Liberal Students Love Trump's Tax Plan (When Told It's Bernie's)

Campus Reform interviewed college students seeking their opinion on several features of Bernie Sanders' tax plan. They loved it. Interestingly the plan was not Bernie's but rather Trump's.

Enjoy the video.

Details from Campus Reform.

  • President Donald Trump’s proposal for comprehensive tax reform was almost immediately dismissed as heartless and impractical by his political opponents.
  • When the same ideas are packaged under Bernie Sanders' name, however, liberal college students excitedly endorsed them.
  • In anticipation of the 100-day mark of Donald Trump's presidency, Campus Reform asked students at George Mason University to evaluate some of the president's accomplishments.
  • The students predictably blasted things like the "Apology Tour" and stimulus package, even comparing them to Nazi policies, at least until learning that they were actually accomplished during President Obama's first 100 days.

What's Going On

  1. These students are so brainwashed by mainstream media they respond to the person, not the idea.
  2. More fundamentally, the students know nothing of current events or they would not fall for these types of gotchas.

To be fair, we do not know the percentage of students who did not fall for the traps.

However, I strongly suspect the vast majority of the students (and most likely the average person on the street, not just students) would tend react to the person, not the issue.

Mike "Mish" Shedlock

Most of these students are socially liberal. Their economic and foreign policy knowledge is close to zero, on average.


For most students, university is just four more years of the same group-think as high school.

They only go to uni to drink and sh*g all day long.

Perhaps, Shamrock but we just had a little test of it in Georgia. One candidate, Moore, was closer to the policies that Trump ran on. But Trump, himself, endorsed Strange(We can speculate why, perhaps to ingratiate himself to McConnell). So it was a contest of the name or personality versus the actual policies and ideas. And the Trump voters chose the ideas over Trump.
