14% Favor Ban on Red Hats

Because pro-Trump Make America Great hats are red, a liberal writer suggested recently that Americans should stop wearing red hats in general because they cause anxiety among anti-Trump Americans. A chunk of Americans like the idea of taking red hats off the market for that reason.
