Over the course of the past approximately 19 months, American citizens have faced a series of COVID mandates and restrictions. First, these edicts began with shelter-in-place orders and directives for businesses to shut down.
Eventually came the travel restrictions, mask mandates, social distancing, capacity limitations for businesses, and then vaccine mandates. There isn’t a single mandate that health officials haven’t been in favor of.
In fact, Democrat politicians and the medical community are completely backing these mandates. However, a new poll shows where the American public truly stands today, as it pertains to COVID.
Bad news for supporters of COVID mandates
Individuals who are all for COVID mandates that restrict people’s freedoms and choices are not going to care for the latest poll by Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group.
This poll shows over 63% of Americans believe the pandemic is becoming less serious. Only 26.1% expressed the polar opposite viewpoint. Most Republican and Independent voters are of the view COVID isn’t as serious as it was before; however, only a minority of Democrat voters said the same.
