The poll's findings raise questions about whether Republican campaign promises to ban policies at schools and workplaces they denounce as "woke" could boost a contender in the party's primaries but put them at odds with broader public opinion in the general election.

Over half of Americans say “wokeness” means being informed about social injustices. Differences by party and age, however, remain present.

Fifty-six percent of Americans say “wokeness” encompasses being informed, educated on, and aware of social injustices. In contrast, two in five (39%) say “wokeness” involves being overly politically correct and policing others’ words.

A vast majority (78%) of Democrats say being “woke” means being informed, while nearly three-fifths (56%) of Republicans say it means being overly politically correct. Compared to Democrats and Republicans, however, independents are more divided on the definition of “wokeness,” as 51% say it involves being informed and 45% say it means being overly politically correct.

Americans ages 50-64 (48%) are more likely than those ages 18-34 (33%) or 35-49 (37%) to view “wokeness” as being overly politically correct.

    Clearly, progressives and Dems are defensive about being pegged as woke. G'head. Convince yourselves it's a good thing.

    It's more like GOP candidates in general elections need to convince voters it's a bad thing. Not only that, Republicans need to convince voters that it's an important issue that needs to be addressed.
