Politicizing The Vaccine

How Democrats and the media politicized a Covid vaccine. With the ALG Minute, I’m Catherine Mortensen. The head of the government’s coronavirus vaccine program now says that as many as 100 million people could be vaccinated by the end of February. Weirdly, Democrats found a way to politicize a life-saving vaccine. Gallup pollsters have been surveying Americans since July about their willingness to get a Covid vaccination. Democrats were consistently more likely that Republicans to answer yes. But in late August, President Trump announced a vaccine would be available before the end of the year. And Democrats lost their minds. Support among Democrats for a vaccine plummeted in the following two weeks. When it appeared that a vaccine could give President Trump an advantage in the election, Democrats stopped wanting to get vaccinated.

However, since the election, Democrats are much more willing to get vaccinated. When they think Joe Biden will get some sort of credit or advantage for the vaccine, they are more willing to embrace a vaccine. Go figure! For more check us out at the Daily Torch.com
