Americans broadly support Biden's aggressive vaccination push — despite GOP outrage

[quote] Amid rising concerns over the delta variant spread, a new Politico/Morning Consult poll conducted after President Joe Biden announced a new vaccine push last week found widespread support for key provisions in the initiative. Chiefly, nearly 3 in 5 Americans favored Biden's main provision requiring employers with 100-plus employees to either vaccinate their workforce or implement weekly testing.

[quote] More generally, a new CNN-SSRS poll released Monday found that more than half of Americans support the type of vaccination initiatives included in Biden's new push. A majority of Americans support requiring vaccinations of on-site employees (54%), students doing in-person learning (55%), and people attending big public venues for sporting events and concerts (55%). In recent months, support for such mandates has grown, with mandates for employees and event attendees rising 8 points since April and mandates for students rising 6 points since April.

[quote] Testing mandates appear to be even more popular than vaccine mandates. January polling of testing mandates conducted by Harvard University's T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the COVID Collaborative found overwhelming 79% support for employers requiring workers to take rapid antigen tests in order to gain access to the workplace.

Just going to leave this here to trigger our resident trolls.

Every day that vaccinated people have to suffer at the hands of the asshole unvaccinated, the approval numbers will go up.

I bet some are secretly relieved. They have to be publicly anti-vaxx because it's a tenet of the cult, but some of them probably know deep down that it's legit and could save their lives. So if their employer literally requires them to get it, they now have a great excuse when they do get the vaccine. "Yeah, it's bullshit, but I can't quit my job, I have to support my family!"
