool.

The polls are taken inside CATHOLIC cult holes….Catholic is socialism. ALL CATHOLICS are socialists. Failure of a hundred nations, a thousand years of exactly 100% failure. Vote for ANY Catholic and you vote for a true history of perfect failure.

I’m Catholic and a Republicans. As to the cult issue, study cults before you make an uneducated opinion. I preach against Socialism, Democratic idiocy, Antifa, Black Lives Matter and the many other hypocrites in Washington. By the way, do you know the difference between doctrine and dogma? As to AOC, Biden, Pelosi, they are Catholic in name only as they preach against what the church teaches….Just because the fake news highlights their Catholicism doesn’t make them faithful Catholics any more than it makes you knowledgeable about the Catholic Church. You cannot see past your anti-Catholic bias to observe objectively. Yet, I will fight for your First Amendment rights to say anything you wish but back it up with reality instead of unfounded judgements.

Ocasio-Cortez was born into a Catholic family in the New York City borough of the Bronx on October 13, 1989, the daughter of Blanca Ocasio-Cortez (née Cortez) and Sergio Ocasio-Roman.

I find it very dishearten that 55% of the people approve of the job Biden is doing. Goes to show MSM propaganda is still working in their favor despite of the real unimagined harm his Administration is doing to our country.
