    70% of Americans agree with President Trump

    That political correctness in the US is a serious problem.

    This is not good news for democrats who constantly push this issue.

    An overwhelming majority of Americans (70 percent) share U.S. President Donald Trump’s opinion on political correctness, a new survey has found.

    In the wake of Tuesday’s New York City terrorist attack, Trump slammed political correctness in America and called for Congress to end the diversity visa lottery program under which the Uzbek immigrant charged with terrorism after the deadly truck attack that killed eight people and injured other 12 was granted a green card.

    “We have to get much tougher,” Trump told reporters at the White House following the terrorist attack on Wednesday. “We have to get much smarter. And we have to get much less politically correct. We’re so politically correct that we’re afraid to do anything.”

    Trump’s remarks were met with criticism in the media, but a new survey reveals that a vast majority of Americans actually share the President’s sentiment about political correctness, and at least 58 percent of Americans believe the “political climate prevents them from sharing their political beliefs.”

    The new survey by the Cato Institute found that a whopping 70 percent of American citizens agree with Trump’s sentiment, “I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct,” voiced during the first Republican presidential debate in 2015.

    "...the survey also found Americans willing to censor, regulate, or punish a wide variety of speech and expression they personally find offensive:

    51% of strong liberals say it’s “morally acceptable” to punch Nazis.
    53% of Republicans favor stripping U.S. citizenship from people who burn the American flag.
    51% of Democrats support a law that requires Americans use transgender people’s preferred gender pronouns.
    47% of Republicans favor bans on building new mosques.
    58% of Democrats say employers should punish employees for offensive Facebook posts.
    65% of Republicans say NFL players should be fired if they refuse to stand for the national anthem.
    82% Say It’s Hard to Ban Hate Speech Because People Can’t Agree On What Speech Is Hateful or Offensive"



    I would say that of the 70% that believe PC is harming America most can not define PC speech any better.

    You are missing the point.

    70% in anything is an "extreme positive" for a politician.

    This is 70% agreeing with Trump.

    That alone is bad news for the left.

    It indicates that on some level he is connecting with the American people.

    Your dumb article made the connection to Trump. The Cato survey doesn't say shit about Trump.

    When you use biased sites...they spin the news their way.

    If Trump is one of the 70%, then I will leave it to you to determine what Trump understands PC to be.


    There is nothing in the Cato survey to say what PC is, or what Trump believes PC speech to be, or what the 70% believe PC speech to be.

    What is PC speech?

    You simply accept that the 70% agree with Trump's interpretation of what PC speech is.

    The American people are rejecting the Marxist Left.

    There is a reason the Democrats have lost over 1200 seats nationwide since 2008.

    Political Correctness his a hallmark of Marxism and a direct attack on the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution and obviously the American voters know it.

    Oh c'mon and get serious. You people just call anything you don't like "liberalism" or "Political Correctness."
    Hell it's RW PC to whine about PC and blame all problems on it. The thread and the poll is a fucking joke.

    LOL... define "seats". Let's see how significant that 1,200 "seats" since 2008 is out of the total number.

    Here's some bad news for Republicans. If you are going to base what we should do for America based on polls you have to accept them all. No picking and choosing.

    90% of Americans are for expanded background checks
    75% think the richest earners should pay more taxes
    74% think Global Warming is real

    Do 90% of Americans support background checks for all gun sales? | PolitiFact Wisconsin
