Poll: Americans Say NO to Biden's COVID-19 Mandate

Published in Blog on September 13, 2021 by Article V Patriot

Governors have vowed to sue. Businesses have vowed not to comply. Now, new polling proves that a large majority of Americans have also rejected President Joe Biden's new vaccine mandate.

Nearly 60% of Americans (58.6%) say that the president's new mandates are unconstitutional, according to a new poll from Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group. What's more, 55% of Americans say the mandate sets a dangerous precedent, and 56% say that state governors should fight back in courts.

“The numbers are clear: the American people passionately oppose Biden’s vaccine mandate, and will not tolerate a President elected by the people acting like a dictator or king. They know full well that this precedent will quickly lead to an end to our Republic and the beginning of an oppressive new tyranny,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “Our citizens stand squarely with courageous, principled governors who know this isn’t about health, science, or compassion, it’s a naked political power grab.”

Democrats believe Biden is making the right move, but Republicans and Independents strongly disagree. According to the poll, 68.2% of Independent voters believe the mandate is unconstitutional and 83.5% of Republicans think the same. 

Majorities of Independents also agree with Republicans that governors should fight back and that this mandate sets a dangerous precedent. 

It's also worth noting that the question asks about the constitutionality of Biden's mandate. Over 11% of respondents said they were "unsure" whether Biden's mandate is constitutional, which is understandable given the complexity of constitutional law. 

Whether Americans support the mandate is an entirely different question. Even if Biden's order is technically constitutional, it still isn't right. The president should not have the power to unilaterally force millions of Americans to take the COVID-19 vaccine. Congress might have that power because they represent the American people, but the president certainly does not.

Biden's tyrannical, unconstitutional mandate goes against everything our Founders fought to preserve. It supersedes state sovereignty, it obliterates self-governance, and it proves that the president wants to be a king. 

We must fight back, and the only long-term solution lies in Article V of the Constitution. Article V allows the states to call a Convention of States for the purpose of proposing constitutional amendments. At this convention, states can propose amendments that limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government--including the executive branch.

Amendments can be written, for example, that prohibit the federal government from regulating health care, energy, the environment, and a host of other topics. These issues may require government oversight, but that oversight should happen at the state level, where everyday Americans have a voice.

Overnight, these amendments could eliminate or reduce a host of federal agencies--including bureaucracies like OSHA, the primary enforcement arm of Biden's executive order. 

It's time to fight back. Not with guns or bullets as our Founders did, but with the constitutional tool they gave us. To join the Convention of States movement, sign the petition below!

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
