Survey Shows Americans Are Scared to Share Their Politics and Can You Blame Them?!? 11/1/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

This should not come as a shock to anyone that in a new Cato Institute survey, 58% of the 2,300 U.S. adults polled believe the political climate prevents them from sharing their own political beliefs. 71% of Americans in the poll said political correctness as silenced discussions society needs to have.

People are scared to death to share their political views. And can you blame them? If you dare say you are a Trump supporter, then God help you! People are scared they’ll be alienated from society, lose friends, or lose their job just because they have a different political opinion from their co-workers or boss.

It’s sad we live in a culture like this. We are not an adult society. An adult society would be able to respect others opinions and respect the person even if the opinion differs from their own, but in a lot of parts of society, we don’t have that. We have the opposite. People view you as an enemy just because you have a different political viewpoint or vote for the other party.

We have got to start talking to one another and I mean to people that share your views, but those on the other side, and start finding common ground, so we can move our country forward. This hyper political climate we live in isn’t good for anyone in the long run.

America is stronger when we are united.

If you start talking to others, you may find out that you have more in common then you could even imagine.
