FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
POLL: Majority of Republicans and Independents Say COVID Vaccine Not Necessary for Children
(Austin, TX—Sept 28, 2021) Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018 and 2020—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted September 17th through September 19th of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.
“In poll after poll, we see that the American people are fundamentally skeptical about so-called science coming out of Washington, DC. They see the conflicting information and almost daily shifts in policy, and don’t want their children to be the guinea pigs for a group of bureaucrats who have mismanaged and bungled this crisis from the start,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “School-based mandates are not going to fly with the public.”
