Whopping 59 Percent of Americans Would 'Distrust' Covid Vaccine Released Before Election

Whopping 59 Percent of Americans Would ‘Distrust’ Covid Vaccine Released Before Election — Including HALF of Republicans

An overwhelming and bipartisan majority of Americans say they would “distrust” any coronavirus vaccine that was released before Election Day in November.

According to an Economist/YouGov poll released Thursday, concerns about the safety and efficacy of a COVID-19 vaccine released in time for the election abound.

Respondents to the poll were asked “If the government announced there was a COVID-19 vaccine right before the election, how much would you trust that the vaccine would be safe and effective?”

Among all respondents, 59 percent said they would either “distrust somewhat” or “distrust completely” the safety and efficacy of such a vaccine — with 36 percent saying they would completely distrust it.

And while there is partisan disagreement on a number of coronavirus-related issues, 50 percent of Republicans agree with the majority that a pre-Election Day vaccine would not be trustworthy.
