New polling data shows Americans are fed up with companies pushing woke politics.
Here’s an excerpt from the Dailywire report:
The survey, conducted by Trafalgar Group and sponsored by the Convention of States, found that 87.1% of respondents said they were somewhat likely or very likely “to stop using a product or service of a company that openly advocates for a political agenda” that they disagreed with. The poll was conducted between April 24 and April 27 and featured 1,080 respondents.
“The progressive left’s insistence that everybody and everything adhere to their agenda and politics is now coming home to roost,” Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action, said in a press release.
“When an overwhelming majority of Americans, from all political backgrounds, say they are now likely to boycott companies they disagree with, it’s an indicator that regardless of what side they choose to take, this is a losing battle for the companies,” he said.
According to the poll, “87.1 percent of American voters say they are likely to quit using a product or service from a corporation that openly supports for a political stance they disagree with.”
The poll comes as a number of huge tech and other businesses have adopted far-left ideology only to see their stock prices plummet. Now, businesses are debating whether to embrace awakened politics or save their profits.
Notably, a key electoral demographic, Independents, agree. The poll found that “82.6 percent of Independent voters say they are likely to stop using a product or service of a company that openly advocates for a political agenda they disagree with. 17.4 percent are not likely.”
Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) has sanctioned the Walt Disney Company for meddling in Florida politics by signing a law stripping the Mouse House of its special tax status.
Gov. DeSantis said in a statement:
“For Disney to come out and put a statement and say that the bill should have never passed and they are going to actively work to repeal it — I think, one, was fundamentally dishonest. But two, I think that crossed the line,”
“This state is governed by the interests of the people of the state of Florida. It is not based on the demands of California corporate executives. They do not run this state. They do not control this state.”
