While the Mainstream Media and Democrats (and some Southern Baptists) are lobbying for Critical Race Theory, most of America isn’t interested in the Marxist ideology.

Newsweek reported that a poll from the Economist/YouGov released this week showed 58 percent of the participants surveyed “find the controversial curriculum somewhat or very unfavorable.”
The report surveyed 1,500 Americans and asked questions such as how much they have heard of CRT and what they thought of it overall.
An overwhelming majority of Democrats are in favorite of the curriculum. 86 percent of them said they had a “somewhat favorable” or “very favorable” opinion on it. On the other side, only 6 percent of Republicans had the same opinion, and only 20 percent of Independents agreed with the Democrats.
In terms of CRT’s large-scale effects, 55 percent of Americans believed it is bad for the country, and 37 percent think it’s good.
This isn’t the first time the Left has attempted to hijack public education. One of the most obvious projects in recent years is the New York Times’ 1619 project, which took on a similar Marxist view of America’s history while attempting to rewrite the past.
Unsurprisingly, Southerners are the most opposed to CRT at 58 percent saying they find it “very unfavorable.”
Social media, politicians and celebrities are cramming the theology down the public’s throats. However, it appears that CRT isn’t as popular as mainstream sources would have you believe.
