American Appeasement: Poll Finds 72% Support Mask Mandates Punishable by Fine or Jail Time


This new Politico/Morning Consult poll comes as more than half of U.S. State governments have issued mandatory mask requirements which they claim will somehow slow transmission of COVID.

Despite repeated claims in mainstream media that they have “studies which show masks are effective in stopping the spread of coronavirus,” in reality no such peer reviewed studies are available. On the contrary, there is a preponderance of evidence which shows the opposite – that masks are not effective in stopping the spread of a microscopic coronavirus.

Still, the incessant barrage of media propaganda and misinformation coming from US public health officials over-exaggerating the threat posed by this coronavirus has resulted in a gelded America – devoid of any Constitutional awareness and eager to comply with just about any diktat coming from the State.

The Hill reports…

A majority of Americans strongly support mask mandates that are punishable by fine or jail time if individuals refuse to wear face coverings in public, a new poll finds. 

The Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 53 percent of registered voters who participated in the survey strongly supported statewide mask mandates that would fine or even jail individuals who refused to wear a mask to prevent the spread of COVID-19. When including voters who somewhat support such mask requirements, 72 percent of voters agreed.

Along party lines, 86 percent of Democrats polled strongly or somewhat supported such mandates, while 58 percent of Republicans and 68 percent of independents polled agreed.

“With public health officials putting renewed emphasis on mask-wearing to combat the coronavirus, nearly three-quarters of voters — including over half of Republicans — would support their state instituting a mandatory mask order for public spaces, even if not wearing a mask could result in a fine or jail time,” Kyle Dropp, co-founder and chief research officer at Morning Consult said according to Politico.

The poll comes as a growing number of states have issued statewide mask mandates. As of Monday, at least 28 states require masks. Several major retailers and other businesses have also recently followed suit.

President Trump, who has opposed a nationwide mask mandate and has mostly refused to wear a mask in public, tweeted a picture Monday of him wearing a mask with the caption “many people say that it is Patriotic to wear a face mask when you can’t socially distance.”
