Just over one quarter of Americans believe radical Muslim antisemite Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) should be permitted to serve on congressional committees, according to a recently-released survey from The Economist/YouGov.
The survey asked, “In the past, certain members of Congress have been blocked from serving on congressional committees. In your opinion, should the following members of Congress be allowed to serve on congressional committees?” Omar was one of the listed members.
Twenty-seven percent, said “yes,” she should be allowed to serve on a congressional committee. Nearly one-third, 32 percent, said she should not, and 42 percent said they are not sure.
Notably, less than a majority of Democrats, 41 percent, actually believe Omar should be allowed to serve on a congressional committee, while 20 percent said she should not — a sentiment shared by 26 percent of independents and 50 percent of Republicans.
“There is no debate that Ilhan Omar, the face of antisemitism in the Democrat Party, has no place representing American interests on the Foreign Affairs Committee,” Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN) told Breitbart News. “Ms. Omar is an embarrassment to Minnesota and our country.”
