American Seniors, age 50 and above, indicate mixed and strong opinions against government and media since the Biden Administration took over in January 2021.
Their highest concerns deal with election integrity, censorship, Biden’s Executive Orders, illegal immigration, securing 1st and 2nd Amendments, healthcare, against globalism, Chinese Communist Party influence, anti-Green Deal and more.
Here’s a look at the latest polls from AMAC, the Association of Mature Americans. Each question is followed by the number of positive votes it received.
Nancy Pelosi wants to create a “9/11-style” independent commission to investigate the January 6th riot at the Capitol. Do you think this is a good idea?
YES, as long as there is no stonewalling on release of details and the public can expeditiously get accurate information, including details of those injured/killed; what D.C. politicians/officials knew of the possibility of violence beforehand; and why the National Guard’s role was limited.
NO, using the term “9/11-style” only serves to inflame the public and characterize Trump supporters as domestic terrorists; any investigation should have taken place before the 2nd impeachment proceedings.
Democrats are racing to pass H.R. 1 / S. 1, the For the People Act of 2021. This bill equates to a partisan, federal takeover of elections and contains many egregious components including undermining states efforts to clean up their voter rolls, prohibiting states voter ID requirements, virtually eliminating any restrictions on vote-by-mail and severely limiting First Amendment rights of free political speech. How familiar are you with this legislation?
I am aware of this bill.
I’ve heard of this bill, but am not familiar with it.
This is the first I’m hearing of this bill.
One of Joe Biden’s early Executive Orders undoes a Trump Administration order that got rid of 4.3 regulations for every new one created. The Trump order reportedly saved households an average of $3,100 a year.
How do you think Biden’s action will affect the economy?
This will significantly affect the economy. Biden’s action gives regulators free reign to impose any new rule on businesses and households that they choose on anything and everything they do, regardless of the cost.
This will have little effect on the economy and the potential new wave of regulations will lead to income equality, less climate change and better public health.
This will not affect the economy because the safety and health benefits we receive from regulations far outweigh their costs.
Telemedicine is the practice of providing healthcare for patients remotely using technology when physician and patient are not physically present with each other. Which is most accurate?
I have participated in a telemedicine visit, and I would again.
I have participated in a telemedicine visit, but I would prefer not to do it as a rule.
I have not participated in a telemedicine visit, but I am open to it.
I have not participated in a telemedicine visit, and I have no intention or interest in it.
Has your view of President Trump changed since the breach of the U.S. Capitol and subsequent violence that occurred at the Save America Rally on January 6th?
No. This was a peaceful gathering that spiraled out of control when extremists set on destruction incited violence and the riot had nothing to do with the President’s rally speech.
Mixed. I have supported most of the President’s policies and believe, on the whole, he has an excellent legacy. But, the rioting made me step back a bit and take pause.
Yes. I believe the President is responsible for the riot and could have done more to avoid it.
What should be the highest priorities of the legislative agenda for the 117th Congress?
Removing Section 230 legal immunity protection for “Big Tech” to eliminate censorship of conservative voices on social media
Speeding Vaccine Access to those that want it
Infrastructure to fix crumbling roads and bridges nationwide
