Newly released polling data shows that while Elon Musk has stirred up major controversy via his takeover and leadership of Twitter, the American people support him.
Finish the story after this video:
Convention of States Action, along with Trafalgar Group, released the poll, which found that “62.6 percent of American voters with an opinion on the issue support Elon Musk’s efforts to change Twitter to a more free and transparent platform.”
Notably 54.2% of Independents support Musk’s work as well.
Musk has received praise and criticism for taking over the company, unbanning accounts, and expanding free speech on the platform.
“A strong majority of common-sense voters in both parties see what Elon Musk is doing with Twitter and understand it is incredibly good for the country and critical both for free speech and a free society. They understand that transparency is always in everyone’s best interest,” said Mark Meckler, President of the Convention of States. “But what about the voters who register the opposite? Are they opposed to free speech and transparency? Perhaps some are, but we suspect many voters are stuck in the ‘red team v. blue team’ mentality, where they interpret their news based on personality—and whether or not that specific personality is part of their team—rather than looking at policy. We believe a majority of Democrats in this poll oppose Elon Musk simply because they see his actions as harming Democrats.”
