Via AAN:

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.

This poll is not surprising. Lefties want to virtue signal that they like all of the lefty ideas, but they want someone else to pay for them. Of course most of the lefties are not willing to put up their own money. That’s what the problem is. Lefties want conservatives to pay for everything, all while calling conservatives racists. The Democrats’ scheme, of course, is to have the red states pay at the federal level to cover all of the losses in the blue states. This needs to stop. Whatever Green New Deal or other nonsense that the leftists want, they need to pay for it. Conservatives in red states need to push for secession due to taxation without representation. I don’t want to pay federal taxes to go to these fools as they send it to the Wuhan lab in China, pay for the Green New Deal, pay for people to get vaccines, and pay for illegal aliens. No thanks.

Of that 5 trillion how much will go to the Democrat party in kickbacks from the vested interests who number thousands involved in the greatest super lucrative fraud in the history of humanity.
Every single alarmist fraudulent prediction made by criminal scientists on the take numbering hundreds has turned out to be disgustingly wrong over a 40 year period.
When are the masses going to realise they are suckers being laughed at by serial and psychopathic liars.
Thousands of terrifying predictions and every one totally proven wrong.

These people seem not to have much to do in this world — that would likely explain the idiocy of their concept of “climate change”! These people should leave such concepts to those who actually know what climate change is all about and what should or should not be done about it! The also- -rans should just listen, rather than give advice!

I do have to wonder just who these people are who claim to know so much when, in actual fact, they’re mainly ignorant as to what’s happening in our world and get their information from others who are more than likely as ignorant as they are! We’re all better off to just ignore them!

The democrats are finding out that the great majority of our population isn’t on board with their lunacy. AOC should be taking care of her poor Abuela and not braying like the a** she is to the media
