2020: Take heart, fellow patriots! – Many Democrats mistakenly believe their dominance in the public debate means they have won the hearts and minds of the electorate. They’re wrong.
According to a recent Cato poll, 64% of moderates and 77% of conservatives self-censor. Both numbers are 7 points higher than a previous poll.
In addition, the only ideological group that feels it now has more freedom to express their political opinions are committed left-wingers. A majority (58 percent) feel free to say what they think.
Left-leaning political views dominate the political discourse, but the only poll or debate that matters is the one that happens on Election Day.
