President Obama, Hillary Clinton and other Democrats are out of touch with the American voters. They refuse to say that we are at war with radical Islamists, because they don’t want to insult the terrorists, but that is not how American voters feel.
A new Rasmussen poll finds that 60% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States is at war with radical Islamic terrorism, only 24% share the Democratic Obama/Clinton view and and disagree. The remaining 16% are undecided.
Despite what the mainstream media claims, it’s not just the Republicans who feel this way, 56% of Democrats believe America is at war with radical Islam, 54% of independents and 70% of Republicans.
Even 56% of Democrats believe America is at war with radical Islamic terrorism, a view shared by 70% of Republicans and 54% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Looking at ideology, a big majority of conservatives (67%), and moderates (61%) believe we are at war with radical Islam, and a plurality of liberals (42% vs 39%)
A staggering 92% of all voters now regard radical Islamic terrorism as a somewhat or very serious threat to the United States. This includes 73% who say it is a Very Serious threat to America. Again this runs across all parties. Just looking at the very serious line, 86% of Republicans believe that Islamic terrorism is a very serious threat compared to 64% of Democrats and 70% of independents. The vast majority Conservatives (86%) and Moderates (74%) believe that Islamic terror is a very serious threat and a stronger plurality of liberals (47% vs 36%).
Compounding the Democratic Party’s dissonance with the American electorate, a Rasmussen poll published yesterday reported that 77% of voters are now concerned that giving thousands of Syrians asylum poses a national security risk to the United States.
Maybe it’s time for the Democratic Party leadership to put down the phony rhetoric and start listening to the American people.
