Most Americans want social media companies to fact-check posts and show when information is incorrect (something Twitter did to two of the president’s tweets about mail-in voting), and to hide posts that encourage violence. Few think any regulation should be left to government, and fewer than one in five support no regulation at all.

A plurality of Republicans agrees that social media platforms should fact check and hide posts that encourage violence. There is also majority support for social media companies deleting or restricting the accounts of those who post false information or hate speech.
