Poll Shows Large Majority Willing To Pay Up To 100% More For Economic Nationalism

This is interesting, however, I’m actually going to take a ‘climate change’ road on it

Poll: Up to 94 Percent of Americans Want Economic Nationalist Overhaul in Wake of Chinese Coronavirus Crisis

Up to 94 percent of American voters say they want an economic nationalist overhaul of the United States’ economy in the wake of the Chinese coronavirus crisis, a survey reveals.

A survey conducted by FTI Consulting finds that American voters overwhelmingly want economic nationalist policies implemented — including more tariffs on foreign imports, mandatory country-of-origin labeling, and a requirement that goods be made in the U.S.

In total, about 66 percent of Americans support increasing tariffs on foreign imports while only 34 percent want more free trade agreements between the U.S. and other countries.

Likewise, 76 percent of Americans said they are willing to pay 5 percent to 100 percent more for U.S.-made products over products made overseas. Just 24 percent said they are not willing to pay more money for U.S.-made products.

The poll shows that Americans are increasingly growing tired of their goods being made in China. Today, about 4-in-10 Americans say they will not buy products imported from China. A plurality of about 34 percent of the 60 percent of Americans who said they will still buy products from China said they will do so but do not like the fact that they are made in China.

Where does the 94% come from?

About 94 percent of Americans said they support requiring labels on each product that indicates all of the countries where the product was designed, manufactured, and assembled and indicates what percentage of the product was made in each country. Only six percent oppose the requirement.

Most labels already have nation of origin. Regardless, the point of implementing tariffs is not to increase the cost of goods here in the U.S., but to sway other nations to remove their tariffs on U.S. goods.

I will say, though, that much like with ‘climate change’ policies, I’m betting this is more of a theoretical issue vs in practice. Meaning that people will say now that they are willing to pay more rather than actually willing to pay more. They might go for 5-10% more. Maybe even up to 20% more, depending on what they are buying, for products made in the U.S. More than that? Doubtful. Are they willing to pay 20% to 100% more for that “domestic” vehicle that is actually made in Mexico or Canada? How about doubling the cost of a new TV or smartphone?

Just remember, what Trump wants is not increased prices, but China and other nations to open their markets for American goods. A level playing field.

    CHINA IS THE SCOURGE OF THE EARTH. NOT THE PEOPLE….THE COMMUNIST DICATORSHIP that murders millions of their people annually, puts out dangerous and faulty goods and will do anything to steal technology to further its cause.

    The country went from dirt farmers to landing men on the moon and stealth technology in 30 years. The country has bought and paid for US universities to become hotbeds of (contrived)racism and anarchism while paying professors to steal our technolgy and cook the books on AGW to drive a wedge into the heart of western capitalism while they themselves destroy the planet.

    and now we have this:

    Wang Yi, the Chinese foreign minister, said Sunday that the U.S. should “give up on its wishful thinking of changing China” and avoid bringing the two countries to a “new Cold War.”
    “China has no intention to change, still replace, the United States,” he said, according to the Washington Post. “It is time for the United States to give up it’s wishful thinking of changing China and stopping 1.4 billion people in their historic march toward modernization.”

    CHINA HAS NO INTENTION. We have had Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama all try to appease China and NK. And the only thing we have gotten out of it is they stole all our technology, have paid, literally paid our university campuses to become hotbeds of communist propaganda spreading hateful lies that the Right is racist.

    See China saying America is racist for calling it the WUHAN FLU…then The left jump on the bandwagon and accuse Trump of being a racist for saying a flu that orginated in WUHAN is the Wuhan flu.

    They have probably 1000’s of professors secretly on their payroll. Teaching YOUR KIDS that AMERICA SUCKS DICK.

    Then their is the 50 cent army saying the same things.

    Yeah People in this country need to wake up and take GOOGLE and their IPHONES and SHOVE IT UP CHINA’s ass.

      What Americans do not realize is that China has bought up about 1/2 of America’s ability to feed itself. Ever wonder why the meat packing plants have become such a hotbed of the WUHAN SCOURGE.

      Yeah that would be In America we send the meat to CHINA WHERE IT IS PROCESSED then it is sent back to the USA to be packaged (So they can claim it is made in America.) I surmise that along with the beef comes a nice little bonus. WUHAN FLU. Now the government would never tell you that but how else can we explain the 80 percent infection rates in meat packing plants where their meat is coming from CHINA?

      Incidentally anyone ever questioned trump on our masks and PPE lately? No? Well China is again denying any PPE being shipped out of country and since 3MMM a once great American Institution is now owned and operated by CHINA…guess where all our masks are?

      AS for 100 percent tariffs on Mexico or Canada. I don’t think in a nutshell this is the peoples beef. Mexico and Canada and Europe is not communist, not trying to dominate the world, not trying to steal our technology, not trying to buy our proffessors and stir unrest in the USA.

      That would be CHINA. I think this poll was directed towards China when we realize that they are sending so many kids to America to steal our secrets and to spread disinformation and lies, their baby formula and dog food kills our children and our pets and the FDA inspects ONE PERCENT of what comes from CHINA and only inspects about 5 percent of the factories in CHINA with a long warning time to give CHINA time to clean up the plant before we show up.

      CHINA IS PURE EVIL. I would pay double, what I pay now to see the CCP die. Not The chinese people….the commies that are threatening the entire planet. I want them to modernize, have wonderful lives and become productive world citizens. I want them to have freedom and peace and harmony.

      I want the CCP GONE and every member rounded up and put in the same gulags they have 2 million Muslims in right now.

        Although this is a right-wing conspiracy tale, it is untrue.

        Ever wonder why the meat packing plants have become such a hotbed of the WUHAN SCOURGE?

        SARS-CoV-2 is spread by close contact between humans, such as in packing houses.

        There is no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 comes to the US on imported meat.

        3MMM a once great American Institution is now owned and operated by CHINA

        3M Corporation is not owned and operated by CHINA. Like most multinational corporations, 3M DOES have facilities in CHINA.

        China IS a threat to the US and the world, largely due to the demands of 1.4 BILLION people, nearly 20% of the world’s population, and their opening to outside investment, industrialization, modernization, resultant growing GDP AND the control by the Communist Party. But we will not “defeat” China in any real sense and will have to co-exist while protecting ourselves from their overreach.

          Senators Call for Reshoring of Manufacturing During “Crisis Brings Consensus” Event

          And there’s bipartisan agreement that significant change is needed to get the job done.

          Video confirmation detailing reports regarding the Chinese Govt’s nationalization of the 3M Company in China. All 3M factories and products were seized by the Chinese Military for use in China.

          Why is WUHAN FLU spreading in meat packing plants and nowhere else? In the packing plants they are now wearing N95 masks, gowns and face shields and yet they are sick at astounding rates.

          I find it comical that you are now defending the very companies you want to destroy for your communist agenda simply because it exposes CHINAS tentacles in America.
