...Democrats Rethinking the Coronavirus Vaccine
The decline in Americans' readiness to be vaccinated obscures divergent trends among party groups, with Republicans showing increased willingness to be vaccinated but Democrats and independents showing decreased comfort levels.
After two months of Democrats being more likely than Republicans to say they would be vaccinated, about half of all political party groups now say they would get the vaccine. This marks a new low among Democrats and independents, while Republicans' interest in getting the vaccine has returned to the levels recorded in July, up from their low point in late August.
- Those in U.S. willing to get an FDA-backed COVID-19 vaccine falls to 50%
- Willingness down among Democrats and independents, up among Republicans
- New high of 26% waiting for a vaccine before getting back to normal
