New polling data shows that the majority of Americans want Tik Tok to be removed after a steady stream of reporting has shown that China has accessed user data through the company.
Convention of States Action, along with the Trafalgar Group, released the poll this week, which found that “58.6 percent of voters support efforts to remove Tik Tok from app stores now that the company has revealed that American’s user data can be accessed by Tik Tok employees in China.”
In fact, only 17.8% of those surveyed oppose having it removed.
“TikTok not only presents a grave national security threat to the United States, but research is also finding it is highly addictive and dangerous for young people. In addition, TikTok is run by ByteDance—a company with close ties to the Chinese Communist Party,” said Mark Meckler, former CEO of Parler and President of Convention of States Action. “A majority of voters agree that TikTok’s digital warfare against the United States must be stopped, and expect Washington,DC—which has the ability to do something about this right now—to take action now to protect our nation, rather than pandering Chinese influence.”
