SHARE Are we too politically correct? 61 percent of Americans say yes

More Americans than ever say we’ve become a society that’s too politically correct and it’s killing our freedom of speech, a new poll from Rasmussen Reports shows.

The poll shows that 61 percent of adult Americans say we’ve become too politically correct, while 12 percent say we’re not politically correct enough.

Additionally, only 22 percent of those polled said they believe Americans truly do have freedom of speech. Instead, 74 percent of those polled said they have to be careful of what they say, ensuring it’s politically correct to avoid getting themselves in trouble.
