CWN Editor's Note: Most Americans who identify with the Democratic party would favor enforced penalties for those who are not vaccinated, according to a new Rasmussen poll.

The poll also found that many Democrats—although not a majority—would favor prison terms for the unvaccinated, and even removing children from their custody.

Rasmussen found that 77% of self-identified Democrats support President Biden’s campaign for vaccine mandates, but only 22% of Republicans.

Among the poll results:

  • 55% of Democrats favor fines for the unvaccinated;
  • 59% say the unvaccinated should be “confined to their homes”—essentially under house arrest—except in emergencies;
  • 48% say government should be allowed to fine or imprison people who question the effectiveness of Covid vaccines;
  • 45% would approve a plan to let the unvaccinated “temporarily live in designated facilities or locations” (internment camps?) and
  • 29% would endorse “temporarily removing parents’ custody of their children if parents refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine.”
