FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
POLL: Voters Reject Push for Employer Vaccine Mandates
75% Report They Have Already Been Vaccinated or Had COVID-19
Americans Are More Likely to Support Businesses that Don’t Require Employees to be Vaccinated
(Austin, TX—Aug 25, 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 August 14th through August 16th of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.
“In poll after poll, Americans of all political stripes choose the freedom-driven approach on COVID-19. Despite this and the fact that most folks report in this survey that they are already vaccinated, Washington, DC continues to push for mandates, ” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “For Washington, there will be electoral consequences in 2022. For corporations and businesses, being on the side of mandates will directly impact their bottom line. On a larger scale, this irrational push for compliance at all costs will have a negative impact on an already pandemic-challenged economy.”
