Poll: Whopping 73% of Republican College Students Keep Views Secret for Fear of Bad Grades


A new poll released by The College Fix this week reveals that a whopping 73 percent of Republican college students keep their political views secret for fear that their grades will suffer.

Respondents were asked the following question:

Have you ever withheld your political views in class for fear that your grades would suffer?

Out of 1,000 Republican and Republican-leaning students surveyed, seventy-three percent (73%) of respondents who identify as “Strong Republican(s)” said yes. This sentiment was consistent with 71% of “Weak Republican(s)” and 70% of “Independent Leaning Republican(s).”

Seventy percent (70%) overall say they have withheld their political views in class for that same fear.

Even more, students told The College Fix that they purposely have written essays in line with liberal views so their grades wouldn't take a hit. One student that didn’t this year says he received his first “C” grade, ever.

The poll’s findings come as celebrities on the left make calls to publicly shame President Trump donors and supporters.

Most recently, “Will & Grace” co-stars Debra Messing and Will McCormack took to Twitter to demand that the list of attendees for an upcoming Trump campaign fundraiser in Beverly Hills be made public.

McCormack went a step further, saying that he would like to know who will be attending so “the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with.”

McCormack, who is now backtracking on his remarks which critics label as blacklisting, said that he was “misinterpreted in a very upsetting way.”

No, it was pretty clear, as “The View” co-star Meghan McCain pointed out on Twitter Thursday:

No wonder conservative college students are afraid to be themselves and stand up for what they believe in without fear of being punished.
