Americans, according to a pollster, now "have reached a national moment of awareness" and are ready to begin boycotting Chinese-made products.
"Previous polling we conducted have repeatedly shown that Americans are taking the threat from the Chinese Communist government seriously and want President Biden and the U.S. government to take decisive action in containing the threat from China," explained Mark Meckler, president of the Convention of States.
"What is notable in this poll though is that Americans are so concerned about the threat posed by the Chinese government that they are willing to take action themselves to restrict China’s manufacturing monopoly that feeds the CCP beast. We have reached a national moment of awareness and understanding."
The newest polling was done by the Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group. The work was done March 20-22 and included responses from over 1,000 likely general election voters.
It showed 78.7% said, "they would be willing to stop purchasing Chinese products as a means to help counter the aggressive actions of the Chinese Communist Party and lessen America's dependence on Chinese manufacturing."
Ten percent said they'd continue buying Chinese products no matter what, and 11% were uncertain.
The loyalty to American products was much higher among Republicans.
A total of 92.1% of Republican voters said they'd join a boycott of Chinese products, but only 74.2% of Democrats were in agreement. Independents ranked even lower.
The pollster reported, "67.1 percent of Independent voters say they would be willing to stop purchasing Chinese products as a means to help counter the aggressive actions of the Chinese Communist Party and lessen America's dependence on Chinese manufacturing. 19 percent are not willing and 13.9 percent are not sure."
A report at Just the News said the results come at a time when tensions between the United States and China are running high.
