In an unexpected turn of events, GOP Presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy found his LinkedIn account restricted for posts about climate change and China, a move which he attributes to censorship. This situation unfolds even as recent polls reveal that Ramaswamy ranks third among Republican primary voters, trailing behind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former President Donald Trump. Ramaswamy, renowned entrepreneur and author of "Woke, Inc.," had his LinkedIn account put on hold for over a week due to three posts that LinkedIn adjudged offensive. Ramaswamy took to Twitter on Thursday morning to share a screenshot of an email he received from LinkedIn on Tuesday, which informed him of his account restriction for "repeatedly sharing content that contains misleading or inaccurate information." In his tweet, Ramaswamy sought clarity on LinkedIn's decision, enquiring, "Can you please clarify what is misleading in any of these statements made?" A LinkedIn official responded on Wednesday, asserting their platform's intolerance towards "misinformation, hate speech, violence or any form of abuse." A LinkedIn spokesperson later confirmed that the account was mistakenly restricted and had been reinstated but failed to elaborate on the nature of the mistake. Ramaswamy took the incident as a warning, expressing his concern, "If they can do it to me, they can do it to anyone." He criticized the seeming censorship of his fact-based opinions on climate policy and China-related policy, including lawful criticism of President Biden, by a Microsoft-owned social media company. [tweet_embed]May 26, 2023[/tweet_embed] He criticized the unholy alliance between big tech and the left, arguing that it represented a significant issue plaguing America, resulting in the muzzling of voices that the government cannot directly silence. "I was one of the first critics of the government using tech companies to silence speech that the government could not censor directly. It feels like karma that those tech companies are now censoring me for criticizing the government whose hand lurks behind many of their actions," he added. A poll conducted by Cygnal for Ramaswamy's 2024 campaign reveals that Trump leads the GOP primary with 51.5% support. DeSantis follows at 20.9%, while Ramaswamy has secured 4.8% support. Other prominent figures in the Republican nominating contest are former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley at 4.7% and former Vice President Mike Pence at 4.3%. The poll also paints an unfavorable picture of Trump and President Biden among potential general election voters, with negative ratings at 52.1% and 54.6%, respectively. This is a shift from April's polling, particularly among voters in the Northeast and women under 55 who are increasingly viewing Biden unfavorably. DeSantis has a near-even split in his favorability ratings, with 42.3% viewing him favorably and 43.7% unfavorably. Meanwhile, Democrat Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s presidential campaign has a favorable view among 37.6% of potential voters. The poll indicates that the top three issues concerning voters ahead of the 2024 campaign are inflation and the economy (31%), illegal immigration (14.3%), and gun control (13.9%). Interestingly, nearly half of Americans, including most independents, oppose a raise in the debt ceiling without corresponding spending cuts. Furthermore, the poll indicates a widespread belief that the Biden administration isn't adequately addressing the crisis at the southern border. Currently, two-thirds of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track, and only 27% think it's heading in the right direction. The poll surveyed over 2,500 likely 2024 general election voters and carried a margin of error of plus or minus 1.92%.
