A new poll released this week reveals that Democrats overwhelmingly back the racist “Critical Race Theory” while everyone else soundly rejects it.
The Daily Wire reports:
“The Economist/YouGov poll released on Wednesday showed 58 percent of Americans polled find the controversial curriculum somewhat or very unfavorable,” Newsweek reported. “Only 38 percent said they viewed critical race theory favorably.”
The poll found that a whopping 86% of Democrats said that they had a “very favorable” or “somewhat favorable” view toward the extreme ideology. Only 6% of Republicans and 20% of Independents said the same thing. The poll also found that only 37% of Americans thought that Critical Race Theory was “good for America,” while 55% said that it was “bad for America” and 8% said that it was “neither good nor bad for America.”

Backlash to the far-left ideology has been building for months as the ideology seemingly picked up significant momentum in the months following the violent riots that broke out across the U.S. last year in response to the death of George Floyd.
Efforts to combat the racist ideology have been led Republicans at the state and local level and by parents and refugees of varied racial and ethnic backgrounds, many of whom are not white.
