A new poll confirms most Americans are done with Covid – and vaccine mandates

Slippage among the worried men and women.

More than half of Americans now OPPOSE vaccine mandates, according to the poll, which Monmouth University released this morning. About 60 percent say they are “worn out” from Covid.

And support for President Biden’s handling of the pandemic has crashed, from 62 percent in April to 46 percent today.

The poll:


“Striking erosion in support for mandates.”

Only 46 percent of people said they supported “requiring people to show proof of vaccination in order to go to work in an office or setting where they are around other people,” compared to 50 percent who opposed such a rule. That’s a reversal from September, when 53 percent supported a mandate, while 45 percent opposed it.

“Vaccine hesitancy . . . rising slightly.”

About 22 percent of American adults are not planning to get the vaccine, compared to 20 percent in November.

“A final note”:

When asked if they were afraid of catching a new variant, 51 percent of vaccinated people said yes.

The figure was even higher among the boosted – 66 percent.

But only 12 percent of the unvaccinated were afraid.

For the whole poll, go here.
