The Cato Institute says 62% of Americans are afraid to share their political views.

According to their nationwide survey, "nearly 6 in 10 (58%) of staunch liberals feel they can say what they believe. However, centrist liberals feel differently. A slim majority (52%) of liberals feel they have to self‐​censor, as do 64% of moderates, and 77% of conservatives. This demonstrates that political expression is an issue that divides the Democratic coalition between centrist Democrats and their left flank."

Think about that - 77% of Conservatives feel they have to self-censor.

And it doesn't end there. A big chunk of the population want executives fired if they donate to a presidential candidate. The survey says that "50% of strong liberals support firing executives who personally donate to Trump. And more than a third (36%) of strong conservatives support firing an executive for donating to Biden’s presidential campaign."
