Americans have expressed their negative view of President Joe Biden’s plan to send a team “door-to-door” to encourage vaccinations, according to a Rasmussen Reports survey released on Tuesday.
More than half of Americans polled agreed the plan was “a bad idea” in the survey.
The survey specifically asked, “President Joe Biden said it is time for officials to go ‘door to door – literally knocking on doors’ to get people vaccinated against COVID-19. Is this a good idea or a bad idea?”
By party, only 22 percent of conservatives favored the concept. Among Democrats and liberals, 63 percent agreed.
Among those surveyed, 71 percent had received the vaccine, including 68 percent of Republicans and 79 percent of Democrats.
However, there was also strong disagreement between parties regarding whether they favored the idea of companies requiring workers to be vaccinated.
Those in the survey were asked, “Should it be legal for employers to require employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19?”
“Similarly, 56% of Democrats believe it should be legal for employers to require employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19, but only 34% of Republicans and 36% of unaffiliated voters agree,” the report stated.
The survey of 1,000 likely U.S. voters was conducted July 11-12 with a margin of sampling error of +/- 3 percentage points.
