President Yaroslav Mar released this morning the results of Lostisland Political and Social Stances Poll: the first survey of political and social attitudes of Lostislandic citizens.
The poll, which was open to Lostislandic citizens from 8 to 11 February, consisted of 10 questions covering a broad range of political and social issues, and automatically closed after 40 citizens cast their votes. The votes were recorded anonymously and the poll results will not affect the Lostislandic legislation currently in force.
The results of the poll largely reflect Lostisland’s status as a global community with an absence of a dominant ethnicity and differ from the dominant public opinion in both Western and Oriental countries. The results also indicate that Lostislandians, by and large, do not have a dominant ideology, as most questions failed to demonstrate an absolute majority of opinion.
When asked to describe their stance on a left-right spectrum, 10% of the respondents declared themselves far-right, 17.5% right-wing, and 12.5% center-right. Centrists attribute for 15% of the respondents, 7.5% consider themselves center-left, 12.5% as left-wing, and 10% as far-left. 40% consider themselves broadly right-wing, 30% broadly left-wing, and 15% consider themselves apolitical.
As far as religiosity is concerned, 25% of Lostislandic citizens are very religious, 35% somewhat religious, and 25% religious non-observant, suggesting that 85% of Lostislandians are broadly religious as opposed to 15% who are atheist or agnostic. The poll does not elaborate on which religion the citizens subscribe to.
30% of Lostislandic citizens are strongly pro-life, 12.5% somewhat pro-life, 10% somewhat pro-choice, and 17.5% strongly pro-choice. 42.5% are broadly pro-life, 27.5% broadly pro-choice, while 30% are neutral on the subject.
The subject of drug legalization showed a nearly even distribution of votes, as 12.5% are very positive towards it, 22.5% mostly positive, 20% mostly negative, and 15% very negative. 35% feel broadly positive, 35% broadly negative, and 30% are neutral on the subject.
25% of Lostislandians are very positive about same-sex marriage, 7.5% are mostly positive about it, 7.5% are mostly negative, and 32.5% are very negative. 32.5% of Lostislandic citizens generally support same-sex marriage, 40% generally oppose it, and 27.5% are neutral on the subject.
20% of the respondents are very positive towards laws that require transgender individuals to use bathrooms that correspond to their birth sex (as opposed to how they identify). Another 20% are mostly positive, 5% are mostly negative, and 17.5% are very negative. 40% of the citizens surveyed generally support such laws, 22.5% generally oppose them, and 37.5% are neutral on the subject.
Asked whether they identify as pro-Israel or pro-Palestine, 25% of the citizens answered strongly pro-Israel, 17.5% mostly pro-Israel, 7.5% mostly pro-Palestine, and another 7.5% strongly pro-Palestine. Broadly, 42.5% are pro-Israel, 15% pro-Palestine, 7.5% are against both, and 35% don’t take sides.
The poll suggests that Donald Trump would have been re-elected to a second term had the vote been conducted among Lostislandic citizens, as 52.5% voted or would have voted for him, 20% for Joe Biden, 5% for Joe Jorgensen, 5% for Howie Hawkins, and 17.5% for someone else or wouldn’t have voted. The question about the American election is the only one where an absolute majority was scored.
Only 15% of Lostislandic citizens are very positive about the BLM movement, and an additional 2.5% are mostly positive about it. 12.5% are mostly negative, while 37.5% very negative. Broadly, 17.5% of Lostislandians support the BLM movement, 50% oppose it, and 32.5% are neutral towards it.
42.5% of Lostislandians believe that the mainstream social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) engage in unacceptable political censorship, as opposed to 12.5% who believe that the current moderation policies are too lax, and another 12.5% who consider them fine. 32.5% are either neutral or don’t care about the issue.
