Why Do Democrats and Young Americans Despise the Constitution?



Unnamed (3)According to a new poll by The Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports, most Democrats and young Americans believe the U.S. Constitution is “racist,” “sexist,” and should be “rewritten.”

In fact, per the poll of 1,025 likely voters, 57 percent of Democrats and 65 percent of liberals believe the Constitution is “rooted in racism,” and 64 percent of Democrats and 69 percent of liberals say the Constitution is “a sexist document that gives men advantages over women.”

Among likely voters aged 19 to 39 years old, a similar pattern emerges. For instance, 49 percent of young voters think the Constitution is awash in racism and 54 percent believe the document is inherently sexist.

Perhaps most concerning, 49 percent of Democrats and 46 percent of liberals think the Constitution “should be mostly or completely rewritten.” Likewise, 51 percent of young voters believe the Constitution should be mostly or entirely discarded and replaced with an updated version.

On the other hand, most Republicans, Independents, conservatives, moderates, as well as middle-aged and older voters continue to hold the Constitution in high esteem.
