Poll Finds 62 Percent Of Americans Are Afraid To Express Their Political Views

A significant number of Americans are afraid to express their political views, a new survey has found.

This is not surprising.

We are living in a time when the liberal media singles out individuals for wrongthink and people lose their jobs and income. Cancel culture has gotten so bad that people are terrified of saying the wrong thing.

A new CATO Institute/YouGov national survey found 62% of Americans say the political climate today prevents them from saying what they believe. This is up several points from 2017 when 58% of Americans said they were afraid to share their political beliefs.

“31% of liberals, 30% of moderates and 34% of conservatives are worried their political views could get them fired or harm their career trajectory,” the CATO survey stated.

A recent poll conducted by Politico found that a plurality of Americans believe cancel culture has gone too far.

“There have been shifts across the board, where more people among all political groups feel they are walking on eggshells,” the CATO survey found, adding, “majorities of Democrats (52%), independents (59%) and Republicans (77%) who all agree they have political opinions they are afraid to share.­­”

The survey found there was one group which is still comfortable speaking out. Staunch liberals.

The very people who are driving cancel culture.

This is an affront to free speech.

It’s unAmerican.
