A new survey has detailed how some Republican students do not feel safe to share their political beliefs on college campuses.

At CPAC President Trump said he intends to do an Executive Order to guarantee students have free speech at universities and colleges. Campuses have become known to be unfriendly towards conservative students.

OneClass conducted a poll of 1500 college students at 207 campuses. The results revealed that 38% of Republican students say they feel unsafe at school at times. and less than half said they feel welcome on their campus. In addition, 55.1% of Republican students are likely to hide their political views in fear of retaliation in comparison to 15.5% of Democrats are likely to hide their political views.

“Republicans are three times more likely than Democrats to feel unsafe on campus for holding their political views,” OneClass’ Jerry Zheng wrote in a statement accompanying the survey, before referencing the recent alleged attack on conservative activist Hayden Williams at UC-Berkeley last month. “The incident at UC-Berkeley isn’t unheard of. News of conservatives on college campuses getting attacked for their political views make the airwaves frequently enough to make conservatives think twice about exercising their freedom of speech.”

In the coming months, we can expect the Free Speech Executive Order to be introduced and help make campuses a place where all views can be heard without retaliation. Protecting First Amendment Rights.
