POLL: Parents Of Kids Under 18 Almost Twice As Likely To Vote Republican

'Parents should have more control over their children’s education than they do now...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) According to a poll by PBS, NPR and Marist, parents with children under the age of 18 are almost twice as likely to vote Republican instead of Democrat, The Daily Wire reported.

A poll of 1,300 registered voters, taking place over the course of seven days, asked respondents which major party’s candidate they were likely to support in their district.

60% of parents of school age children selected Republicans, 32% selected Democrats.

When asked about their approval of current President Joe Biden, 61% of parents disapproved and 29% approved.

The Census Bureau estimates that there are currently 63.1 million parents with school-age children living at home in the United States.

These new polls are supportive of the Republican’s movement towards parental rights, which initially emerged as a response to the realization that schools are teaching radical leftist theories about gender and race, as well as closings throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Progressives have been seemingly against the parental rights movement, with statements along those lines costing them turnkey elections.

In a recent appearance, President Biden told teachers that their students are “like [your children] when they’re in the classroom.”

“They’re not someone else’s children, they’re our children,” he argued. “And they are the kite strings that literally lift our national ambitions aloft… Think about it. If you got to do one thing to make sure the nation succeeded in the next two generations, what would you do? I would say, literally, have the best-educated public in the world.”

Randi Weingarten, president of the country’s largest teacher’s union, has also come out against greater parental control in schools, blaming the problems on “right-wing ideologues.”

The poll also shows that young people across the political spectrum are in favor of greater parental control over public education as well, with 46% of respondents agreeing with the statement that “parents should have more control over their children’s education than they do now,” while only 23% disagree.
