Here’s How Americans Feel About Cancel Culture
A new poll shows that most Americans believe that “cancel culture” unfairly punishes people over their pasts.
The survey defined cancel culture as “the practice or tendency of engaging in mass canceling as a way of expressing disapproval and exerting social pressure.”
A majority of the participants, 69 percent, said cancel culture unfairly punishes people for their past actions or statements, while 31 percent said it does not.
Seventy-nine percent of Republican voters, along with 65 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of independents, specifically, said that cancel culture unfairly punishes people for their past actions or statements.
Additionally, the poll found that 71 percent of registered voters strongly or somewhat believe that cancel culture has gone too far.
