Newly released polling data shows the majority of Americans believe the COVID-19 pandemic is over.
Rasmussen Reports released the poll, which comes after President Joe Biden declared the pandemic was over.
“Although a majority of Americans agree with President Joe Biden that the COVID-19 pandemic is over, most Democrats still want to make vaccines against the virus mandatory,” Rasmussen said.
The poll found 43% of those surveyed are not concerned about COVID.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 56% of Likely U.S. voters are still concerned about COVID-19, including 21% who are Very Concerned. Forty-three percent (43%) aren’t concerned about COVID-19, including 19% who are Not At All Concerned about the virus. In January, 68% of voters were concerned about COVID-19.”
Biden’s declaration, and its timing right before the midterm election, has drawn criticism.
Critics also argued that if the pandemic is over, then government mandates have no semblance of justification.
Biden declared the pandemic is over.
So, when will he let those discharged from the military due to vax mandates return to protecting our country?

I keep thinking about this headline.
In May 2020 100,000 deaths was an incalculable loss.
Yet we have now lost nearly 400,000 people to COVID in the US over the last year (Sep 2021 to Sep 2022), & “the pandemic is over.”
This is what the normalization of mass death looks like. pic.twitter.com/a6mhCavKyw

If the pandemic’s “over,” why is Joe Biden still relying on emergency pandemic powers to push his radical agenda?

Biden now says “the pandemic is over” as he’s kicking tens of thousands of healthy soldiers out of the military with his COVID vaccine mandate.
These soldiers should be reinstated immediately.
