A new poll shows Barack Obama was dead wrong on this hot button issue

Democrats are getting more extreme and Americans are turned off by it.

Barack Obama campaigned in Virginia, and the Democrat favorite still lost handily.

And a new poll shows Barack Obama was dead wrong on this hot button issue.

Democrats are still reeling after the glorious defeat of former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe to Republican newcomer Glenn Youngkin.

McAuliffe brought out the big guns to campaign for him after it became clear he wasn’t going to be able to walk away with the race.

And during one Barack Obama stump speech, the former President showed how he does not have his finger on the pulse of the nation.

Obama said, “We don’t have time to be wasting on these phony, trumped-up culture wars.”

Except culture war issues are precisely what Americans are concerned about, and a recent poll proves it.

The Media Research Center reports:

[A] national Rasmussen survey of 1,000 American adults conducted in the two days following Obama’s claim shows that a strong majority disagree with the former president.

“Should parents be concerned about transgenderism and Critical Race Theory in public schools, or are these basically phony issues?” Rasmussen asked.

A solid majority of 57% said that, yes, parents should be concerned. Just 27% called transgenderism and Critical Race Theory in public schools “phony issues.” Sixteen percent weren’t sure.

Only about a quarter of whites (28%), blacks (23%) and other minorities (25%) believe parental concerns about transgenderism and CRT in public schools are phony issues.

Democrats like to play the game of pushing culture war issues relentlessly, and when they get called out on it, they either play dumb or they trivialize the criticism.

Culture war issues are precisely how Democrats have gained political ground over the past several decades.

They enforce their ideas through cultural hegemony until the law catches up.

Now Republicans are deploying the same strategy, and Democrats can’t stand it.

The Media Research Center continued:

In a separate question, Rasmussen asked: “How concerned are you that public schools may be promoting controversial beliefs and attitudes?”

While 76% of American adults said they’re concerned that public schools may be promoting controversial beliefs and attitudes, including 58% who say they are “very concerned,” only 21% said they were not concerned. Majorities across both the political and racial spectrum voiced concern about the controversial teaching of the nation’s public schools.

Instead of looking inward at their practices, Democrats are simply blaming Fox News and right-wing media for creating these culture war issues out of thin air.

But parents are seeing for themselves what’s going on.

At the beginning of the pandemic, leftist teachers got caught expressing concerns about their radical lesson plans being exposed to parents.

The cat is out of the bag, and America’s parents are fed up.
