National Survey of 1,000 American Adults

Conducted April 14 and 17, 2022
By Rasmussen Reports


1* Businessman Elon Musk has made a $43 billion offer to buy the social-media platform Twitter. Would it be good or bad for Twitter if Elon Musk bought the company? Or would it not make much difference?



2* Elon Musk has called himself a “free speech absolutist.” Do social media platforms like Twitter need more free speech, or is it more important for content on social media to be moderated?



3* In 2020, Twitter banned then-President Donald Trump from the platform. If Elon Musk buys Twitter, should he reinstate Trump’s Twitter account?
