The only thing shocking in this poll is that the numbers are as low as they are:
U.S. Conservatives Are Uniquely Inclined Toward Right-Wing Authoritarianism Compared to Western Peers
- A scale measuring propensity toward right-wing authoritarian tendencies found right-leaning Americans scored higher than their counterparts in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom.
- 26% of the U.S. population qualified as highly right-wing authoritarian, Morning Consult research found, twice the share of the No. 2 countries, Canada and Australia.
- The beliefs that voter fraud decided the 2020 election, that Capitol rioters were doing more to protect than undermine the government and that masks and vaccines are not pivotal to stopping COVID-19 were similarly prevalent among right-leaning Americans and those that scored high for right-wing authoritarianism.
We keep pointing out that the dead-enders are always around 27%; that was Chimpy McStagger’s final approval rating when his Reign of Error concluded with the global financial crash.
We keep saying it because the Coup Klux Klan keeps proving us right: Republican hate democracy, and they hate this country.
