Poll: 75% of Americans Don't Agree With Bernie on Incarcerated Prisoners' Right to Vote

Most Americans don’t support far-left socialist presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders on his extreme stance of allowing prisoners like the Boston Marathon Bomber the privilege to vote, according to a Business Insider poll.

The poll—which received over 1,100 respondents during a two-day period—revealed results that most people probably expected but it also showed that there are people just as extreme as the Vermont senator.

Seventy-five percent (75%) of Americans didn’t back Sanders in his attempt to gain votes by enfranchising all prisoners but the same people were open to giving voting rights to inmates who are not violent. 

For those who looked at Bernie’s stance as the correct outlook on life: 15 percent. 

I’d say only 15 percent, but it’s hard to say only when people are supporting the right to vote for extreme criminals (like rapists, mass murderers, etc.)—while they’re literally in prison. It’s baffling.

But on the positive side of things, the majority of Americans think Sanders' viewpoint is way off.

As Business Insider reports:

Based on our poll, approximately 35% of voters are supportive of enfranchising currently incarcerated people in some capacity, but most of these people aren't willing to go as far as Sanders.

Not being willing to go as far as Bernie is what we call a good thing and most people I interviewed on this subject last week in Alexandria, Virginia thought two things: Sanders was stepping out too far and was most likely pandering for votes.
