Poll finds self-censorship on the rise across political groups. A disturbingly high percentage of people polled earlier this month think private political donations should be grounds for getting fired. The number was especially high among respondents under age 30, with 44 percent of the youngest group saying business leaders who donate to Donald Trump should be fired and 27 percent saying the same for execs who give to Joe Biden. Meanwhile, 62 percent of all respondents said they’re reluctant to share their political views for fear of offending others—up four points from when the same question was posed in 2017.
Those are a few of the findings in a new national poll conducted by the Cato Institute and YouGov.
