Of course, convincing someone you hold views you do not actually hold calls for Acting rolls.
Seems more like it would just be a circumstantial bonus to an influence skill, honestly. A general reaction bonus would call for having a reputation for holding such views - a positive Reputation amongst those who share them (and have actually heard of you holding such views, and believe what they've heard), and a corresponding negative Reputation amongst those who find them abhorrent (and have actually heard of you holding such views, and believe what they've heard). The reputation need not be true, of course - perhaps you spread such rumors on purpose to get support from those who share such views (and feel this is worth losing any support you may have received from those who find them abhorrent), or perhaps it's part of someone else's attack on you.
