A new poll out from Rasmussen Reports Monday shows Americans are very skeptical of the COVID-19 vaccines.
Almost half of Americans believe the vaccines may be causing unexplained deaths, and one quarter of respondents said they knew someone whose death could potentially be linked to receiving a vaccine.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that (49%) of American Adults believe it is likely that side effects of COVID-19 vaccines have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths, including 28% who think it’s Very Likely,” the firm reported.
“Thirty-seven percent (37%) don’t say a significant number of deaths have been caused by vaccine side effects, including 17% who believe it’s Not At All Likely,” it said.
The poll was conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
According to the results, 71 percent of respondents said they had received at least one dose of the vaccine. As you might expect, those who had not received any dose of the vaccine were more likely to believe that the vaccinations were causing unexplained deaths.
Democrats were more likely to have been vaccinated, while Republicans were more likely to be concerned over the safety of the jabs. White respondents were less concerned with the safety of the shots than blacks and other minorities.
As Americans turn increasingly pessimistic about the novel mRNA-based immunizations, the Biden Administration continues to insist that yearly COVID-19 shots will become as commonplace as your standard influenza shot.
