FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Voters Now Sharply Divided over Dr. Anthony Fauci
Majority of Independents and Republicans Want Dr. Fauci to Resign, Huge Majority of Democrats Say He Should Stay
(Austin, TX—January 24, 2022) Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018, 2020, and 2021—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted January 12th through January 14th of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.
“Once known as ‘America’s Doctor’, Dr. Anthony Fauci has become a highly partisan figure among voters,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “His own admissions that public opinion influences his decisions, his almost daily shifts on policy, and his criticism of those who disagree with him has—for Republicans and Independents—removed the sense that Fauci is objective and scientific. Democrats, on the other hand, who agree with Fauci’s point-of-view and critiques, support him with overwhelming numbers. America’s health should not be a partisan issue, and yet his decisions have created this mess.”
