Voters have liberal bias

According to the latest McCarthy-Marxist poll, the American people want the Bush tax cuts to expire on rich people, oppose letting Obama’s tax cut expire, and do not want to cut Medicare or increase the eligibility to 67. But we already knew this: the American people have a liberal bias.

Unfortunately, there is a deeper problem revealed by this poll, and shown in the graph below. When looking only at self-identified Republican voters, they also oppose letting Obama’s tax cut expire, cutting Medicare or Medicaid spending, or raising the eligibility age.

Republican voters have a liberal bias

So in essence, Republican voters are against all of the ideas put forth by the Republicans in congress.


Of course, they are also opposed to letting the tax cuts expire on the rich job creators. They are also opposed to compromise. So there is an alternative explanation.

It’s possible that Republican voters quite simply hate everything.

  1. Where was this poll taken? Republicans OR Democrats are not created equal throughout the US. You could easily slant your poll by let’s say asking Republicans from New York or California only. If you did this poll in nursing homes, I don’t care which side of the aisle you are from, very few would support reducing Medicare/Medicaid spending. If you asked people who are 55 and over if they would support raising the eligibility age for social welfare to 67, of course they would say no. The charts are only as good as the data it comes from. Garbage in is garbage out. The majority of the populace does not know that so they look at the charts and the not so helpful biased comments that come with them and become even more biased. If the average age that people are living to is going up then why shouldn’t we expect to raise the eligible age as well? How are we going to pay for these programs? Please, some liberal, explain to me how we are going to pay for these programs? Taxes?

    1. If you click on the link to the “Graph Data Source”, above, the page that you are directed to has a really long, really detailed paragraph called “METHODOLOGY” that describes exactly how they got responses, and made sure that different regions and groups were represented.

      So I supposed you could start by just reading that.
