Newly released polling data shows that Democrats have more faith in COVID vaccines than in natural immunity.
“Most Americans are concerned about new variants of the COVID-19 virus, but Democrats are more concerned than others, and place more trust in vaccines to protect against the disease,” Rasmussen said. “A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 58% of American Adults are at least somewhat concerned about new variants of the COVID-19 virus, such as Delta and Omicron, including 28% who are Very Concerned. Thirty-nine percent (39%) are not concerned about COVID-19 variants, including 16% who are Not At All Concerned.”
Recently released studies, though, have suggested that natural immunity is just as good or even better protection against the virus than the vaccine.
“Surveys have shown partisan divisions in opinions about the coronavirus ever since the pandemic emerged in early 2020. Far more Democrats (77%) than Republicans (45%) are now concerned about new COVID-19 variants,” Rasmussen said. “Those totals include 42% of Democrats who say they’re Very Concerned about new variants of the virus, compared to just 18% of Republicans. Among those unaffiliated with either major party, 50% are concerned about new COVID-19 variants, including 22% who are Very Concerned.”
