Huge numbers of Americans say that companies with which they do business should be neutral politically.
The results are from two polls, one by Summit.org, in partnership with McLaughlin and Associates. It surveyed 1,000 general election voters June 15-19 and found 73% of all respondents with an opinion on the issue said they prefer companies that remain neutral on political and social issues.
Barely one in four, 27%, wanted the companies where they shop to be activists.
A report from Decision Magazine explained Summit.org chief Jeff Myers said, “Bud Light, Target and the Los Angeles Dodgers have found out the hard way that huge numbers of their customers don’t support what they consider to be ‘woke’ values.
“This poll shows how big the issue is: nearly three-fourths of Americans say they don’t like it when businesses weigh in on controversial issues, and more than half support boycotts of companies that take political or cultural stands. CEOs and companies have a choice to make: continue virtue signaling to the progressive left minority and in turn alienate most Americans, or return to doing what companies do best—staying in their lane and providing products and services their customers want.”
That poll showed 52% of respondents with an opinion on the issue said they supported plans to boycott businesses that take public stands of those issues.
In recent days, that’s been the LGBT ideology being promoted by Joe Biden. He’s attempted to install that belief system in America’s military, education and social systems.

Decision reported, “In a similar survey of 1,088 likely voters, conducted June 5-9 by the Trafalgar Group for the Convention of States Action, 61.9% said that businesses should ‘seek to be neutral on cultural issues.'”
That includes nearly 82% of Republicans and 37% of Democrats.
In that assessment, the report said, 40.8% confirmed they had participated in a boycott over a company’s “progressive or woke” positions on social issues.
Some 24% claimed to have boycotted a company for “conservative” stances.
“Every corporate board room should be very alarmed at these poll results. American voters simply want businesses to provide products and services and not be a megaphone for political activism—especially radical activism from the left,” explained Mark Meckler, chief of Convention of States.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It’s hard to believe it’s really happening, but it is. Male athletes pretend to be females, dominate their sports, and are thereby rapidly destroying women’s competitive sports worldwide. Convicted male criminals suddenly claim to be transgender so they can be confined in a women’s prison and sexually abuse the female inmates there. Men claiming to be female likewise invade women’s locker rooms, bathrooms, schools, dormitories, sororities, shelters, spas and social organizations – and in the process steal women’s scholarships, advancement, honors and myriad other opportunities.
Meanwhile, transgender groomers and recruiters in schools and on social media platforms like TikTok are continually feeding and expanding the current “mass hysteria” craze that has already led countless teen girls to take testosterone and undergo double mastectomies in a pathetic effort to become boys. No wonder the CDC reports 3 in 5 teen girls say they feel “persistently sad or hopeless” and almost 1 in 3 say they have seriously considered committing suicide.
All of this on top of the radical left’s renewed obsession with killing women’s unborn babies via abortion.
The “woke” left’s maniacal attack on women and girls, virtually unreported by the rest of the media, is the entire focus of the sensational June issue of WND’s critically acclaimed WHISTLEBLOWER magazine, titled “THE LEFT’S TOTAL WAR ON WOMEN.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
