Results for - What happens when a 20 year democrat attends a Trump rally? (Part 3 of 4)
2,302 voters participated in this survey
This is the third survey in a series about a reporter, Karlyn Borysenko (a Democrat who thought she'd never be caught dead at a Trump rally). If you haven't already, please take a moment to review the first two surveys (both titled the same as this one - What Happens When a 20 Year Democrat Attends a Trump Rally). Once you have read over the previous survey questions, you will be better prepared for taking this survey.
1. Are you familiar with the story up to this point (from the first and second surveys in this series) about Karlyn Borysenko wishing to attend a Trump rally - just out of curiosity?
2. Ms. Borysenko explains about preparing to go to the Trump rally: "I'm not going to lie, I was nervous, so I thought I would start my day in familiar territory: at an MSNBC live show that was taking place a few blocks away from the rally. I decided to wear my red hat that looks like a Trump hat but with one small difference — it says "Make Speech Free Again"—as my small protest against cancel culture. I even got a photo with MSNBC host Ari Melber while I was wearing it, just for kicks." Were you aware that MSNBC is politically liberal and somewhere that Democrats feel as if they are in "familiar territory"?
3. "The funny thing about that hat is that it's completely open to interpretation. When I wear it around left-leaning people, they think I'm talking about the right. When I wear it around right-leaning folks, they think I'm talking about the left. It's a stark reminder of how much our own perspectives and biases play into how we view the world." If you saw someone wearing a red, "Make Speech Free Again" hat, would you take offense - or would you accept it as an agreeable political stance?
I would take offense if I saw someone wearing a red "Make Speech Free Again" hat
"Make Speech Free Again" is a reasonable political statement and I would not be offended
I'm not sure how I would feel if I saw someone wearing such a head covering
4. Ms. Borysenko then goes into describing how it seemed that EVERYONE was concerned about her safety at the rally - Democrats were concerned that the Trump supporters would attack her if they found out she was a Democrat and conservatives were concerned for her safety due to the attacks from Democrats and anti-Trump protesters (including Antifa). Who do you think would be more cause for safety concerns at a Trump rally - Trump supporters or protesters?
I would be more concerned about Trump supporters becoming violent if they discovered someone in attendance was a Democrat
Anti-Trump protesters would be more likely to cause problems at a Trump rally
I don't think there would be any safety concerns at a Trump rally
5. "So, I headed over an hour and a half before the doors were scheduled to open—which was four hours before Trump was set to take the stage—and the line already stretched a mile away from the entrance to the arena. As I waited, I chatted with the folks around me. And contrary to all the fears expressed, they were so nice. I was not harassed or intimidated, and I was never in fear of my safety even for a moment. These were average, everyday people. They were veterans, schoolteachers, and small business owners who had come from all over the place for the thrill of attending this rally. They were upbeat and excited. In chatting, I even let it slip that I was a Democrat. The reaction: "Good for you! Welcome!" Are you surprised to hear that those waiting to get into the Trump rally were so friendly and welcoming to Borysenko - even after learning that she was a Democrat?
