Less Than Half Of Americans Likely To Comply With New COVID Lockdown: Gallup Poll

Less Than Half Of Americans Likely To Comply With New COVID
Lockdown: Gallup Poll 1


By Tyler Durden

Earlier we featured the worrisome prospect of a second national
coronavirus lockdown under a future Biden administration,
considering the latest scientist to join Joe Biden’s “special
coronavirus transition advisory team” is
calling for just that
.

Dr. Michael Osterholm, who serves as director of the Center of
Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of
Minnesota, now one of Biden’s coronavirus task force doctors,
told Yahoo News the following
on Wednesday
: “We could pay for a package right now to cover
all of the lost wages for individual workers… if we did
that, then we could lockdown for 4 to 6 weeks
.”

But we know that’s unlikely to go well based on the latest
polling data, as it appears the majority of Americans would
not conform
to such new
stay-at-home orders and travel restrictions
:

Americans are less likely to comply with another coronavirus
lockdown than they were in the spring, with fewer than half
saying in a new poll that they’re very likely to stay home this
time around
, according to a new�Gallup
Poll
 released as record numbers of cases skyrocket
nationwide
.

Here’s the data, according to Gallup, based on the
poll taken between Oct.19 and Nov.1
:

  • 49% say they’re “very likely†to stay
    home
    for a month if mandated, down from 67% who
    said they would in the spring
    .
  • 18% said they were “somewhat likely†to comply.
  • One-third said they would be “unlikely†to comply
    with new lockdown orders.
  • This despite 61% saying they believe the situation is getting
    worse.
  • The number of respondents who said they’d be unlikely to
    comply is double the rate seen from polls in the
    spring
    .

However, it appears more Americans are intentional about social
distancing measures, including wearing masks, compared to in the
spring.

As
Newsmax
summarizes of the numbers: “Meanwhile, the
number of people who are wearing masks has gone up
sharply.†

The report states “Only about half of Americans reported in
April that they were wearing masks, just after the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention suggested wearing them. Now, 88%
reported they wear masks, after the number went up to 92% in
July.â€
