Poll: 43% Of Republicans Say They Won’t Get Vaccine

Vials of COVID-19 vaccine

A new poll by Monmouth University shows 21% of Americans say they will never get a COVID-19 vaccine shot if they can avoid it.

That number is down 3 points from similar polls by Monmouth in January and March. But – the survey was conducted before the recent news regarding Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine.

Political affiliation is a big determining factor in how people feel about the vaccines.

• 43% of Republicans say they’ll never get the shot versus 5% of Democrats; 22% of independents say they want to avoid getting the vaccine altogether.

• Adults under age 65 continue to be more likely to avoid getting the vaccine (25%)  than seniors than seniors (11%).

The survey also found President Biden currently holds a job rating of 54% approve and 41% disapprove. His rating last month stood at 51% to 42%.

Biden garners good reviews for his handling of the coronavirus outbreak with 62% saying he has done a good job and 31% saying he has done a bad job. That’s an increase from 57%–31% in March and 58%–23% in late January.
