Poll: 64% Of Americans See ‘Cancel Culture’ As A Threat To Their Freedom

A poll released by The Hill on Monday showed that 64% of Americans believe that “cancel culture” is a threat to their freedom.

The information comes from a Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey released exclusively to The Hill showing that 64% of the respondents to the survey stated “that there is ‘a growing cancel culture’ that is a threat to their freedom, while 36 percent said they did not view it as a threat to their freedom.”

The poll also showed that 36% of respondents said that cancel culture is a “big problem.” Thirty-two percent said it was a “moderate problem,” and 20% said it was a “small problem.” Thirteen percent said it is “not a problem.”

Merriam-Webster defines “cancel culture” as “the practice or tendency of engaging in mass canceling … as a way of expressing disapproval and exerting social pressure.”

The results of the survey reveal a potential growing sense of people being unnerved by recent “cancellations” in the press and culture. Several high-profile “cancellations” have brought the topic up as a main conversation in America, whether it is through the banning of books, such as the decision of Dr. Seuss Enterprises to stop publishing several of Dr. Seuss children’s books earlier this month or the most recent act of Scholastic to pull the “Captain Underpants” spinoff due to its alleged “passive racism.”
