An overwhelming majority of Americans feel political correctness has stilted important discourse the nation needs to have, a poll revealed on Tuesday.
When asked if, “The political climate these days prevents me from saying things I believe because others might find them offensive,” 71 percent of respondents agreed, pollsters commissioned by the conservative Cato Institute found.
The answer to that question had a strong correlation to political ID.
Among those who said they were a “strong conservative” or “conservative,” they agreed at rates of 76 percent and 70 percent, respectively.
Among those who said they were a “strong liberal” or “liberal,” they agreed at rates of 30 percent and 45 percent, respectively.
Despite respondents claiming more communication is needed, they seemed to be OK with limiting forms of free speech.
It’s “morally acceptable” to punch a Nazi, according to 51 percent of liberals.
NFL players who don’t stand for the national should be fired, said 65 percent of Republicans interviewed by pollsters.
