Behind the Poll:

Senator Josh Hawley recently gave the keynote speech at the National Conservatism Conference. In that speech, he defended traditional masculinity and criticized pornography. Specifically, he said:

“Still… can we be surprised that after years of being told they are the problem, that their manhood is the problem, more and more men are withdrawing into the enclave of idleness, and pornography, and video games. I found the comment by one young man to the Wall Street Journal particularly evocative, and particularly heartbreaking. He said, ‘I’m sort of waiting for a light to come on so I can figure out what to do next.’ I suspect he speaks for many. And while the Left may celebrate this decline of men, I for one cannot join them. No one should. The crisis of American men is a crisis for the American republic.”

Do you agree with Senator Hawley?
