75% of Americans disagree with Bernie Sanders’ plan to let every US prisoner vote.
Sen. Bernie Sanders: “If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished. They may be in jail for 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole lives. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime, but I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people.”

A Business Insider poll found 75 percent of respondents opposed enfranchising all inmates, with just 15 percent saying they supported it. The poll found about 35 percent supported giving the vote to incarcerated persons in some capacity. Twenty-four percent said violent felons should lose their right to vote permanently.
Sanders said at a CNN town hall last week that even “terrible people” should have the right to vote from prison, after being asked if people like convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should be given back the franchise. More
Most Americans don’t want prisoners to vote. It was a crackpot idea from the king of the crackpots. The Democrats are looking for unique ways to pad the voter rolls.
Bernie won’t change his tune so let’s see how fast the other Democratic nominees now oppose this idea. They just go with whatever direction the wind is blowing.
Maybe Bernie and AOC can move to Venezuela so they can run on their Democratic Socialist ideas?
