(PresidentialInsider.com)- According to a recent Suffolk University/USA Today poll released on Monday, after two years, the majority of Americans are beginning to turn against some of the government’s more draconian COVID policies, including closing schools, vaccine passports, and making booster shots mandatory.
The survey found that 65.5 percent of respondents oppose closing schools and moving again to remote learning. Nearly 73 percent opposed the idea of a possible six-week shutdown “to end the pandemic once and for all.”
When asked if they supported requiring booster shots within the next ninety days, 52.9 percent of respondents said they were opposed to the idea. Likewise, 54.5 percent oppose requiring vaccine passports for entry into public spaces.
Sadly, a majority of respondents still support the widely debunked “social distancing” requirement (64.6 percent) and making masks mandatory for public spaces (54.2 percent). So there’s still a lot of work to do.
The media’s endless panic porn on COVID is still having some effect on the public. When asked when they think the United States will get to the end of the pandemic, 32.4 percent said it would take a few years while a chilling 32.3 percent think the pandemic will never end.
Great work, CNN!
Less than 18 percent of respondents believe the pandemic will be over by the end of this year.
Overall, Biden’s approval numbers for his handling of COVID, which traditionally has been the issue Biden has polled well, were not horrible, but not good either. The survey found 47.2 percent of respondents disapprove of Biden’s handling of the pandemic while only 46.9 percent approve.
On Wednesday, Quinnipiac released its latest poll that showed President Biden’s overall approval at a record low of 35 percent. His handling of COVID also reached record lows, with only 40 percent approving and 55 percent disapproving. By comparison, in early February 2021, Quinnipiac found Biden’s approval on COVID was a staggering 63 percent, with only 29 percent disapproving.
