The U.S. Supreme Court is set to take up arguments today in cases seeking to stop the Biden administration from enforcing vax-or-test mandates. A new poll finds a majority of Americans support federal legislation that would do the same.
The Convention of States Action poll, conducted by renown pollster The Trafalgar Group, finds 51 percent of voters surveyed said they support a bill in Congress to block President Biden’s attempts to mandate vaccines for employees at businesses with more than 100 employees. More than 40 percent surveyed said they do not support the measure, and 8.3 percent are unsure.
Not surprisingly, 73 percent of respondents who identify as Republicans support the bill, and less than a third of Democrats do. Nearly 63 percent of Independents want to see Biden’s mandate blocked.
“This is the defining issue of the 2022 election cycle. Elected officials will be held accountable for their position, they cannot hide from this. They either believe that Americans should preserve our Constitutional freedoms we have enjoyed for over 230 years, or they believe bureaucrats in Washington, DC should be empowered to trample on personal liberty,” said Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action.
