A new Trafalgar poll has shown the majority of American voters believe COVID-19 originated in a Chinese lab — a theory first floated by Donald Trump at the outset of the pandemic before being smacked down by the mainstream media for months.
“Our @trafalgar_group @COSProject #poll released on the @seanhannity @FoxNews show tonight, shows that most Americans believe #coronavirus came from a lab not nature,” said Trafalgar group chief pollster Robert C. Cahaly.

Republicans were the most likely voters to believe in the lab leak theory. Nearly three out of four respondents (74.1 percent) agreed the virus was human engineered and either intentionally or unintentionally leaked from a Wuhan lab compared.
Among Democrats, 37.2 percent agreed the coronavirus originated in a Wuhan lab. Among Independents, 55.4 percent agreed.
The poll was conducted June 3-7, surveying 1,025 likely voters with a margin of error of 3.06 percentage points.
The survey revealed that the majority of Americans now agree with former President Donald Trump on the issue, a vast change from the media narrative from a year ago.
The new information also shows how much the attitude of Americans has shifted in recent weeks in light of new information, including the public release of thousands of emails from coronavirus spokesman Dr. Anthony Fauci.
