Majority of Americans Reject COVID Shot Mandates

Jul 21, 2021

A new survey shows that the majority of likely American voters believe they should be able to make their own decisions about taking the COVID-19 shot—not the government, their employer or anyone else who thinks the so-called “vaccines” should be mandated.

The Convention of States Action and The Trafalgar Group’s poll conducted July 12-13, 2021, surveyed more than 1,000 likely general election voters. Across party lines, more than 71% of respondents said receiving the COVID shots should be a personal choice. More than 87% of Republicans, over 67% of independents and nearly 59% of Democrats do not want the shots to be mandatory.

“These numbers reveal that hundreds of millions of social media messages, a constant stream of propaganda from the press, paid TV and radio ad campaigns coast-to-coast, daily hammering from Biden Administration officials and cajoling from influencers and celebrities on every possible communication platform are having one profound effect on the public. It’s all backfiring,” said Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action. “Americans have never taken kindly to being told what to do, and they are not going to start now. After being told ‘my body, my choice’ for nearly five decades by the same crowd now hypocritically pushing mandates, is it any wonder the public isn’t on board?”

About 22% of total respondents said the shots should be mandated. Among those who said they should be mandated, 7.2% are Republican, 33% are Democrat and 26.5 % are independent or unaffiliated with a political party. About 7% of respondents were unsure if the shots should be mandatory or their own choice.

Trafalgar conducted the survey shortly after Joe Biden announced a campaign to educate the unvaccinated about the shots.

"We need to go community-by-community, neighborhood-by-neighborhood, and oft times door-to-door, literally knocking on doors," Biden said.

In addition, the administration has partnered with Facebook to work on “flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation” about the coronavirus injections.

The White House also brought 18-year-old Disney actress and pop singer Olivia Rodrigo into the briefing room July 14 to encourage young people to take the shots.

“I am beyond honored and humbled to be here today to help spread the message about the importance of youth vaccinations,” Rodrigo said. “I’m in awe of the work President Biden and Dr. Fauci have done and was happy to help lend my support to this important initiative.”
