The poll, which was released on Sunday, found that 86% of Democrats have received at least one Covid-19 dose, while only 45% of Republicans have done so. A further 7% of Democrat respondents said they're likely to be vaccinated against the virus, suggesting as many as 93% will eventually get the shots – but just 4% of unvaccinated GOP voters intend to be inoculated, so the Republican jab rate is tracking to top out at 49%.
Overall vaccine hesitancy is rising, which may help explain why President Joe Biden missed his goal of having 70% of US adults receive at least their first Covid-19 shot by July 4. Around 67% of American adults have taken at least one dose, meaning the Democrat president missed his goal by about eight million people, according to CDC data.
WaPo-ABC found that 29% of Americans said they aren't likely to be vaccinated against Covid-19, up from 24% in April. Only 6% of Democrats fall into that category, while 47% of Republicans said they likely won't be inoculated, including 38% who insisted that they definitely won't be.
America's vaccine recalcitrance isn't driven by Republicans alone. Among independents, 35% of respondents said they are unlikely to be vaccinated, including 22% who definitely plan to abstain. Overall, 20% of respondents in every category said they definitely won't get the jabs.
It also appears that being vaccinated against the virus correlates with support for Biden. About two in three vaccinated Americans approve of the president's job performance, compared with one in three among those who haven't been inoculated, the poll showed.
in fearfulness also appear to affect vaccination decisions. While 69%
of Americans overall said they believe they're at low or no risk of
contracting Covid-19, the confidence rate was lower among those who have
already been inoculated. Just 22% of unvaccinated Americans think
they're at risk of getting sick from the virus, compared with 32% of
vaccinated respondents, the poll found.
It is not surprising that vaccine take up in the USA is so low. The trust the U.S. public place in mainstream media is the lowest of any developed country and it seems Americans would rather rely on repoprts in alt_media than the government and corporate propaganda of television and radio news and traditional newspapers for their information. The adverse side effects, warnings of highly respected doctors and medical researchers against accepting untested vaccines that do not make recipients immune to COVID and the apalling number of deaths that have occured within days or even hours of people getting a COVID shot are much more widely known to Americans than inm The UK or Europe, where so many reposts of catastrophic consequences of the vaccine program have been swept under the carpet by governments and mainstream media that the carpet is starting to look like the Himalayas. hat is really surprising however, is the number of supposedly educated people who have allowed themselves to be turned into human lab rats to test a previously abandoned gene therapy sold as a vaccine against a virus to which over 90% of us have natural immunity and among the people who do get noticably ill has such a low severity/death rate and high recovery rate (99.6% in Britain). What is even more insane is allowing themselves to be fleeced by corporations and industries that are responsible for the largest number of deaths out of any industry even in a normal year! The best part being, big pharma has complete immunity across the board from being held responsible for these vaccine related injuries. The Big Pharma cartel are raking in the profit and literally laughing all the way to the bank.
