According to a recent poll, a significant majority of Democrats support government censorship. In Pew Research’s recent censorship poll, 65 percent of Democrats reported they want the government to censor allegedly misleading information online. This shows a 40 percent increase from just three years ago.
The majority of Democrats responded, “the government should take steps to restrict false information, even if it means limiting freedom of information.”
Republicans on the other hand have dropped from 37 percent to 28 percent in support of government censorship. The massive shift by Democrats against free speech indicates Americans are now about evenly split on the issue of state censorship, with just half of all citizens opposing government control of speech.
Partisan divisions on the role of government and tech companies in addressing online misinformation have emerged since 2018. https://t.co/Hy3r5k3LjW pic.twitter.com/8odBmIoQpy
