President Joe Biden’s plan to have teams go door-to-door to urge those unvaccinated for COVID-19 to get the shot is being rejected by the public even before it begins.
By a 53 percent-37 percent margin, likely voters consider the aggressive tactic to be “a bad idea.”
In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, only Democrats and liberals favor the plan. Some 63 percent of liberals like it, as opposed to 22 percent of conservatives.
What’s more, black people, white people, men, and women reject the idea.
Democrats also like the idea of companies requiring workers to be vaccinated. The poll analysis said, “Similarly, 56% of Democrats believe it should be legal for employers to require employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19, but only 34% of Republicans and 36% of unaffiliated voters agree.”
Notably, 71 percent said they had received a vaccine, including 68 percent of Republicans and 79 percent of Democrats. More whites said that they had received the shot than blacks, 76 percent to 52 percent.
