Political correctness remains an issue of debate. Some people believe that political correctness is appropriate for the sake of not offending others or hurting feelings; meanwhile, there are different folks who oppose political correctness, arguing that it’s censorship and harmful to society.
In today’s climate, the political left has largely embraced political correctness. Meanwhile, the right-wing remains largely against it. This comes as no shock; the divides and tensions between the left and the right have deepened and reached unheard of levels over the past 18 months.
Now, a recent Rasmussen Reports poll shows that across the nation, political correctness is collectively unpopular.
What do Americans really think about political correctness?
Earlier this month, Rasmussen Reports revealed that 65% of the country views political correctness as problematic; by contrast, only 22% of Americans stated otherwise. There also remains a strong belief that political correctness ultimately imperils free speech rights.
