Poll: Majority Of Americans Think COVID-19 Threat Is Getting Less Serious

The majority of Americans believe the threat of the coronavirus is getting less serious, and a plurality believe President Joe Biden and government health officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci don’t want lockdowns to end, according to a new poll conducted by the Convention of States Action in partnership with The Trafalgar Group.

“Despite the fact that Big Media and Big Tech are working tirelessly to suppress the truth, this poll reveals that most Americans aren’t fooled in the least,” Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action, said. “They clearly see that the pandemic is on a downward trend, and they also understand that President Biden and Dr. Fauci have no intention of easing restrictions and mandates,””

According to the poll, 63.1% of likely voters believe the threat of the coronavirus is getting less serious, with 25.9% saying it’s much less serious, compared to 26.1% who say it’s getting more serious. Nearly 11% said they weren’t sure.

It was 74.5% for Independent voters, which is followed by 71.5 % of Republicans, and 48.9% for Democrats.

Likewise, a plurality of voters, 47%, led by Independents and Republicans, believe the president and Fauci don’t want COVID-19-related restrictions and mandates to end. The largest group was Republicans with 69.2%. 51.2% were Independents, and 26% were Democrats.

The poll comes after Arizona was the first state to sue the Biden administration over Biden’s executive order mandating that private employers require their employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine or potentially be fired, impacting more than 80 million Americans.

It is ineffective because no federal regulation has been published by the agency charged with implementing it. More than 24 Republican attorneys general said they will fight the mandate, claiming it is “disastrous and counterproductive” and will kill jobs in their states.

Still, employees across the U.S. have already been fired or sued over threatening to be fired for refusing to comply with the mandate, and hospitals, police departments and airlines are reporting record number of employees walking off the job at a time when the economy still hasn’t rebounded from last year’s lockdowns.
