Only 14 percent of voters said they would be more likely to take a coronavirus vaccine if President Donald Trump recommended it, according to a new POLITICO / Morning Consult poll.
Voters said much earlier that they would take a vaccine based on the advice of their family (46 percent), the CDC (43 percent), or the government’s top infectious disease expert, Anthony Fauci (43 percent). A third said they would be vaccinated sooner if the World Health Organization encouraged Americans to do so.
“Kitchen table conversations will be critical to getting Americans vaccinated against COVID-19 when one becomes available. Almost half of the voters would be more likely to be vaccinated against the virus if their family encouraged them to do so, ”said Kyle Dropp, co-founder and principal investigator at Morning Consult.
