Politics and the Workplace in 2020

A new national survey by the Cato Institute — a libertarian think tank — provides insight into today’s political climate. The poll found that nearly two-thirds (62%) of Americans are reluctant to openly discuss their political beliefs, especially at work. Nearly one-third say they fear their political views could harm their employment.

Substantial numbers of respondents said they would support the firing a business executive who donated his/her own money to a particular presidential candidate. Half of “strong liberals” supported firing Trump donors, while 36% of “strong conservatives” supported firing Biden donors. 8/3/2020
