Here’s Why So Many Republicans View America’s Colleges And Universities Negatively

Many of them have seen or experienced the detrimental results of campus protests, a growing PC culture, and catastrophic student debt.

While 55 percent of the electorate still believe colleges and universities are having a positive impact on our country, a majority of Republicans (58 percent) now believe the opposite, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center. Their findings—pulled from polling conducted among 2,504 adults—suggest a considerable chasm in the perceptions of higher education between Republicans and Democrats. More than 70 percent of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents reported a favorable view of America’s colleges and universities.
