Fox News poll: Political correctness has gone too far, NFL fumbling

in the vicinity


NFL decides new anthem policy, promises penalties for kneeling

The NFL has announced a new policy which they are adopting, that would be fine the teams and the League staff will not ” stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem.’

Has gone the political correctness too far in the United States? Most of the voters say Yes-and think that it hurts, often in the country.

By a 68-19 percent margin, the latest Fox News poll, voters place the feeling of political correctness “too far.” This is about the same as last fall, when it was 66-23 percent (September 2017).


And the voters can see, fallout: almost half, 46 percent, believe, political or executives often make poor decisions because they are worried thinking about politically correct, and a further 34 per cent, it happens “sometimes.” Fifteen percent think it is “very often” or “hardly ever.”

However, the opposite is true: when voters are asked about themselves. When asked, how often do you stop to tell yourself something because you think someone might call you “racist” or “sexist,” 63 percent say “not very often” or “hardly ever.” Much less believe, that you “edit” (12 percent) or “sometimes” (23 percent) and their comments.

Among Republicans, the majority of the country feel to PC (83 percent), and almost all think that managers meet on a regular basis bad decisions out of fear, politically incorrect (89 percent). Less Democrats, although still a majority feel the country is also censored (55 percent), and think that top people make bad decisions because of it (72 per cent).

There is not much difference between most of the major groups on the self-censorship, except when there are ums age: voters under 45 years of age (45 percent) more likely than those ages 45 and older (28 percent) , “bleep” yourself.

NFL-down but not out

The National Football League got sacked, again, by a low favorability rating, only a few weeks after the League, the may 23 announcement of the national anthem, as a rule.

The NFL’s popularity continues to lose ground, with 42 percent of the League considered in a positive light, compared to 46 percent in 2017, and 64 percent in 2013.

The survey also marks the first time more voters have a negative view of the organization (43 percent unfavorable) as a positive – even if only by a percentage point.

The NFL is the new national anthem, as a rule receives 61 percent approval rating, in spite of the low opinion of the League.

A third (33 per cent) do not agree with the “players on the field before the games, during the national anthem.”

Black voters (56 percent) are twice as likely as white voters (28 percent) like the new rule, and five times as many Democrats (54 percent) than Republicans (10 percent) decline.

“The recent controversies seem to be — dealing with sexual assault cases, brain trauma controversy, the anthem is a Problem to have — their toll on the attitudes towards the NFL as an institution,” says Republican pollster Daron Shaw, who conducts the Fox News poll with Democrat Chris Anderson. “These attitudes do not necessarily mean that people will not watch or go to games, but they are clearly a cause for concern between NFL officials.”

The NFL is still well with his base. Among the self-identified football fans, almost two-thirds view, the League is positive (64 percent favorable vs. 31 percent unfavorable), and 60 percent are in favour of the new anthem of the rule.

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1001 randomly selected voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from June 3-6, 2018. The survey has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters.
