Mississippi’s top health official says he does not think political party affiliation has an impact on people’s willingness to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
From what I’ve been reading, it has everything to do with it.
Least vaccinated U.S. counties have something in common: Trump voters.
That probably has to do with Trump saying the virus is a hoax and FOX news agreeing with him.
U.S. counties with more Trump voters are less likely to be vaccinated, data shows.
A Quinnipiac University poll found 45% of Republicans said they don’t plan on getting the COVID-19 vaccine, compared to 50% who said they planned to or had.
Meanwhile, a Monmouth University poll from April 14 found political affiliation was the main factor in deciding who chooses to get vaccinated.
43% of Republicans in this poll said they wanted to avoid getting vaccinated while only 5% of Democrats said this.
The New York Times recently examined survey and vaccine administration for all U.S. counties, finding states and counties with high concentrations of people who voted to re-elect former president Trump in 2020 are the most likely to have adults who are vaccine hesitant.
The Time’s data review found that the rate of adult vaccinations was below 1 in 4 in U.S. counties where Trump beat Biden by a 50 point or higher margin.
62% of the people say Biden is doing a good job addressing the emergency, 31% say a poor job.
