A new poll shows the vast majority of Americans, including Democrats and others who voted for President Joe Biden, approve of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Law.
Something funny happens when the legacy media is circumvented and the public gets the truth, especially with legislation as misrepresented as Gov. Ron DeSantis’ bill. The poll by Public Opinion Strategies, as reported in The Wall Street Journal,” finds when presented with the actual language of the new Florida law, Americans by a two-to-one margin are in favor.
The so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill not only says “gay,” but it merely prohibits instruction that is not age or developmentally appropriate for kindergarten through third grade.
Four to eight years old. This is what has Disney worked up into a frenzy.
A full 55% of Democrats and 53% of Americans who voted for Biden agree with the law. Suburban voters approve by a 60% to 30% margin, and 61% of those who “know someone LGBTQ” and a whopping 67% of parents favor Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Law.
It’s important to present those polled with the actual law, not a question worded in a misleading way. For example, liberal media outlets touted a recent ABC News/Ipsos poll that found 62% of respondents oppose “laws like the one recently passed in Florida.”
Let’s look closer. The poll asked if you oppose legislation that would prohibit teaching about sexual orientation or gender identity in elementary school.
So anywhere from five to 12. Vastly different parameters from the Florida bill, as “elementary school” can run up to almost teenage years. But the results were reported as most Americans oppose “don’t say gay” legislation “such as was recently passed in Florida.”
“Don’t Say Gay” is just another reason why Americans increasingly distrust the media, and why the left so aggressively attempts to silence opposing viewpoints. President Joe Biden was just revealed to have privately expressed that conservative media is a great danger to our democracy. Voters are not stupid, and when presented with facts unfiltered through the lenses of radicals, they are quite capable of seeing the truth.
