In his review of "Death of a Nation,"Variety's chief film critic Owen Gleiberman says, "Dinesh D'Souza goes over the top — of hate, and of truth — in his latest documentary, a radical-right screed that equates liberalism with Nazism." He adds, "Dinesh D'Souza is no longer preaching to the choir; he's preaching to the mentally unsound."

Though the doc currently holds a 0% on review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, it has generated some positive sentiment among conservatives. "This film is a great reminder about what the left really stands for and why conservatives must never stop fighting for freedom and liberty," Stephanie Hamill, a journalist with right-wing publication the Daily Caller, wrote on Twitter.

It also garnered praise from the Trumps, including Donald Trump Jr., who co-hosted a screening of the documentary in Washington D.C. He also tweeted about the film, saying, "It's going to fire up Republicans for the midterms."
