MAGA Extremist Vivek Ramaswamy Booed for Calling Climate Change a “Hoax”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a move that underscores the fact that climate is a kitchen table issue across the political spectrum, the first question from a Republican voter in the first Republican presidential primary debate was about whether these candidates would take action on climate change. What’s more, the right-leaning audience let out an unmistakable boo when MAGA extremist candidate Vivek Ramaswamy called climate change a “hoax.” The reaction from the crowd makes it clear that climate denial is a losing strategy. Even young Republican voters know that climate change is an existential threat to their futures – any candidate that denies that is fundamentally out of touch with what voters want, and with reality.
According to Navigator Research, Ramaswamy’s climate “hoax” remarks caused voters’ attitudes about him to drop – particularly among women.
