New polling data shows Americans are fed up with companies pushing woke politics.
Convention of States Action, along with The Trafalgar Group released a new survey of likely 2022 election voters which found that Americans are tired of companies pushing politics.
“The progressive left’s insistence that everybody and everything adhere to their agenda and politics is now coming home to roost,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “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. Unless they want to be continuously in the middle of a culture war, it’s time for companies to leave politics and activism behind, and return to simply providing products and services to their customers.”
The poll also found that “87.1 percent of American 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.”
The poll comes as a slew of big tech and other companies have embraced far-left politics only to see their financial prospects dwindle. Now, companies are grappling with whether to embrace woke politics or save their bottom line.
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.”
