Campus Bernie Supporters Love Trump’s Tax Plan When They’re Told It Was Bernie’s

College students surveyed about President Trump’s tax proposal could even explain why it was good, but they reverted to skepticism as soon as they learned it was Trump’s plan.

President Trump isn’t popular among college students, but that won’t stop them from embracing his views—provided they don’t know that they’re his. 

That’s precisely what Campus Reform did with students in a social experiment at George Washington University.

The website’s staff proposed President Trump’s proposed tax plan to several millennials who wholeheartedly embraced the pitch as a good one, even going so far as to explain why they thought it was good. They were under the belief that the senator from Vermont had come up with Trump’s provisions as elements of Sanders’ vision for tax reform.

When Trump first made the proposals, they were immediately dismissed as impractical by his opponents on the left.

The liberal students that Campus Reform interviewed expressed support for Trump’s proposed tax credit to make it easier for Americans to have and raise children, and they supported his proposed tax cuts for small businesses. They also supported getting rid of the Democrat-driven estate tax, also known as the “death tax,” which forces heirs and inheritors to pay for what deceased people leave them.

Once the students were told of the ruse and informed that the proposals they supported were a part of Trump’s platform, they said they were surprised by it, but remained wary due to their skepticism of his administration.

    How many members of Congress would fall for this?

    • MLMII

      Not enough to matter I think, at least on the Democrat side.

  • Huskystar

    Proof they have no idea what they believe in~

  • kkruger71

    My main takeaway was how none of them seemed even mildly embarrassed at the end. 50$ said to a person they all went back to MSNBC or Buzzfeed to look up why these things they thought were good are actually negatives.

    wow, that redhead bloke had a massive face-thing . . .wouldn’t you have that off, or is it ‘take me as I differently-abled am’ going on here?

    • Bigislandguy1

      Pretty sure it doesnt affect his character

    Note to parents: Get a full tuition refund.

  • This just shows that their lack of listening and using their own brains is holding then back from developing and normal adults. The leftists are pack animals and as a pack they would follow their leaders off a cliff rather than think for themselves.

      That is what we call indoctrination.

        >The precise mechanics of the indoctrination effect are poorly understood. It is believed that the main stream media generates an electromagnetic field, waves of infrasound and ultrasound, or both in order to stimulate areas of a liberal’s brain and limbic system. The resulting effect varies depending on the intent of the MSM: the victim may suffer headaches and hallucinations, have feelings of “being watched” or paranoia, or come to view the media itself with superstitious awe. Ultimately, the media gains the ability to use the liberal’s body to amplify its signal, manifesting as voices within the victim’s mind.

    Wow – these students actually admit to become
    somewhat biased when it comes to hearing the name Trump – so nice!

    So college CAN teach them how to be rational at least to a degree. Too bad none of them bother to watch the news or keep up on it for themselves to have already known it was Trump’s plan all along. Common core must mean “just follow the common core of a group and don’t question its validity, just do as it does”, lmao. Quit wasting your parents’ or the tax payers money and learn to think for yourselves. Oh wait, they don’t teach you that in the courses you’re taking do they?

      > Too bad none of them bother to watch the news
      They watch the (((news.))) That’s part of the problem.

  • bookish1

    They’re just a bunch of brainwashed children.

  • Vrangsinn

    I’m pleasantly surprised by their response to the truth.

    • MLMII

      Only if it makes a lasting change, which I doubt will happen in 99% of them.

      • Vrangsinn

        If so, it will only eat at their soul. It’s devastating to ignore the truth once you know it.

        It is in their own interest to be intellectually honest with themselves, and in doing so they will help sway others to do the same – making it even less “scary” to join the modern sorely needed renewal of the enlightenment era.

        • MLMII

          I hope that you’re right.

    Kids today have a rough time critically thinking because they have had the 3 pillars of propaganda (msm,entertainment, and education) tell them how to think their entire lives. Thankfully two of them are currently blazing. Now we just need to get to work on the education cesspool
