New Poll: A Third of Americans Support Tech Companies Using SPLC ‘Hate Group’ List to Blacklist Conservatives

Almost a third of Americans actually support Internet companies’ decision to blacklist conservative organizations based on their presence on a “hate group” list published by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

When asked whether “internet companies should use this list as an excuse to censor or suppress mainstream and non-violent conservative groups by denying them access to their services?” a full 32 percent of Americans said “yes.” A larger minority, 43 percent, said internet companies should not suppress conservatives, while a full 25 percent admitted they did not know enough to have a strong opinion.
