Merriam-Webster of late says “truth” is “the body of real things, events, and facts: actuality,” and “the state of being the case: Fact.”

But a new poll shows that a majority of younger Americans simply don’t believe it.

They believe that each person defines his or her own truth.

A poll from, working with McLaughlin and Associates, surveyed 1,000 likely general election voters nationwide October 12-17.

Its results pushed American pasted the “tipping point.”

Because 55% of Americans 18-29 think “each person determines their own version of truth.”

That opinion also was held by those in other age groups, but the percentage diminished as people got older.

For those ages 30-40, 46% believe each person can pick the truth they like, for those 41-55 it was 35%, for those 56-65 it was 31% and for those over 65, it was 32%.

“The number of Americans who say there is no absolute truth is alarmingly high. But among young adults, we have now officially passed the tipping point. The majority of youth now say that each person determines their own version of truth,” explained Jeff Myers, president of

“The loss of truth has grave consequences for community, justice, a sense of purpose, and mental health. I’m not aware of any civilization that has abandoned reality to this extent and survived. The good news is that Americans still hold out hope that each person can make a difference. If there ever was a time to stand for truth, it is now.”

The poll confirms a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1%.

The poll said overall, 60% of American voters who expressed an opinion on the issue said there is absolute truth, while four in 10 said every one can pick whatever they want to be truth.

The poll also said 81% “of American voters who expressed an opinion on the issue believe that one person standing for their beliefs in a time of crisis has the power to bring change.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?

Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”

Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
