58 percent of Americans support Biden's new vaccine mandates, despite 'massive partisan gap'

A majority of Americans support the White House's latest vaccination mandate for companies with over one hundred employees, a "key tenet" of President Biden's recently-unveiled, multi-pronged plan to fight the pandemic, a new Morning Consult/Politico poll reveals. Workers may also subject themselves to weekly testing.

58 percent of those surveyed — roughly 3 in 5 — back the federal mandate, and believe it will both reduce nationwide COVID-19 infection rates and increase vaccination. However, as with most things, underpinning the support is a "massive partisan gap," further illustrating the divide between Democrats and Republicans, per Morning Consult. 

Just 33 percent of surveyed Republicans express support for the 100-worker+ vaccination mandate; meanwhile, the overwhelming majority of Democrats — 80 percent — are in favor. 

Sixty-six percent of Republicans also say they view federal vaccine mandates as a violation of their rights, while almost the exact same amount of Democrats — 67 percent — say the opposite, instead regarding such decisions as a protection of their rights, reports Morning Consult. 

Morning Consult and Politico surveyed 2,200 U.S. adults from Sept. 11-13, 2021. Results have a margin of error of two percentage points. See more results at Morning Consult.

1. Media Is Hugely Responsible For Misinformation

And that is what this poll is measuring. Media misinformation. Bring back the Fairness Doctrine that Reagan abolished.

The issue has already been decided by the Supreme Court in the Jacobson v. Massachusetts case which upholds the mandates for small pox vaccinations and standing school vaccinations for childhood diseases. Why doesn't the media research uncover this SCOTUS case and inform the American people.

2. Good idea, 58% is a pretty small number for those who don't want to get sick and possibly die
