Democrats have been heavily pushing the idea of vaccine mandates. For instance, if you want to go to the grocery store or take a flight, you need to present your papers to be able to do so. Under leftist rule, vaccine cards will be necessary to participate in society even at the most base levels. But according to a new poll, 71% of Americans oppose vaccine mandates.
Many Americans are holding off on getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Some are doing so for religious reasons. Others have a philosophical opposition to them. Some think that there hasn’t been enough testing to make sure they are safe. And more have an issue with the fact that not a single COVID vaccine has received full FDA approval.
TheBlaze reports that Americans want to keep their “personal choice” personal. A new national survey conducted by the Trafalgar Group finds that almost 3/4 of Americans oppose the vaccine mandates Democrats are pushing.
TheBlaze says that vaccine mandates are a real threat if we don’t reach the 90 percent threshold public health officials say we need to reach:
If efforts to persuade the unvaccinated fail, public health officials predict vaccine mandates may be put into effect by businesses and government agencies once the FDA grants full approval to one or more of the vaccines.
But the Trafalgar Group poll indicates there would be strong bipartisan opposition to such mandates.
Republicans are almost uniformly opposed to vaccine mandates, with 87.3% of those surveyed saying taking a COVID vaccine should be a personal choice. Only 7.2% of Republicans said the vaccines should be mandatory and 5.5% were unsure.
But a majority of Democrats are also opposed to vaccine mandates. Just 33% of Democrats say the vaccines should be mandatory while 58.7% say getting vaccinated should be a personal choice.
Those who declined to identify with either major party were also opposed to vaccine mandates, with 67.2% saying vaccination should be a personal choice and 26.5% answering they should be mandatory.
“What it shows is the American people still by and large, including Democrats, are people who think for themselves,” Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States, told BlazeTV Thursday when discussing the results. “They’re not listening to the hundreds of millions of posts on social media pushed by Facebook and all these other tyrannical oligarchs, they’re listening to their own judgment and they trust their own judgment.”
“Overall, it’s very hopeful in seeing that people are still self-governing folks in the United States,” he says. Watch the interview below:
