AMAC/TRAFALGAR POLL: Biden Plan to Punish Children for Using Wrong “Pronoun” Wildly Unpopular with Voters

AMAC Exclusive – By Seamus Brennan

Biden

An overwhelming 82 percent of likely voters—including the vast majority of Democrats—oppose a new Biden administration scheme to force school children to attend mandatory “counseling” without parental consent if they refuse to use the “preferred pronouns” of classmates identifying as transgender, according to a new scientific nationwide opinion poll conducted by the Trafalgar Group for AMAC.

The survey’s findings are among the most striking indications to date of the extreme unpopularity of Democrats’ efforts to force left-wing gender theories on children as young as kindergarten.

The inaugural AMAC Newsline poll sampled 1,078 likely voters from September 21-26, using the Trafalgar Group’s trademark methodologies that made the group among the most accurate pollsters in the 2016 and 2020 elections. The margin of error was 2.9 percent. Additional results will be released in the coming days.

The survey specifically asked voters if they “agree with the Biden Administration Education Department’s proposed policy requiring school children to attend mandatory counseling without parental consent if they refuse to use the preferred pronouns of their transgender classmates,” referring to a proposed policy recently outlined by the Biden administration as part of its effort to effectively rewrite Title IX.

Among the 82 percent of voters answering “No” were a staggering 93.2 percent of Hispanic voters and 73 percent of Black voters. For Democrat strategists who have continued to raise red flags about Black and Hispanic voters flocking toward the GOP, these results should underscore just how toxic the Biden administration’s hard-left approach is among the party’s traditional voting base.

In total, 68.6 percent of Democrat voters said they do not agree with the Biden administration’s proposal—signaling a gaping chasm between the far-left cultural agenda of administration officials and the typical Democrat voter.

Few signs could be more troubling for party operatives than the fact that nearly 7 in 10 of their own likely voters oppose a key pillar of the administration’s policy agenda—one that many vulnerable candidates in this fall’s midterm elections have openly embraced.

The proposal is also opposed by 83.3 percent of independents and 92.4 percent of Republicans.

“We hear every day that far-left indoctrination in schools is a top concern for seniors and AMAC members,” said AMAC Chief Executive Officer Rebecca Weber. “What this survey makes clear is that the parents’ rights movement has incredible potential to grow even bigger, and to unify voters of every age, in every community. The grassroots backlash we saw in Virginia last November may have been just the beginning.”

In addition to requiring counseling sessions conducted by left-wing activists for students who refuse to embrace extreme gender ideology, the Biden plan would force schools to allow biological males into girls’ locker rooms and restrooms (and vice versa) and would even require schools to allow biologically male students identifying as transgender to bunk with girls on overnight trips—all without informing parents. As recently reported in Vermont, female athletes are changing in one-stall bathrooms to avoid biological males harassing them in the girls’ locker rooms.

The AMAC Newsline poll question focused only on voters’ views on the mandatory counseling aspect of the Biden plan and did not include the mandatory training or education components, nor the plan for Title IX coordinators to act as investigator, judge, and jury (a clear due process violation) of any alleged violation under the new definition of sexual harassment, all again with no requirement to inform parents.

When broken down by age, only millennials aged 25-34 supported forced counseling in any sizable numbers. Even among this group, the Biden proposal was underwater, with 42.2 percent in favor and 57.8 percent opposed.

Every other age group rejected the gender-indoctrination plan overwhelmingly. In one of the survey’s most interesting findings, 92.7 percent of voters aged 18-24 disagree with the Biden proposal—the strongest opposition of any cohort. This result may suggest that the generation with the most personal experience of the left’s coercive and punitive gender indoctrination in schools is also the group most turned off by it—even more so than their parents.

Among voters aged 35-44 (a group capturing many parents of young children), 91.1 percent disagreed with the plan, along with 79.8 percent of the 45-64 age cohort, and 85.8 percent of voters 65 and older. Men and women reject the policy at approximately the same rate—with 80.3 percent of women and 83.6 percent of men answering “No.”

With only weeks to go before the midterm elections, the AMAC Newsline poll may be surfacing a powerful late-breaking campaign issue, and the next flashpoint between the radical left and the growing movement for parents’ rights.

Democrats may oppose the idea and the legislation, but say that will not change who they vote for.

That’s what they say on every single policy decision they disagree with, whether it is open borders, or defunding the Police. The only conclusion has to be, Democrats don’t vote on policy unless it is on more handouts (which 98% of Democrats agree with).

This is just the continuation of the childrens education, in “re-education camps”. The whole system seems to be changing to a re-education camp, instead of a school.

This has been going on for years by the “politically correct” crowd. Now they are just becoming more flagrant with their methods of control. The Department of Education needs defunded. They are trting to indoctrinate all of the students to be politically correct in every thing they do, now with pro-nouns.

The education of our children was one of the original reasons for the founding fathers created the system they did. But now, the left has used it to indoctrinate the students into their way of thinking, completely throwing the parents by the wayside. I am sure our founding fathers are rolling in their graves.

Just like the sex change procedures being conducted on children w/o parental consultation, abortion w/o parental consultation and now this. How many rights to our children best interest are being stripped from us. The left is a clear and present danger to this country and leftists should be labeled as domestic terrorists just like they label parents who disagree with school boards across this country.

How many times should we be reminded that Biden has “never done anything correctly”. Leave the raising of children up to the parents. Government needs to focus on Freedom and Safety of our citizens. Politicians seem to forget that they are employees of the citizens who pay their huge salary but get little in return for the cost.

Amac a very informative article. It pours gasoline on the fire of the peoples hearts. This is not name calling, slander, but facts that needs to be heard. With the facts that stir the hearts of the people they will go to the poles and vote in masses against the destruction of their children. I’m sure that there are some that will still vote for whoever the dems run. But this will be for the midterms and if we win that maybe we can turn our direction back to its constitution rights. One of my favorite scriptures says. My people which are called by My name will humble themselves seek My face turn from their wicked ways and pray then will I hear from Heaven and heal their land….this is my prayer for our country. Would you please join me in this prayer for our country, because He wants to heal us and our land. We have nothing to loose and everything to gain. He is waiting with open arms to all who come. Thank you.

I think the ones that need the counseling are the Democrats that cant define what a women is, and Transgenders who have a mental illness along with their parents.

What they have done is cause me to suggest “HEY YOU” which would cover any situation. There are other gender-neutral phrases but they fall into the category described as “four-letter”.
And there are several sexual descriptions that can be gender-neutral. I wonder if that would satisfy Joe and his handlers.

The democrat party has quickly become the “new” Nazi party. Hitler would be proud of his “proteges”.
Hitler once opined: “Give me your children for 8 hours a day and they’re mine forever.” IE: “public” schools? “Universities”? Brain wash central. No true American history taught, threatening to literally steal our investments, threatening to go after our bank accounts, no truth in anything. Government funded infanticide, trashing of our Constitution and Bill of Rights…NOT suggestions, literally going after our Christian churches and heritage, a weaponized FBI, jack booted ATF, now a weaponized IRS??!!
The “media” dole’s out bits and pieces of what to expect next in the dismantling of our once Constitutional Republic…We The People must put those pieces together and understand that flat out, this country is being hijacked from it’s citizens. This regime has flat out declared war on everything we as Americans hold dear!

Well said Denise. You know what we are a constitutional republic. We are on a war,and it was declared last month by the sitting president against all who voted for president Trump. Would you please read my above post and join me and others in the war in the spirit realm, it’s one we can win. Thank you.

Biden, (he, she, them, it, whatever) can’t force anyone to not say the truth. Unless he, it , whatever, puts them or whatever in a re-education camp. Did I hear someone say that may be coming?
